Excerpt:

"What aspects of Iberian society were transferred to the New World?

The distinctive features of Iberian societies became part of their American culture. They were heavily urban; many peasants lived in small centers. Commoners coming to America sought to become nobles holding Indian-worked estates. Strong patriarchal ideas were reflected in the family life, which was based on encomiendas, large estates worked by Indians."
