This made them create the law that to pass any amendments, or to change any, it needed to have 2/3 of congress to vote on it and 3/4 of the states approval, unlike when they had the articles of confederation. The Articles of Confederation had to have all the states agree on an amendment. The only problem with this was that the states had different opinions and views, which resulted in nothing changing.
“Aztlan, Cibola and Frontier New Spain” is a chapter in Between the Conquests written by John R. Chavez.

In reality, Christopher Columbus had an incredibly negative impact on the world because he enslaved the Native Americans, didn’t help the kind Natives when they got infected by diseases that the Spaniards had brought to America, and killed off most of the Native American population. The tactics he chose to use were violent and destructive by the standards back then and now. First, Columbus treated the Native Americans like uncivilized people by enslaving them and forcing them to work for him although they greeted him and his crew peacefully. ” They could make fine servants,”(document 2) he wrote in his journal,”I took them by force.
This led to small militia's of the colonist fighting back. Their strategy was to raid and stop Yamasee raid. It took two long years, but the war ended.

On this trail, 16,000 cherokees walked through one of the hardest winters in American history, and only 12,000 survived. Many people blame this on Andrew Jackson, but it was not Andrew which killed them, it was the winter. The US even bought the land before, so the Indians shouldn’t have been there anyway.
The Indians were outnumbered by the every growing population of Americans trying to take their land. Unfortunate to the Native Americans, the settlers began forcing them into Reservations and stealing their land. Many Indians were slaughtered unnecessarily, even peaceful Indians that were not waging war. It was a difficult time for the Indians even after the Great Sioux War that they had won. They celebrated by continuing their hunting but not long after they were compelled to stop hunting, relinquish their goldfields and go onto a reservation.
During the 17th century, the Black Slavery is the biggest and the most controversial issues in the European world. It has a big influence to the existing economic, political and social order.

If their blood quantum is at a certain level, they are able to receive benefits and services from the government (Wilkins). The fact that they have to measure out their ancestry and what fraction of what ethnicity they are, is something that no other racial group has to do anymore. In the Supreme Court case Cherokee v.

Although they were working out the issues, the colonists had some democratic features that were set and working. The rule of law describes that no person is above the supreme law. Everyone must obey laws; there is no supreme leader that can do anything they want.
