They then noticed something brown on the gully bed. First they thought it was just rubbish, but when they looked closer they noticed that it was a humans body. Death And Theories There are many theories on how Otzi died. The most suitable one would be the theory that he was a hunter and lived in a village, but how did he get to the mountains. In a documentary called ‘The Iceman’s Murder’ it says that there was a murderer in the village he lived in, so he fled.
Stannard addresses this as the “‘invisible’ population loss,” because the settlers would have had no idea that these people had even died, since they hadn’t even reached that specific land yet [Stannard 268]. Furthermore, before the Spanish reached the pueblos in the southwest, the pueblo population could have been depleted due to epidemics [Upham 227-228]. The invisible population loss is what is still widely debated today as there is no way for researchers to know for sure exactly how many natives died. Nonetheless, Upham and Stannard both supply compelling evidence suggesting that this did happen, which severely depleted the populations prior to contact with Europeans in the New
At this point in the mid 1880’s the native/American wars were basically over due to the calvary advantages. The calvary went on what some people called an extinction event and told all the tribes in America that they would either be sent to reservations or be killed. The bad thing of these battles and wars is that the number of noncombatants that were killed. There were more women and children that were killed on both sides than there were of actual combatants. This is sad because the women and children shouldn’t have been a part of this war yet they were in it more than the fighters
If he ran in there to hide, it may have been someone he knew that wanted him dead, because Joseph was killed there in the storm drain tunnel, he was not killed somewhere else and dumped there. However, why would he go through the tunnels? Was it a short cut to get home? Was he hanging with friends in the tunnel? There are many question unanswered with little bit of
They were forced to leave their homes to move somewhere they did not know about. Also how badly they were treated and the war against one another unlike the Jews the Native Americans were not put in death camps but they were placed somewhere they had no idea about that area so in rebellion of not accepting this forced change the Native Americans decided to fight back against the Americans to get their ways and land back to the way it was before. During the war against Americans the Native Americans did lose a lot of lived like mother’s, children, men, women, people just in general who had loved one same as the
This all happened in the Southwest. When the settlers went to Rio Grande Valley, many of them had given up and return to Mexico (Jones, pg. 28). In their desperation to find new land, they took their frustration on the native people. The Spanish soldiers would take robes from women and children in the winter.
Had one not given his or her tribute, which was either one hawk’s bell of gold or 25 pounds of cotton, he or she would have his/her hands cut off and they were left for dead. These rules put in place by Columbus inspired the Taíno people to revolt. These revolts were sometimes successful, sometimes not. In the Taíno rebellion of 1511, Agueybana II, nephew of former Taíno cacique (chief) Agueybana, had doubted the Spaniards as gods (a belief they had since the Spaniard arrivals), so he lured a Spaniard named Diego Salcedo to the bank of a river and drowned him. This approved Agueybana’s beliefs, and essentially waged war against the Spaniards.
Woolly mammoths (Mammuthus primigenius) have been extinct for a very long time, with the last of the species dying out about 3,600 years ago. But researchers say it may be possible to bring these and other extinct species back from the grave. There is significant controversy and critics over the idea of bring back to life and assert that efforts would be better spent conserving existing or endangered species. Critics of resurrection say reviving extinct animal could do more harm to conservation efforts than good. As for me, I would be disagreeing with the idea proposed.
Why I think Chris McCandless is Stupid Into the Wild, a book by Jon Krauker and a film by Sean Penn is a story about Chris McCandless, the son of wealthy parents who graduated from Wilbert Tucker Woodson High School and Emory University. His family expected too much from him and it is possible that one of the many reasons he abandons everything was because of his parents. If I was him I would have moved to a new city, remain distant from family, and start a career instead of going to the wilderness only to die. He didn’t tell his parents of his actions and that’s stupid. Even if he hated them, he should of told them because his parents were worried and they wanted him to succeed.
So what was the point of the war if in the end he was murder and they ended up losing everything. It doesn’t make sense why they killed, because someone didn’t want to be Christian. Maybe they had their own religion. So to me it looks like the war was for nothing because even nowadays they are many different religions out there and everyone has their own opinion about religions. I do see even now if you’re not a Christian you get treated differently.
This treaty which was signed as a show of friendship between the two races, and would pose to haunt the Duwamish people in the coming years. This was a key event to the downfall of the Duwamish tribe and it’s implications are discussed below. The first implication that will be examined is the fact that the treaty had promised the Duwamish people that they would receive a reservation from the United States government, which was not fulfilled. The Duwamish people, like other Native tribes, had lived on the same land for generations. However, due to the violence that the European settlers brought to their people, some decided that they would rather leave their homes and join other neighbouring tribes, than than suffer.
The nearby Indian tribe was the Croatan 's that lived on Croatan Island, but were known to be friendly. John White 's plan was to go to the island to look for them. Then sudden storm passes through damaging his ship, preventing the search, and forcing him to return to England for repairs on his ship. White died in 1593, three years after the discovery of the lost colony, and never knowing what happened. Today evidence has been found on a map of John White 's painting 's, raising some suspicion on what really happened to the lost colony researchers have developed all possible scenarios for what might have happened.
THE LOST COLONY OF ROANOKE There are many theories for the lost colony of Roanoke, but no one knows where they went or what they did.Many have wondered but this is what i learned. Sir Walter Raleigh was one of the first to ask to for a colony in america. He wanted to go to Roanoke. The queen let him travel.When he got there local indians helped them.But a while after they killed the indian chief.Which made it unsafe for them so they left. Their second attempt they asked John white to lead them.When they arrived it was harsh they were running out of supplies so John White said I will go back and get supplies he said “if you are in trouble then draw a cross and if you move write were.So he traveld back to get supplies but his
There are a lot of stories about the lost colony of Roanoke and how the colonists that lived there disappeared. Some say they starved to death and some say the indians might have come and attacked them. Personally I think that the colonists left due to their lack of resources. There is some evidence supporting my hypothesis but also there is a lot that contradicts it. The colony of Roanoke consisted about one hundred and seven people.
