They had temporary owners, who were not interested in preserving their lives and health after the expiry of the contract. At any attempt to escape they were subjected to the most ferocious punishments, down to the death penalty. At the end of the contract period, which was usually during seven years, servants received clothes, a musket, and a little money. By the year 1610 in Virginia were brought about 500 settlers. But later, by the spring of that year, only 60 of them had survived.
Why Lakota Language Is Dying A significant epidemic of smallpox destroyed more than half of Lakota tribes between 1722 and 1780 (Irvine & Gal, 2008). For this reason, the language speakers were greatly reduced. Another reason for the dying of the language is a series of warfare between the Lakota bands and the U.S. Army which also reduced their numbers. In 1877, they were forced to sign a treaty that ceded Black Hills to US and since then, they have been confined into Western South reservations of Dakota (Irvine & Gal, 2008). Influence by American culture has also played a big role to reducing the frequency with which Lakota language is spoken.
This is because people were praying to God for years and no one got better and the plague kept spreading. Church authority dwindled and it was probably a factor that lead to so many HRE trying to either eclipse the church in influence or take over areas that simple were not up for grabs. However it could have had a long term benefit for Europe, skip ahead to Columbus time and you would see that Europe was running out of land to feed people. Since the plague killed so many people the future population was also decreased. If there were more people in Europe around 1492 we could see that the entire European landscape had been completely deforested and the wildlife killed out, people would be starving and an overall sense of urgency on finding new resources might have pushed for a sooner colonization of
Back in the days people were not educated, so diseases such as tuberculosis whippet out entire tribes. White settlers became to take Indian land for themselves. Many tribes resisted and fought back for what they had while others tempted to corporate. Over the next century native
The plague had taken a toll onto the population as it continued to fall until slowing down by 1352. As Molly Edmonds states, “ the workforce had been destroyed -- farms were abandoned and buildings crumbled”. This helps to prove that there was a major loss of population by telling of how there wasn’t enough people to even keep the building stable. The medical response to the plague was very little due to them not knowing much about the epidemic at the time. They had observed that people who were around the sick had often became sick also (Calliope).
There was no war that ever did the same amount of slain. Because of the day and age it is hard for historians to make reliable and reasonable population figures, but it is almost sure that between a quarter and a third of the European population died because of the Black Death (20 million people more or less). One example is Paris where because of this plague about half of the population died (“Man and Disease: The Black Death”). The Black Death also had a really big impact to the people that did not die. Flagellants were born, the flagellants were professional self-tortures would whip themselves for a fee to bring God's favor hoping to stop the plague.

As teachers become ill and unable to work, some schools are closing. Health services - since the beginning of the epidemic, 21.8 million people have fallen sick and died of AIDS, placing ever-increasing demands on health services in the worst-affected countries. HIV-positive people lack access to medicines and to health care, often facing discrimination from hospital staff or health-care systems. Orphans - AIDS has a dramatic impact on children, particularly through the emergence of an entire generation of orphans to families affected by HIV. To date, the epidemic has left behind 13.2 million orphans, children who before the age of 15 have lost either their mother or both parents to AIDS.
