Wow emoticon So GUESS What was the first native word the Spanish learned when they arrived in the Americas?

Guess aztecs/aztec-life/wheels-help-or-hindrance The answer: It was canoe! What they heard was the Arawak Indian word canaoua. This became the Spanish word canoa, which in English eventually became canoe. It is of course the general term all over the world for a dug-out boat - seen for the first time by Spaniards in the Caribbean.

Find out if the Aztecs used wheeled vehicles...
