After reading about the Native Americans and their lives on the reservations I believe they faced considerable difficulties when it came to a reservation lifestyle. However, I think the most difficult aspect of the reservation system for them was the acceptance of more passive roles. I believe this was a major cause of their culture identity being sacrificed. After the Native Americans arrived on the reservations they had to give up their hunter-warrior roles and accept more passive ones (Olson & Beal p.194). I believe the differences that came along with living on the reservations caused changes in the traditional ways of thinking about power and authority so then responsibilities changed also.
This website offers the point of view of the Duwamish people through descendent of the tribe. The website provides a brief history on the Treaty of Point Elliott and the following attacks that took place stating, “European-American immigrants soon violated the Point Elliott Treaty of 1855, triggering a series of Native rebellions”.

The Pequot war was a long ongoing feud between settlers and some native tribes against the most powerful tribe in Rhode island: the Pequot tribe. and the most important day of this war which changed America was may 26, 1637 the massacre
The ones that were mainly affected by the westward migration were the native Indians. But the relentless immigration of Americans to the West soon came to face one of its biggest obstacles; Indian tribes who refused to give up their territory. Even though we were able to take many territories from the Indians in Georgia, Tennessee, and Mississippi there were several tribes that resisted. As the Indians saw themselves without protection they turned to the British for backup. This bond between the British and the Indians played a part in causing the War of 1812.
Native Americans were greatly affected by the expansion of the United States during the 1800s. As the U.S. moved west, they stole large amounts of Native American land by settling the land and killing the Natives who once lived there. Also during this time, their culture was being taken from them due to assimilation. While United States citizens were expanding into the west, many Native American lives were lost. They were also responsible for destroying a major food and supply source for Native Americans.
The Indian Removal Act In the beginning, The United States recognized Indian tribes as separate nations of people entitled to their own lands that could only be obtained from them through treaties. Due to inexorable pressures of expansion, settlement, and commerce, however, treaties made with good intentions were often perceived as unsustainable within just a few years. The Indians felt betrayed and frequently reacted with violence when land promised to them forever was taken away. For the most part, however, they directed their energies toward maintaining their tribal identity while living in the new order. The United States under the leadership of President Andrew Jackson dealt with settling the Indians the most humane possible way, for
Nat was a madman because of the many horrible things that were done during the short rebellion. First of all, he killed entire families. He killed 60 men, women, and children (film).

Because of the lack of food, English tried to get the food from the Indians by destroying their villages. After a year, the governor of Virginia ordered his people to make Indians work hard for the English and pay them as corn and skins. They attacked one Indian town, killed fifteen people, threw the children and shot their brains out. The colonizers were not at all ashamed for taking their land. They believed it is good to have their land by brutal means.
Many of their own soldiers have been killed and sacrificed, this rage of anger led the Tlaxcala to join the army of the Spaniards, which ultimately created a powerful force. When the human sacrifice was first introduced to Cortez by Montezuma, he immediately called him a fool for believing in such hogwash. In other words, he considered of the sacrifice as a sign of an evil culture. This highly motivated the Spaniards to conquer, what they considered was an inhuman culture.
