In 1830, the Indian Removal Act was signed, forcing the Indians to move west of the Mississippi River. 4,000 of the 15,000 Cherokees died along the trail of tears, meaning over 25% of the Cherokees died. Although they did not want to leave their land, they had to because of President Jackson. The Indians should not have been forced off their land. President Jackson did not treat the Indians fairly, the land belonged to the Indians, and the Indians rights were being violated.
They were forcibly removed from their families and went to camps where the would become more like the white community. In the text by NSDC, they state, “Children were being removed in order to...stop their parents, families and communities from passing on their culture, language and identity to them, (NSDC). This happened from the late 1800s and continued into the 1970s. People’s

Another one of Robert Maine arguments was that Windshuttle claimed that the 20,000 deaths of the Aboriginals did not happened because it was not documented. Although Windshuttle argument of the Aboriginals being illiterate and not keeping any written records does not mean there history did not happen. ‘They responded to violence by the Aborigines towards white settlers cautiously and reluctantly, and their overriding concern was to prevent retaliatory violence by settlers and convicts from getting out of hand.’ That was one of Windshuttle argument that the only reason the white people killed Aboriginals was in retaliation, but all aboriginals on Tasmania were killed which is also know as a genocide. The white settlers were on a mission to kill
They were forced to leave their homes to move somewhere they did not know about. Also how badly they were treated and the war against one another unlike the Jews the Native Americans were not put in death camps but they were placed somewhere they had no idea about that area so in rebellion of not accepting this forced change the Native Americans decided to fight back against the Americans to get their ways and land back to the way it was before. During the war against Americans the Native Americans did lose a lot of lived like mother’s, children, men, women, people just in general who had loved one same as the
Under the act each head of an Indian family to be given 160 acres of farmland or 320 acres of grazing land. The remaining tribal lands were to be declared "surplus" and opened up for whites. The lands given to the Indians however were fallow, dry and unfit for production which placed them at a severe disadvantage. The boarding schools which were a part of the act were a concern. Many Native American children died after they were exposed to diseases for which they had no immunity (Bickford-Duane, 2015.
Segregation stopped a long time ago but some people still don’t like other races in America because they say whites were the first ones here which everyone knows that’s a lie, the native americans were the first ones to step foot on america . For example Donald trump wants to send everyone back but he needs to go to because he’s russian and his wife isn’t from here either , he doesn’t want to let muslims in because he thinks there all terrorist . Most people that come to the United States come here to better there lifes and to raise money to take care of there families and some people’s rights are taken away . I believe they should send back the criminals that don’t belong here but let the people who are trying to make a living and make there life a better place stay here . Immigrants are paying all this money to get there papers and some people are just wasting money and it’s going down the drain .
Chief Joseph represents the views of the Indian people who are being forced off their land. The Indians point of view is much different from the American government and people. The Indians wanted peace and to remain on their land. “From where the sun now stands I will fight no more against the white man.” While the American people felt it was their destiny to expand and progress forward they were crushing the people who had lived on the land.
Anglophone people are denied jobs, education, and basic human rights while our land is looted for natural resources. This past Christmas, one of my aunts and her children narrowly escaped death as their village was burned to the ground by the government. Luckily, her and her 5 children were able to make it to safety in neighboring villages. Unfortunately, her husband was separated from them amidst the chaos. We have not heard from him since.
In defence to these assumptions Chinua Achebe wrote the novel Things Fall Apart. Achebe’s defence to these are that the Igbo people are civilized in culture, religion, language, and government. Culture is important to the Igbo people the quote” After the Week of Peace every man and his family began to clear the bush to make new farms. The cut bush was left to dry and fire was set to it. The rainy season was approaching when they would go away until the dry season” (Achebe 32).
What also triggered war was weakening relations with the Indians in the West. While the government tried to remove them from their lands to make room for settlers, they tried to civilize the Indians the best they could. The Indians that were acquired through the Louisiana Purchase were now significantly outnumbered by white settlers, and some tribes began to take on white ways of life, such as slavery and agriculture. Other Indians, called nativists, wanted to completely exterminate European influences and defy the settlement of their lands. The vote to declare war on Britain in 1812 reflected a divided nation between North and South.
American and Australian native residential boarding schools have a lot in common, since they both s have the same goal. Which was to assimilate Native children into Western culture. Both Native American children and Aboriginal were taken to the boarding school by force. Their family did not have the option to keep their children either. Both System were sponsored by churches and the government backing.
California needs to listen to the people in this town and find another way to preserve this water . Our state is putting these people through a horrible time and this town may not even be suitable for living and people who have lived there for almost 50 to 60 years will have to move out of the house they most likely we would want to be deceased in . They are putting little children trough things adults can 't even handle for a day ! Farming will become obsolete and this town will have to receive packages from other cities or towns just for food or vegetables . In conclusion this is horrible and California should not revoke our privileges and preserve their water a totally
This Nomadic lifestyle was very important to the sustainability of nature around them and the grounds they were on. Nature suffered immensely after European extortion simply because they didn’t take care of it like the natives did. Entire ecosystems and species of plants as well as some animals vanished because of how Europeans treated the land. The ravaging of the land would continue for several years after the Europeans would arrive and all in the name of progress. A classic example of this would be the industrial revolution, settling Europeans (the British) would now be called Americans after participating in a revolution.
