Just like the battle of Washita which was a very bloody battle that was more of a slaughter than a battle. They destroyed native food supplies, lodging and even killed the natives horses. Ranald Mackenzie's slaughter of over 1000 native american ponies was considered overkill and a waste of resources. The Sioux, Cheyenne, and even the Arapahos pushed the northerners out of the Dakotas, but the rumors of gold in North Dakota cause the whites expansion to explode to the Dakotas. This caused the natives to be forced out of their home or killed.
For example, Document 14.2, Description of Custer’s Battlefield (1876) by General Philip Sheridan, talks about Custer’s battle against the Cheyenne and Sioux indians in Battle of Little Bighorn. The battle started when the U.S. army chose to ignore all previous treaties and invade the native American lands in search of gold. In response to the betrayal, the Sioux and Cheyenne indians joined forces and outnumbered Custer’s army. Nevertheless, choosing to ignore all previous treaties with Indians caused distrust between Americans and Natives Americans. The action of trying to constantly take land from the natives was a factor that led to the hostile relationship between the Americans and Natives.
Some of his soldiers were so despicable, they rode on the backs of the natives, like they were horses. Even worse, they beheaded children, for their own amusement. What did Columbus do? Nothing. As a leader, he never stopped his men from committing these crimes, but instead watched as the hundreds of thousands of natives committed suicide, yet, people still glorify his name.
I believe some Indians chose to react rather than give up their freedoms. Another reason rage increased was from the outsider’s unfaithful agreements. They proved to be ruthless and unrelenting. “From Yellow Wolf His Own Story” This story solidifies the malicious ways the outsiders used to solidify their unethical territorial domination. An ongoing battle broke out when Nez Perce Indians tried to escape the inevitable removal of their homes.
growing, prospering, and eventually going on to become the global superpower it is today. Like any other war, much of the damage and casualties resulted from civilian deaths when the raging armies swept through the colonies. The Loyalists- those who supported Great Britain and King George- and the Patriots- those who supported the principles of freedom and independence- alike were both hurt, killed, imprisoned, or otherwise dragged into the war, even when they did not join the army for either side. The Collier brothers use various instances of deaths throughout the storyline of My Brother Sam is Dead to show how the injustices and violences of war inherently manifest themselves. The irony of Jerry Sanford, Eliphalet Meeker, and Samuel Meeker’s deaths ultimately induce Tim to make the decision to remain neutral for the duration of the American Revolution.
White Americans loathed the Indians because they were “undeserving” of the fertile land they had. White settlers wanted this land so bad they burned down house and towns, stole animals and lived in land that didn’t belong to them. They tormented the native Americans for decades and then the state governments started passing laws to strip the Indians of their rights. In two separate cases, (Cherokee
He claims that Indians had had a negative experience with the Europeans even before the Pilgrims arrived. In fact, Indians attacked them with arrows that belonged to the other travelers from the Old World, notorious for ruining Indians’ homes and selling the locals into slavery. Another reason for the outrage of Indians were the diseases that they were not immune to. Smallpox, for example, killed a great part of the local population. Axtell then described how the natives joined and copied the whites’ way of life.
About 150 colonists were killed by Indians, but were the Indians really to blame (Fausz 63)? The colonists, in the eyes of the Indians, were stealing their land, killing their people, and taking their food. Although some Indians tried to make peace with the colonists, the colonists still felt threatened and started chopping their heads off. In the eyes of the colonists, the Indians were uncivilized savages. All they wanted was to be rich and have a better life.
But as The Europeans got more established on the continents and the Native American population plummeted from European diseases they found out that they were easy pray that could be easily supressed and dismantled from their homes. As the European claimed more land the Natives got angry. The Natives raided small settlements in attempts to scare off the Settlers but their attacks were pitiful compared to the retaliation. Large empires got dismantled by disease and technological superiority and the Natives were relocated westward. As USA Became independent they kept going claiming more land as they expanded westwards.
The Trail of Tears left by the Cherokee Indians “Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race.” -― Martin Luther King Jr The Trail of Tears helped the Manifest Destiny and Westward Expansion lead to the Civil War in many ways. The Trail of Tears caused more tension to rise in the United States. Native Americans became angry and lost trust in the American governmentbecause the settlers forced and physically moved them out of their homes. The Trail of Tears helps the Manifest Destiny because it is mainly the idea that moving west will bring more comfort and new riches to the settlers. This is major expansion westward.
Religion also played a critical part in the defeat of the Incas. The Spaniards’ thought of themselves as superior and when Atahualpa threw their “Book” on the ground, the religious Spaniards were deeply offended. They immediately started fighting and quickly overpowered the surprised Indians. 22. Diseases probably played the biggest role in the collapse of the Incan empire.
What caused him to hate indians so much was the Creek Wars. He had so much hostility towards them he caused the Indian Removal Act. He pushed this act onto the Senate and House of Reps. so much that they finally accepted it, but when it came to the to the supreme court they turned it down. Even though he was rejected by them, he told that he had an army, they didn’t and went ahead with the act. The tribes that were involved in this were the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and the Seminole.
The relations between the early settlers and the native Americans were sour from the start of American settlement. The main cause of this bitterness was that fact that the first settlers aka puritans only saw Indians as savages and that the Indians would be never be equal to them, and the start of this conflict was when puritans started seizing native American land for their own use illegally. and even though most native Americans didn 't like the settlers some tribes sided with the settlers in future wars to come. 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
Native Americans were seen as warlike savages that often fought with their European counterparts; however, the reality of Native Americans was that they lived a simplistic life and had a scare population within their tribes. Native Americans were viewed as warlike savages—namely, they invaded Europeans settlements in which were built on Native Americans land—however this is a stereotypical view and not the actual truth. Manifest Destiny led to these beliefs because of the Americans concept of expanding westward. According to a source, there was a plague that had killed 90% of Native Americans before Christopher Columbus arrived to North America. Native Americans populations already faced a drastic decline, with the Europeans diseases and expansion
With the first wave of Spanish colonization of the New World, many indigenous peoples were killed and their lands were seized and their way of life was destroyed (Tindall 26-27). When the Spanish showed up, they greatly overpowered indigenous peoples. They had iron, seafaring vessels, firearms, explosives, and swords, with indigenous peoples had copper, dugout canoes, arrows, and tomahawks (Tindall 27). This is immoral because the indigenous peoples would have no chance against the Spanish, and killing the indigenous people was senseless since they couldn’t fight back well anyway. When indigenous people were threatened by people in a village Columbus left behind, they attacked, killing ten people, only to lead to a retaliation that decimated their numbers (Tindall 21).
