We have to look at the bigger picture. Yes, it does not seem logical that the Spanish and Portuguese would kill the Gauarani if they were trying to create laborers. These indiginous people, though, represented a much larger group of people all over the country. This group of Gauarani was only a small portion that was lost as laborers, it was a small loss to the Spanish and Portuguese in terms of the slave movement.
