The natives would have to voluntarily give their land to the White Americans without conflict. There was so such right or leniency for anyone, even the president, to forcefully take land. The president and the government ignored the letter of the law and took native land by force. The Choctaw nation was the first nation to be expelled from their land altogether, In the middle of winter, the people from the Choctaw were made to walk to the Indian Territory. The U.S. Army was on the verge of invading them.
The White Australian Policy is introduced to prevent individuals who weren’t white from entering Australia that draws upon the concepts of race and stereotype. The Stimulus (Creative Spirits, 2017), looks at a timeline that refers to the Indigenous Australians while the White Australian Policy was active and it shows how the Indigenous Australians were receiving policies that are able to protect them. The reason why I see this relevance to myself is the irony in that, how the Australian Government is only accepting white British settlers into Australia and wouldn’t allow those who distributed the race and stereotype of non-whites. Yet while this Policy is active the government assigns “Queensland Aboriginal Protection Act in 1904, The NSW Aborigines Protect Act in 1909” as stated in (Creative Spirits, 2017). It does not make sense in the ways the Government excludes one race and ethnicity and yet employs new laws and legislation to protect another.
The 1960 's was an extremely dull period for numerous individuals whose race was recognizably unique - different to that of the “white” population. Indigenous Australians, in many states, were denied full citizenship on grounds of their race. Migration laws were set up at every opportunity to support "white" European outsiders to Australia. However, gradual change in people’s perceptions began in the late 1960 's. Racism all through the 1960 's impacted the characters in the way that it improved certain qualities, and got the perusers to additionally comprehend the characters themselves, and in addition feel certain feelings towards them.
Another one of Robert Maine arguments was that Windshuttle claimed that the 20,000 deaths of the Aboriginals did not happened because it was not documented. Although Windshuttle argument of the Aboriginals being illiterate and not keeping any written records does not mean there history did not happen. ‘They responded to violence by the Aborigines towards white settlers cautiously and reluctantly, and their overriding concern was to prevent retaliatory violence by settlers and convicts from getting out of hand.’ That was one of Windshuttle argument that the only reason the white people killed Aboriginals was in retaliation, but all aboriginals on Tasmania were killed which is also know as a genocide. The white settlers were on a mission to kill
The Assimilation policy was a government policy designed to absorb Aboriginal people into white society through the process of forcibly removing children from their families. This government policy was not introduced until the 1950’s but was proposed through the belief that the Aboriginal people were allowed to “ die out,” through a process of natural elimination, or, where possible were able to assimilate into the white community. As a result, for the Aboriginal people assimilation meant the loss of their culture, beliefs, languages and most importantly their family as they were forced to adopt the white culture in Australia. The loss of cultural identity is a negative experience that was endured by many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders who were forcibly eliminated from their families under the policy of
Beyond the question of Jackson 's morality, what was the ultimate reason behind the removal? The answer to this is simple: white settlers wanted to grow and cultivate on Indian lands, and they attained this when the government pushed the natives out of their lands. This act, as stated before, led directly to the Trail of Tears. Many tribes were relocated and had to walk hundreds of miles, suffering from disease, exhaustion, and
“Deeply attached to their homeland and terrified by the difficulties earlier immigrants had encountered, many Cherokees made no preparation to leave (123).” They already had ceded most of their land yet they were still forced out of the last thing they had left, their home. Many have died and weren’t allow access to their traditional medicine because Americans denied their traditional practices, wanting them to be more “civilized”. Being held against their will, the US made their living situations unsurvivable and continued on doing so after they have reconstructed their society in the west. “Having taken the Cherokees’ land and forced them to march across a third of the continent, the United States now further threatened the Cherokees’ sovereignty and existence as a people (143).” As if taking their lives, nations, and spirits wasn’t enough, the government continued the unjust treatment on Indians after relocating. From the beginning to end, the government never kept their promises.
The U.S. expansion consequently harmed many Native Americans and caused many problems. The Native Americans were kicked out of their homes, were depleted of resources, or killed. According to the “Trail of Tears” painting context, “the Cherokee faced hunger, disease, and exhaustion. Over 4,000 died on the journey.” Robert Lindneux displayed the Native Americans looking deathly tired and weak during the Trail of Tears. There were many of them all ages moving by horse, wagon, or walking.
Cities such as Denver, San Fransisco, and Salt Lake City flourished. During the expansion of the West there was confrontation between the Whites and Native Americans. The white men believed that the removal of Native Americans was crucial to develop the America they imagined. To “Americanize” the Native Americans they were placed in a form of “concentration camps”. In these camps their hair was cut, not allowed to wear traditional dress, and they were not allowed to call one another by their Native names.
For example, traumatic events can have negative impacts on identity development and self concept formation. In Persepolis, Marji undergoes major trauma in many differing times in her life. She encounters many situations with death, gore, and restrictions
The three main reasons colonists died was environmental issues, lack of settler skills, and relations with the Powhatans. The biggest reason colonists died was because of settler skills. Most people that went to America were gentleman or didn’t have an occupation (Smith). This evidence shows that a lot of people did not have any skills to do anything. “English colonists dug shallow wells to supply themselves with sources of water” (Blanton).
He got the indian removal act passed by the government so he could try to get them to give up their homeland. He also got the some federal troops to take them from their homeland so they could have the land. Lastly, He got the western part of america and he had someone take them out of georgia and move them to oklahoma and many indians died. Andrew Jackson got the federal government to sign the indian removal act in 1830. The indian removal act
This paper called for abolishing the Indian Act. It aimed to end the federal responsibility for First Nations and termination of special status. (Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada, 2013). The White Paper also aimed at freeing the Indians and giving them opportunities to develop their cultures similar to other Canadians. The White Paper; however, drastically gained negative consequences from the First Nations, which made the government, withdraw it (AANDC, 2013).
