One change brought about by European colonization was the introduction of exotic diseases to which the natives had no immunity. Examples of such diseases included smallpox, typhus, cholera, and measles. These diseases resulted in whole villages being wiped out. This meant there was often little resistance to the European invaders. The members that remained ended up being assimilated by the colonialists. This resulted in a hybrid people who were more resistant to disease but who in the long run lost their culture and identity.
