For instance, his oldest brother, Hugh, who he fought alongside with, died of a heatstroke. In 1781, smallpox made an appearance into the scattered battles and massacres. Because of this disease, Jackson’s other brother, Robert, and his mother died. This made Andrew Jackson an orphan at the tender age of 15; it also hardened him as an individual. As he grew up, his other ventures would also be stained by his unemotional, yet power-driven traits.
Not wanting to migrate west because of the Upper Creeks, the Seminole tribe fought and killed to keep their roots planted. Eventually coming to the battle of the second Seminole war. After the loss of many men, the war ended and many Native Americans were sent to reservations in the west.

The tribes had lived in cabins and were in different sections. With the introduction of the white man, Cherokee had quickly adopted different ways of life from these people. The search for gold and other resources was the main driver for Cherokee displacement. Of historical note, the movement of the Cherokee people from west to east is known as the Trail of Tears. Many have lost their lives during this journey.

It all began in 1856 when Amos Kendall became the guardian of some blind and deaf children who were not properly cared for. He set up a school and house for them, and then Edward Gallaudet took on from there as the school superintendent. The next year, Congress permitted the school to start.
Robert Lindneux displayed the Native Americans looking deathly tired and weak during the Trail of Tears. There were many of them all ages moving by horse, wagon, or walking. This shows Robert Lindneux wants us to visualize the hardship that Native Americans were forced into. The painting was created after the Westward expansion showing that it was not a good idea. William Weatherford, in “Adventures Among Indians”, stated “...my people are all gone--I can do no more than weep over the misfortunes of my nation.
Thousands of Cherokees died on the journey to their destination due to harsh conditions, “whooping cough, typhus, dysentery, cholera and starvation”. Protection of territory was promised to them but later ended in 1907 when Oklahoma became a state. The Indian territories have completely disappeared.

Henri Coudreau once said “It is curious to note that tribes who become acculturated fastest also disappear quickest” (Plotkin 272). In Tales of a Shaman’s Apprentice, Mark J. Plotkin highlights the unfortunate exploitation of the indigenous peoples of the Amazon Rain Forest—the most coveted location for research and scientific discovery as well as the consequences of human intervention. In my essay, I will analyze the potential reasons behind the UNDRIP rejections from the United States and Australia as well explore the growing movement to gain rights for indigenous tribes in the last few decades. Throughout my research, I will discuss the impact of UNDRIP on the indigenous tribes themselves in addition to how their newfound rights will further

During the Lakota war chief crazy horse and chief sitting bull were fighting with him but he did not want to join them in the fight. So he fought by himself.
The antagonist, Pastor James Wilkins, is a miserable specimen of a man. He has spent most of his 54 years of life trying to get people to fit into his own idea belief of Christianity (Johnson, 2015). Pastor Wilkins, still sees people as either Christians or the devil. When he dances around the Midstate Church floor hardly breathing from the movement itself. His suit jacket is hardly meeting, because of the smoke pork dinners his lovely wife prepares for him on a nightly basis.
