Sheila Ahyakak-Yazzie's curator insight, October 17, 2013 12:55 PM

John Cabot sailed to England and settled there.  He thought he was sailing to Asia, to get gold, gems and spices, to get a share of profits. John sailed north of the Atlantic Ocean, when he saw land on June 24, 1497 it was not Asia. He actually sailed to NewFoundland (now part of Canada.) John and his crew sailed back home and the following years he again with 5 ships to Japan. He was never seen again.
