I also didn 't know that Native Americans were beaten for speaking their native language but when WW2 came they were welcomed into the military and allowed to speak their native language because it benefited the military. My reaction to the chapter was that learned many things about the Native Americans that I didn 't know about. I noticed that in this chapter of Ambrose that it has many point of views. But all of the stories connect to personal experiences of the writer and to treatment of the Native Americans. He also gives a little bit of history on how the us government treated the Native Americans.
Many of these documents are to show favor to the natives, so it seems pretty one sided. This may mean the documents and other items that were collected were only collected from one part of the nation. There are also many primary sources that are electronic resources. One of these sources is titled “Andrew Jackson and the age of American power”, which does not seem like it will include much about the treatment of native americans, however one section includes conversations, documents such as letters and essays all by the Jackson administration, with the removal of indians as their topic. Finally I found another electronic resource that discusses the forced relocations of the natives.
President Andrew Jackson was a very popular president and did a lot of things during his presidency. But in my opinion, I think he was not democratic because he wanted everything done his way or no way, like during the Indian Removal act in Document 10. He wanted the Indians land so he had his soldiers move them \west into the Indian territory. One way that President Andrew Jackson was democratic was his Bank Veto Message to Congress in Document 4. From what I read and what he said, I thought it sounded like he didn’t want to shut down the United States Bank.
Many colonial powers change the Indian’s way of life. However, when the United States gained its own independence from Great Britain, this integration problem still not resolved. As the American government gained control almost all indigenous lands, assimilation has become forceful act for the Indians to follow for survival. Compare to the early arrival of the Europeans, integration with the Americans in the contemporary period have caused the Indians to become increasingly more frustrated and resentment over time. The relation to the colonial times for integration was friendlier in some aspects even when violence is used to solve the issue.
Thomas Paine uses logos to persuade his opinion on having the people support the army more in, he use facts, logic and reason to appeal to the people, whom knew many words that most of the people today do not. A way he shows logos is in “They sift out the hidden thought of man, and hold them up in public to the world. Many a disguised Tory has lately shown his head, that shall penitentially solemnize with curses the day on which Howe arrived upon the Delaware.”, basically saying that the Tories and British has to hide in order to survive from the Americans, and that they will regret the decisions Howe has put upon them. In the next example that shows logos, Paine presents the Tories are wimps, for they will not join the Revolution and take
People thirst to discover their identity. Most will believe that they discovered and made their identity, but they didn’t. In Hal Borland’s “When The Legends Die”, It shows how a young indian boy’s (Thomas Black Bull) identity changes throughout his miserable life. Identities are formed more by society than by their owners. The first time that Thomas has his identity altered by society is when he is getting baptized, not because his parents wanted him to be baptized, but because the white society he was living in pressured his parents into it.
Before the Europeans began arriving in North America to expand, the Natives had already established self governing tribes. In the map of Native Cultures in North America from the year 600 to 1500, it is evident that the groups functioned independently from each other. Although, several tribes lived close together, and because of this they shared many similarities but also faced conflicts between each other, due to the change in weather and the poor living conditions it caused. Tribes became weak, and with the “odd-looking strangers” who “frequently took away women and children never to be seen again” and carried plagues with them, leaders understood they must join together to become stronger against the Europeans (Miller). Rather than being
The Crusades: A Short History is one of his many books that feature a part of the crusades. In this book,
I remembered all the experiences I was put through, while watching them grow up while having me. I take the lessons, the time outs, and the talks all to my heart. I take how my parents lived their lives every day and try to make sure I use that same effect on my life. From this transition I gained independence, which was one of my values. I believe if you do not have personal goals and you rely on everyone else to help achieve your goals than you’re not really aspiring as a person.
Personal fulfillment, a flexible schedule, making proper connections, and just enjoying life have always been something I’ve strived for, but have never been above money in my personal hierarchy. As much as I still adore that plan, my mind, like most things, went through a small altercation. When I first attended Kirkwood this previous fall, I landed a work-study position working for the Boy’s & Girl’s Club of Cedar Rapids. I was assigned to Hoover elementary. Like any other job, I was provided a schedule.
