The constitution did not outline specific details for relations with Natives, so as America grew older, the government was left to deal with the Indians however they pleased. As America expanded west in the 1800s, conflict with natives was inevitable. In 1830, Congress passed the Indian Removal Act of 1830, asking the natives to give up their land in exchange for money. Some refused to move off their native land, such as the Cherokees. As a result of this, they were removed and forced to make the journey known as the Trail of Tears.
Manifest Destiny created problems with Native Americans including the Indian Removal Act. In the mid-nineteenth century, Native Americans were in control of most of the land east of the Mississippi River and almost all the West. Americans believe that “ Expansion hinged on a federal policy of Indian removal. The harassment and dispossession of American Indians - depended on manifest destiny’s belief in the divinely ordained process of putting land to its best use” (yawp). American’s desired expansion so much they removed Native Americans from their homes, places they had lived for years because it meant a little more land for them.

The family rushes to the hospital off the reservation to only encounter prejudice from other patients. At this point, there is a clear representation that those who do not live within the reservation are disrespectful towards the natives.

Perhaps the most controversial of Jackson’s actions during his presidency is the Indian Removal Act of 1830 that lead to the Trail of Tears. Soon after becoming president, Jackson passed the former act which called for the relocation of native tribes from their homelands to a designated “Indian territory” in present-day Oklahoma. While Jackson had a clear idea of his plans, he befriended the tribes and promised them prosperity, friendship, and the possibility of becoming civilized children of God. In other words, he, the symbol of reassurance in America, stabbed the backs of all natives. Beyond the question of Jackson 's morality, what was the ultimate reason behind the removal?

By following the modeled government described in the Act, tribes would be eligible for federal funds to purchase land, start business ventures, and receive various social services.
