Nearly 250 year after the Revolutionary War, there was a mistaken idea that the war was fought only between the British and the 13 British colonies. However, the Native American Indians played a major role in the Revolutionary War.
What exactly was covered in this paper? Well considering the opening question was “What makes pueblo houses so unique?” I would say that Pueblo Houses were covered. What makes them so unique, for starters they were made hundreds of years ago, second they were used by the same people for hundreds of years, and last but not least they look like modern day apartments.
Indians from the Southwest were farmers. They grew corn , beans , and squash . They also grew melons and peaches . There was very little rain . The Indians of the Southwest dug ditches to collect water for their crops. Some hunted small animals like birds and rabbits . They ate wild turkeys , too. They also had to hunt for them to.
When the Europeans began colonizing the New World, they had a problematic relationship with the Native Americans. The Europeans sought to control a land that the Natives inhabited all their lives. They came and decided to take whatever they wanted regardless of how it affected the Native Americans. They legislated several laws, such as the Indian Removal Act, to establish their authority. The Indian Removal Act had a negative impact on the Native Americans because they were driven away from their ancestral homes, forced to adopt a different lifestyle, and their journey westwards caused the deaths of many Native Americans.
Without doubt, American Indian culture of America is a broad topic to discuss. Two cultures which tend to settle far away from each other still segment some things in common and when the research goes deeper they even differ from each other in some cases. The Pueblo people of the American Southwest settle in the desert of currently known New Mexico and Arizona. The tribes of the Mississippi Valley settled at the bank of the Mississippi river. Their way of life differs from each other when it comes to the economy, government, way of worship, housing and a lot more but they even share some things in common such as their way of clothing and sometime diet. They seem more different then identical.
From eight present-day states; Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, and South Carolina, more than forty thousand square miles, lived the largest Native American tribe in the United States. The Cherokee. The Cherokee were once a very powerful tribe, they had lived and hunted in a large area of land. Like many Native American tribes, the Cherokee had called themselves “the real people” or the “principal people”. In Cherokee, that word is Ani-Yun-wiya.
After the recent readings for Zinn’s book, I began to do some research on the Indians helping the British during the Revolutionary War. I Google “Roles of Indians during the Revolutionary War,” and I sound a very interesting site that backed up Zinn’s statement. Many of the Indians, especially the Shawnee, Creeks and the powerful Cherokee and Iroquois helped the British in the American Revolution. The British promised Indians more than their freedom, they also promised to stop settlement on their land. However, there are some Indians that fought for America as well, those tribes were most involved with people who would become Americans. They lived in an intermarriage community and have personal relationships with them.
Even though Native American involvement during the Revolutionary War is often overlooked. they played a significant role. Not only did the war determine which direction in history America would take, but it also progressed the downfall of the Native Americans. They lost land and freedoms while America gained it.
Anyone can read a history textbook assigned in class and understand the events in their minds, but understanding the emotion of the people who were there at the events are lost in blank monotone text. Being able to recite events dryly from your textbook is not knowing one’s history. In order to fully understand history, you have to be able to understand every aspect of the events. Every emotion, thought, and desire of the people who were there as the history was made. In order to tell history, you need to attach emotion to the words being expressed so that the reader can fully understand what happened. In this context, with the help of Dr. Herbert T. Hoover, Joseph Cash gathered fifty-eight oral stories from Native Americans who had faced oppression
Prior to the English landing on the Eastern shores in 1607 of what is now known as the United States of America, Native Americans dominated areas from coast to coast [of the future nation]. Many of these tribes had built their own form of society, influenced by maternal dominance, agriculture, fishing, hunting, trade, and religion (Foner, Chapter 1).Unfortunately, their way of life was altered as soon as Europeans began emigrating and landing on the Americas, and began taking over the land Native Americans had possessed for centuries. Although weakened by a wave of disease, many tribes showed acts of resistance against their invaders, in disputes like the Pueblo Revolt, King Philip 's’ War, and Worcester v. Georgia. These acts of resistance
DBQ - What significant impact did Russell Means and the American Indian Movement have on America during the 1960s -1970s?
There has been several conflicts involving the United States such as the Mexican war, western Indian war, civil war, the cold war and several other wars. The Smithsonian goes through several of these wars. After looking through several of these conflicts I found the most interesting to be western Indian war. Indians were moved to reservations against their will, the Indians did try to fight back. However they were fighting in a battle that had already been lost. Countless Indians died from the conflict, their enemy had more soldiers and weapons than them. Nonetheless the biggest issues wasn’t the soldiers or weapons it was actually the disease the Europeans brought over, and unforgiving environments. There was a quote by Lakota chief sitting bull in the exhibit that said “if the white men take my country, where can I do?’. The Indians were taken from their homes and Im sure the thought back then was, “how would they make up for what was taken from them, how would they be able to make themselves whole again?”
There was a surge in the Pueblo movement to purge their homelands from foreign influence and return to traditional, Pre-Spanish ways of life such as beliefs and customs, ritual purification, performance of traditional ceremonies.Some of the history and causes of the Pueblo Revolt were dictated by political policies and beliefs which shaped the historical background to the causes of the Pueblo Revolt.Image result for pueblo revolt picsImage result for pueblo revolt pics
Throughout the history of the United States, there generally have been dozens of particularly social movements, which is fairly significant. From the African American Civil Rights Movement in 1954 to the feminism movement in 1920, protests for all intents and purposes have helped these groups basically earn rights and fight injustice in a really major way. Some injustices that these groups face range from lack of voting rights to police brutality, or so they essentially thought. The indigenous people of North America aren’t actually immune to these injustices, basically contrary to popular belief. Back in the 1968, the American Indian Movement generally was formed to for all intents and purposes give natives security and peace of mind in a
