In other words, Bacon is saying that Berkeley violated his power and, as a result, lost a vast amount of his colony. In addition, Berkeley lost a great amount of his colony because he protected the Indian land, limiting many settlers the opportunity to obtain land and their liberty. Liberty during 1676 meant owning land and is why Bacon fought for their opportunity to obtain

This meant the Chesapeake Bay colonies could not grow cash crops. Instead, they would have family farms where they would only grow food for themselves. Their religion also helped shape the colony. The Pilgrims had left England because they believed the Anglican Church was corrupted, and it contained too many Roman Catholic beliefs. The Pilgrims were also religiously intolerant of other religions, and believed that theirs were the correct religion.
When the Mission was under control of Friar Fray Peyri, the natives were forced into working and doing the strenuous activities that they did not sign up for. Mission San Luis Rey is noted to be the mission to have the most convert or neophytes, but it is not listed as to how many voluntarily converted or were forced to for labor (California Missions Resource Center). As seen in our textbook, many natives were forced to convert by soldiers and other threats. Though not noted through the website, the natives in the southern regions of California were far more hostile towards the missions than the others. In the previous years before the Mission San Luis Rey was even founded as an official mission, the destruction of the San Diego Mission occurred due to the native uprising against the Spanish forces invading their land.
Illnesses, death, dangerous animals, severe storms that destroyed crops, droughts, and bad harvests were just some of the hardships that pioneers had to brave through. For immigrants migrating from foreign countries, the move was even more difficult. They not only came to a land where they do not know the native language, they also had to become acquainted with customs that they were unfamiliar with, such as how to farm the land and how to survive on very little. When they first moved to the mid-west, many immigrants had nothing but a small, inconvenient sod house to live in. Immigrants that decided to migrate to the mid-west from eastern America may have determined to do so because of religious reasons or to get a better opportunity to provide for their family.
Around the time when America was discovered, there were many critical changes in Europe. Here were some factors that caused England to become slow in exploration and colonization. First, English people had a very little experience in overseas trading. In addition, hearing that there was a bad relationship between the American Indians and the Spaniards also discouraged their interests. Second, there were many religious disputes and reformations during that period, which caused many conflicts between the protestants and the Catholics.
They didn’t just want the land; they expected the natives to give it to them and leave their homes behind with nowhere to go. The Indians worked hard to make a home for themselves there. They had built houses and organized their way of life the way they wanted it to be. The Puritans could have traveled to a place uninhabited by natives so they could have avoided the unnecessary intrusion. Nevertheless, the Puritans arrived and carelessly intruded without any invitation whatsoever.
“Native American Timeline of Events.” Legends of America, Mar. 2017, www.legendsofamerica.com/na-timeline.html. Kathy Weiser’s timeline helps to conceptualize the extent of forced migration and the cause and effect relationships between wars, laws, and removals. Her history includes information on the Indian Removal Act, the Trail of Tears, the Indian Indenture Act, the Homestead Act, the Navajo Wars, the Sioux Uprising, etc. The Indian Removal Act of 1830 forced the Cherokee, Choctaw, Creek, Chickasaw, and Seminole to walk the 1,200 mile “Trail of Tears.” Other forced removals included the Navajo Long Walk and the Sioux Walk to Fort Snelling.

The romantic concept of the “Noble Savage” was mainly embraced by those that did have direct contact with the Native Americans. Those who interacted with them continually saw them as inferior and lacking of common rights. Unfortunately due to these many misconceptions and personal outlooks that took place in early America contributed to the English attitudes towards the Native Americans escalating to further negativity and conflict. This can be reflected in the general stereotypes that some believe are attributed to Native Americans such as “Indian Princess” or “Speak Indian”. It has however, undergone through dramatic changes depending on the current relationships between the two cultures and thus has greatly influenced literature not only on the English side but the Native American side as
