    Summary
    Back in the 15th century, spices like black pepper were as expensive as gold is today and India was the center of the spices trade. Portugal already had a route to India that required them to contour the coast of Africa. Portugal thought that there was a faster route to India if they headed west and so they sent Pedro Alvarez Cabral to find out. However they did not know that before hitting India, they would find land across the Atlantic Ocean, and so they stumbled upon America. It was simply an accident.

    The Brazil Gold Rush connects to natural resourcesPortugal already had experienced success in producing sugar out of sugar cane growing crops in their islands of Acores, Cabo Verde and howMadeira, so it was natural resources leadfor them to conflict. One example of this is how slaves were forcedbring the plant to dig gold in mines. The slaves were beatBrasil, which had expansive land and forcedgreat potential to digincrease their profits significantly. Because soil in Brazil proved to be extremely fertile the mines. But incrops grew strong and because they used slaves, the beggingcost of production was low and so Portugal ensured big profits.
    That lasted until
    the Portuguese were tryingsecond half of the 17th century, when other countries started to produce and sell sugar at a lower price.
    The Brazil Gold Rush started right after that. It started close

    At first Portugal befriended the natives by giving gifts and the natives slowly start trusting the Portuguese men, showing them around and trading goods. Indians would give them gold and silver in exchange for simple artifacts, like fabric. Portugal then discovers pau-brasil a tree from which they could extract a red pigment to dye fabric and realize the abundance of natural resources. At that Portugal realizes the potential for profit in trading. In an effort to establish some type of government, Portugal decides to divide Brazil and send governors and Jesuits all under the direct control of the Portuguese crown, to govern and convert the natives to Catholicism, prohibiting them to perform their native rites and ceremonies.
