Their way of life was also harmed because with the expansion came the building of a railroad. The U.S. citizens were killing buffalo to feed railroad workers and to give leather to factories. Around 1 million buffalo were killed each year and soon they were dying off. In document five, it shows what each part of the buffalo was used for. It shows that the Native Americans used every part of the animals just to survive.
It opened in 1880 and closed in 1920. In between that time the Dawes Indian Act happened in 1887. Politicians and religious leaders complained about the mistreatment of Indians. Federal legislation divided our Native American lands and among each of the Indian families granted each head of the family 160 acres. It forced us to become farmers working individual plots of land.
.” (1830). In may of 1830 the Indian Removal act was passed, From then on indian life was never the same. Removing the indians from their land was unconstitutional and was not justified. Indian Removal violates many aspects of the Constitution. For example in the Preamble of the Constitution it states “Promote the general welfare” (1789) and in the trail of tears (which was a direct result of Indian Removal) nearly 4,000 people died.Which shows that Indian Removal violate the Preamble of the Constitution by not “promoting the General Welfare” (1789).
The English colonist who settled in Massachusetts received assistance at first from the local Indians tribes, but by 1675 there had been friction between the English and the Indians for many years. On June 20 of that year, Metacomet, whom the colonists called Philip, led the Wampanoag tribe in the first of a series of attacks on the colonist settlements. The war, known today as King Philip’s War, raged on for more than a year and left three thousand Indians and six hundred colonist dead. Metacomet’s attempt to retain power in his native land failed. Finally he too is killed, and the victorious colonists sold his wife and children into slavery.
Andrew Jackson caused the death of 12,290 Indians during Indian removal. Andrew Jackson was the 7th President of the United States of America and a former general during the War of 1812.He quickly rose to power by being the “voice of the common man” he had 11 children and a wife yet he also signed one of the most conservation act ever the Indian Removal Act. Andrew Jackson shouldn 't be allowed to be on our money because he caused the death of tens of thousands of Indians and violates the constitution.
The Indian Removal Act was passed in the year 1830 and by 1837 46,000 Native Americans were forced from their lands. “Long time we travel on way to new land. People feel bad when we leave old nation. Women cry and make sad wails. Children cry and many men cry, and all look sad like when friends die, but they say nothing and keep on going towards west.
Between June and December of 1838, more than 15 thousand Cherokees were forced to depart their homes in the southern Appalachians and walk over a thousand miles to new Indian Territories. Approximately 4 to 8 thousand Cherokee Indians died on their journey of, the Trail Where They Cried. This removal became the most renowned, as if it was the poster board for all the wrong, the Removal Act of 1830 imposed. Although there were other walks that occurred by different tribes, the Cherokee 's was one of pure disaster. The Cherokee 's walk to their new homes was a genocide performed by the American government.
This treaty was between the Sioux Indians and the US government, and guaranteed the western portion of South Dakota and Powder River country. The US promised that any forts and trails occupied by US troops on Sioux territory would be abandoned. In addition to the treaty with the Cheyenne tribe being violated, the treaty with the Sioux Indians was also violated. Miners started mining and the railroad company who did not want to build around the territory decided to start building tracks on Sioux territory. It was a horrible time for the miners and the railroad employees as they started getting killed left and right.
The “Trail of Tears” is where the Cherokee nation was forced to move to the east. The “Trail of Tears” was part of Jackson 's Indian Removal Act of 1830. In the textbook “The American Pageant”, page 267 in the book it states that “Jackson’s policy led to the forced uprooting of more than 100,000 Indians. In 1830 Congress passed the Indian Removal Act, providing for the transplanting of all Indian tribe then resident east of the Mississippi.” In other words this is saying that, because of Jackson’s selfishness of wanting to expand land more than 100,000 Indians lost their lands. In this tragical trail called the “Trail of Tears” about 4,000 of them died on the trail due to hunger, and disease.
Prior to the Trail of Tears, the Chickasaw had established schools with the assistance of the U.S. government. However, once the Removal Act was passed, all assistance was taken from them. They were downtrodden and they had no incentive to reestablish their schools or their government. Due to their defiance against the U.S. government the Seminoles incurred the greatest wrath of the U.S. government. In some cases the Seminoles were hunted with bloodhounds, violently removed from their homes, without being able to take anything and arrived at Fort Gibson, cold, hungry, scared and disillusioned.
Many Native American tribes, including the Sioux, had been hunting and living off of the land long before the white man had arrived. Through the years, these tribes had claimed ownership over the land and were enraged when the settlers began to invade and demolish their land, killing their main source of food and clothing, the buffalo. To make matters worse, President Andrew Jackson enacted the Indian Removal Act which authorized the forcing of these tribes onto reservations in Oklahoma and elsewhere. But, some tribes, the Sioux in particular, fiercely resisted. Hostilities between the Native Americans and the white man were now more apparent than ever.
According to Ward Churchill, a professor of ethnic studies at the University of Colorado, the reduction of the North American Indian population from an estimated 12 million in 1500 to barely 237,000 in 1900. This drop was caused in part to the smallpox epidemic that swept the native tribes killing vast numbers, the push into their land and the reservations we established on the principle of our freedom but taking away theirs was an overlooked atrocity that shouldn 't have happened. Additionally the wars to oust the settlers was more than justified by the actions of those in jamestown and other first generation colonies.
Jackson, like the common man back then, supported slavery. He killed, and took the land from millions of Native Americans and push them west. This was known as the Trail of Tears, the saddest time in history of the Native Americans. He vetoed the re-charter of the Bank of the United States by abusing
In 1870 the United States government decided that they wanted to remodel the Native American Culture. They began with forcing all Indians to live on small, unprotected land which they called an Indian reservation. Their next step was to put our Native children into extremely harsh boarding schools and have them stripped of their culture. They decided it would be easiest to take the culture away from our children instead of adults. In 1877 the Congress set aside $20,000 to reeducate all Native children, their goal was to “kill the Indian, and save the child.” Often times the schools that the children were assigned to could be 800+ miles from their homes and family.
Bill like Hillary knew about murder that was going on and didn 't nothing about it or even covered it up. The Rwanda genocide was an 100 day murder between Hutus and their neighbor the Tutsi. This slaughter killed over 800,000 people that left the streets riddled with dead bodies. Children were raped and dismembered. Bill knew what was going on and the only thing he did was cover up any evidence of it.
