Five aspects:

1) Religion (how did the Incas and Aztecs regard the Europeans from a religious perspective?)

2) Social structure (how did the arrival of the Europeans affect the social structure of the Incans vs. the Aztecs? You may want to include the differences in the social structure of the Europans and the indiginous peoples.)

3) Culture (How did the culture of the incans and aztecs affect their interactions with Europeans? How did European culture interact with Incan/Aztec culture)

4) Politics (What were the political ramifications of interacting with the Europeans, for Incan and Aztec leaders? What kind of political systems dis the Incans and Aztecs have?)

5) Warfare (when the Incans and Aztecs clashed with the Europeans, how did the battles go. Look at this form the perspective of weaponry, strategy, conventiosn of war, and other demands on the resources of the Incan and Aztec militaries— remember the Incans and Aztecs were in charge of military empires before the Europeans arrived, so they already had existing ilitary operations)

6) Possibly trade— this may be a good extra aspect, if other aspects prove hard to research. Presumably, the Incans and Aztecs did engage in some commercial activities with the Europeans
