Both had multiple casualties from malnutrition and disease and had to endure the same hardships. The difference is that the United States did this action out of greed for the Native Americans land that they own east of the Mississippi River. Ethan Davis rights in his article “An Administrative Trail of Tears: Indian Removal,” that Congressional Democrats told society that the Removal Act was "a measure of life and death. Pass the bill on your table, and you save [the Indians]. Reject it, and you leave them to perish"(11).
For example, there was a failure of peace negotiations with the Battle of Fallen Timbers. Many Native Americans there in which Wayne opposed, feeling that war was inevitable, he decisively defeated them. He used the Treaty of Greenville(1795) with the chiefs of the defeated tribes, who ceded lands in the Northwest Territory. He was ruthless in the way he killed innocent Native americans. The fighting took place on the Maumee River, near present-day Toledo.
These tribes were more civilized then we are lead to believe. White Americans loathed the Indians because they were “undeserving” of the fertile land they had. White settlers wanted this land so bad they burned down house and towns, stole animals and lived in land that didn’t belong to them. They tormented the native Americans for decades and then the state governments started passing laws to strip the Indians of their rights.
Once European men stepped foot onto what is now known as North America, the lives of the Native Americans were forever changed. The Indians suffered centuries of torment and ridicule from the settlers in America. Despite the reservations made for the Natives, there are still cultural issues occurring within America. In Sherman Alexie’s, The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven, the tragic lives of Native Americans in modern society are depicted in a collection of short stories taking place in the Spokane Reservation in Washington state. Throughout the collection, a prominent and reoccurring melancholic theme of racism against Native Americans and their struggle to cope with such behavior from their counterpart in this modern day and age is shown.
The relocation was soon after viewed as a catastrophic failure, and The Navajos where than returned to their native lands by the Treaty of 1868. 3.The Trail of Tears was an unfortunate event that helped pave the way for American expansion. The Cherokee Trail of Tears did not solely comprise of Cherokee Native Americans, but many of the
Following a series of battle between his tribe and the United States Military, On October 4th, 1877 Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce tribe gave a speech of surrender to an aid of General Oliver Howard. Chief Joseph's “I Will Fight No More Forever” describes the effects that U.S. Westward Expansion had Native American tribes. The literary movement associated with Chief Joseph's speech is Realism.

If Native Americans were not compliant, Americans would murder them. Although Manifest Destiny was seen as an inevitable movement among Americans and resulted in the formation of the American West in the Nineteenth century, it was truthfully an act of invasion and subjugation against peoples who had settled the land for hundreds of years earlier. Manifest Destiny led to an obvious upsurge in racial
The movie Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee was released in 2007 by producers Clara George, Tom Thayer, and Dick Wolf and directed by Yves Simoneau. The film is based around the events of the government, and the Sioux after the battle of Little Bighorn concerning the Natives moving on to reservations, and becoming assimilated. The film is based off the book of the same name by historian Dee Brown. Sitting Bull is an iconic Native American in the American West history.
They begin with Hemingway’s rejection, in “A Farewell to Arms,” of the high, old language, his insistence on concreteness: “I had seen nothing sacred, and the things that were glorious had no glory and the sacrifices were like the stockyards at Chicago if nothing was done with the meat except to bury it. There were many words that you could not stand to hear and finally only the names of places had
One being forced out of the only home they ever knew, only for the gain of their oppressors is extremely harsh. In 1830, president Andrew Jackson formulated a cruel plan to do this, announcing his goals to the nation. He believed that all natives were savages, and worth less than white men. Jackson’s speech on American Indian removal possesses several flaws, as he neglects the fact that the Indians were there first, fails to empathize with the native population as he plans to forcibly remove them, and is morally incorrect in his judgement of the Native Americans.
He present this by discussing the illegality of the treaties pertaining to the Indian Act being passed, the government not fulfilling their treaty promises, the government starving the aboriginals, and by oppressing them and stealing their land. The interpretation of the situation by Harring does differ James Daschuk’s. Harring explicitly states that the aboriginals were starved on purpose “local Indian Affairs authorities were given direct orders to starve able-bodied Indian men and issued inadequate rations for Indian women and children” (Harring 120), when Daschuk only provides information pertaining to the famine, and not that it was done on purpose. Harring was the most convincing as he blatantly blames the government for the harm caused on the aboriginals and sets the stage for how maltreated the aboriginals were by the government. Conclusively, James Daschuk provides two fairly convincing chapters, pertaining to the aboriginal people in Western Canada and on the plains, who were ravaged with disease, fighting, famine and an immense loss of land.
and they were looking 3G’s (Gold, God, and Glory). Spanish were doing so greedy and tortured to Native but disease was the worst enemy and some of the survivors about 90-95%. In 1616, an epidemic were killed 90% of the coastal Indians.
