Answer Settlers from France were the first Europeans to settle in the land they called "Acadia". These people became known as Acadians. Acadia was the name …the French gave to what we now know as Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and parts of New Brunswick, the Gasp� Peninsula and Maine. Over time, this group of farming people grew into a culture with rich traditions, customs and folklore that was uniquely their own. Acadia was in an important geographic position. Its territory controlled the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and was close to valuable fishing grounds, shipping routes and the British colonies along the Atlantic seaboard. It is not surprising that the French and British were constantly battling for control of it. The colony was located mostly along the southeastern shore of the Baie Fran�aise (Bay of Fundy), which today is the Annapolis Valley area of Nova Scotia. Port-Royal was the first real settlement in Acadia and became the capital of the colony. Between 1755 and 1763, thousands of Acadians were forced from their homes and shipped off to other parts of the continent, and to Europe. Although they lost their land, homes and possessions, they were able to hold onto their culture. Many Acadians eventually returned, and continue to live in the Maritimes today. Acadians are now recognized as a unique cultural group. Descendants of Acadians also live in various parts of the United States.

for goods and spices that's only if we are talking about Asia, but it could be for America, too.

The early explorers came to the Caribbean by accident. Columbus thought the Caribbean was actually the East Indies but found evidence of abundant natural resources. His ex…pedition found gold, silver and copper which was valuable and make his exploration worthwhile. Spain named the Caribbean the West Indies and continued to explore. Spain brought settlers to set up forts and towns to stockpile the goods they were exporting to the old world. Other nations follow suit and settled much of the Caribbean as they claimed territory. Individuals might've come to farm or operate necessary trades such as building, repair, blacksmithing, schooling and medical care but they were encouraged and transported by the nation/government that sailed the boat. Those nations only cared to export goods and materials back to the old world in Europe.
