In Voltaire’s Candide there is an evident imbalance of powers between men and women. Regardless of it taking place in the 18th century, the depiction of women are illustrated as powerful only when she ranks behind, or by the side, of a man with true power.

The white government has made inumerous attempts to try to assimilate them into the US mainstream population. The effects felt by the Indian reservations due to the negative consequences of white actions are unimaginably devastating. Native Americans have to rely on the government in order to survive, and sometimes that 's still not enough.

Intrusive Acts on Early North America The Chickasaw and Choctaw tribes were typically considered as enemies throughout most of the 17th and 18th centuries. Thrown into continuous, brutal warfare by their varying European allies, the two tribes shared something in common: the lives of their own tribes were continuously jeopardized by the settlement of the “new coming” Europeans.
