Retrace the adventures of Spanish Conquistadors five hundred years after they traveled to the Americas in search of fame and fortune -- initiating a centuries-long era of imperialism and launching a debate about human rights that continues to this day.

Log onto and meet the Conquistadors as well as the indigenous peoples they encountered. This Online Learning Adventure parallels an upcoming PBS documentary, "In the Footsteps of the Conquistadors," brought to you by Michael Wood and Maya Vision, the makers of "In the Footsteps of Alexander the Great."

Redwire Headquarters are based in Vancouver BC. The uncensored mag has been around for 3 years. We now publish 2 different mags 4 times a year. One is an uncensored National magazine. The other is a BC-wide Native Youth Job-Infozine. We have a radio show and are on air 3 times a month.

Our Publishing Ethic is Pride and Honour. Respect for the writers words. We don't edit, or temper down harsh views. ect. In Canada 60% of the Native publication is under the age of 25. Our political leaders sometimes forget that their decisions will impact the next Seven Generations. The opinions of young people hardly get through to the decision making tables. Redwire is really important in that real opinions, views and wisdom from Native Youth from all over Canada are getting printed and taken more seriously.
