They're invaluable trade partners, and with missionaries in place, they'll provide a steady stream of new colonists. Their settlements eat up a little bit of territory, but given enough time, they'll dissolve their settlements and give you their population in the form of converted natives.
Now it's time to explore the darker side of Colonization. It begins after the jump."
