The Natives did not trust the English, so they were hesitant about trading. In August, 1609, “Of 120 men stationed near the falls, the Indians kill “neere halfe”.”(Fausz 63). The Natives attacked the English because they did not like how the English treated them. “Of 100 men at Nansemond, Indians kill 50”(Fausz 63). The colonists learned not to mess with the Native Americans after these
“Dazed with fear, Okonkwo drew his machete and cut him down. He was afraid of being thought weak” (Achebe 61). His culture expects all men to never show weakness, therefore negatively influencing Okonkwo. Okonkwo uses what his culture taught him throughout the book, even when the white settlers appear. He is disappointed when he realizes that his clan no longer wants to fight the men out of their clan, and rather leave them be.
Cold, stone, rigid walls. A gray blotch of “food” that no one can recognize. Persistent abuse from those who are supposed to aid the mentally disturbed. This is what Lennie Small’s life would have been like if George didn’t shoot him: constant suffering. That is exactly what George didn’t want for Lennie, so he shot him.
Yet spaniards had completely overlooked this and slaughtered, tortured, and ravished the natives into submission without the need for it. “Whom they so despicably contemned, that they treated them… not as beasts… but as the most abject dung and filth of the earth.” Las Casas was obviously more than discontent with the debasement of
Dear President Jackson, I believe we have a huge situation regarding the unfair, cruel, and horrible treatment and removal of Native Americans. Why are we violating these American citizens’ rights when they were born here to begin with? These civilized people were minding their own business until you came in and tried to interfere despite the court ruling in favor of the Native Americans. You should be impeached for that mischievous plan. All you care about is the fertile land that these Native Americans lived in; you didn’t care where you would put these Native Americans so you put them in Indian Territory which is dry and not a great place to live since nothing can be grown.
The Cherokees suffered illness and the death of their beloved ones, they were tired, but had to keep moving, forced by the soldiers. The act was cruel and inhumane, and the forced movement of the Cherokees was not a correct action taken at that point in history. It was unfair for the Cherokees, because the general was not willing to move. It violated the Cherokee’s rights, caused a great number of casualties, and violated the constitution. The action should not have been taken by Americans at that point of time, and it shouldn’t be done by any religion or nation and any time.
Perceptions of Native Americans 1. The French did not know what is tobacco; and they could not speak to the Indians. On the other hand, the Indians never used axes, knives, or guns, and were scared of them. The Europeans and Native Americans traded furs but European disease affected a lot. Europeans were eager with furs and the Indians derided them, an example was that the they gave the Indians 20 beautiful knives to exchange a Beaver skin.
Because the Britishers were busy with war, they were also not able to look into the conditions of Indians, leading to failure of crops, spread of epidemic diseases and death of many. Not surprisingly, this angered Indians and they needed some way to express their anger. The arrival of Mahatma Gandhi and his ideals gave them the ideal opportunity to do so. Gandhi claimed that “the real enemies were
These stereotypes negatively affected them to not be taken seriously and were often made to live away from white settlers. If, they ever tried to fight back they were called monsters, the Natives were often treated like second class citizens in their own home. Next, when the settlers wanted land from the Natives, they would set up treaties and trade agreements, and if things didn’t go as planned they would ignore the treaty and take what they wanted by force. Eventually, they began kicking the Native people out of their home and they were forced to stay on reservations that lack the resources needed to survive . Approximately, 90% of Native Americans population passed away from disease in
The resettlement does not bring anything but untold human misery. The people face cultural disruption and social alienation. Protests never help in such cases because the government won’t listen to the people. The resettlement will go ahead whatever happened, and if their help
