Madison can rightly be regarded as the principal framer of the Bill of Rights which the First Federal Congress submitted to the states in 1789. Many congressmen felt that he was acting with excessive movement in calling for quick action on the subject of amendments. If Madison did not pressed the congressmen to consider the amendments he had introduced early in the session, then the Bill of Rights might never have been added to the Constitution.

The Ottawas slowly became involved with the American government as they signed more and more treaties. “March 28th, 1836, a treaty was signed at Washington, not with the free will of the Indians, but by compulsion” (Blackbird 23). From this statement it can be assumed that Blackbird is not happy with how the Indians are treated even though they are Americans themselves. Blackbird also describes in his book the intermingling of white culture into his tribe through weapons, liquor, and language.
