On the list, there were some men without known jobs. A few off the unknown men may have known a little about farming, but most likely not enough. Droughts were also a problem. From “The Lost Colony and Jamestown Droughts,” the charts show that the drought lasted from “1605-1612.” With a drought that long, crops didn’t grow and colonists died from hunger and thirst. Eventually, the colonists did get food when they traded with the Indians.
Straight off he claims, “From the fact that the Indians are barbarians it does not necessarily follow that they are incapable of government and have to be ruled by others, except that they have to be taught about the catholic faith and to be admitted to the holy sacraments. They are not ignorant, inhuman, or bestial.” (pg.3 paragraph 1) De La Casa acknowledged that, while their practices were less evolved than the Spanish, it did not mean they were any less human or developed than the Spanish, and only need a guiding hand to the Catholic faith. He described how the Spanish treated the natives like dogs, forcing them to mine for precious minerals, and compared the Conquistadors to Romans. He wrote an argument defending the natives, explaining they were not any less intelligent then the Spanish and “…they are so skilled in every mechanical art…” (pg. 4 paragraph 2) going on to say how they should be considered more advanced, or at least on par, with the rest of the

Throughout the course of history, important events litter the ground as such common knowledge that the true power of such events becomes masked. So many years deemed crucial to the development of mankind have been written about to the point of deterioration of the stature of the events contained within said years. The unsung heroes, however, are brushed aside as a moot point in the history of the world. 1949 carries one such tune, with events that not only altered history at that point in time, but continue to impact the world today. Harry Truman and the policies he introduced in 1949 continue to shape our social and political worlds.

There’s a difference between being ignorant and being intelligent, Chris was staying put on that line. He fell to either side every now and then, for example: burning his money was ignorant. He should have known better to leave with a plan more thought out than “Get to Alaska.” Man vs. Wild’s Bear Grylls, Survivorman Les Stroud, and Man, Woman, Wild’s Mykel and Ruth Hawke are all people who appreciate how fascinating nature can be as well as how great it is to be out in the wilderness away from civilization, but they also understand that they cannot go out ill prepared. Not only did they leave their life with materials that could protect them, nourish them, and help them stay alive, but they studied up on the possible problems they could face both major and very minor. From the beginning of his childhood Grylls was
The two options that Jackson delivers are that the Indians can either be broken down or forced from their land. How is this coherent? How is it humane to make a group of people flee from their land? Jackson makes it seem as if he can not do anything to solve the situation. When in all reality he can defend the
He asked for “an even chance to live as other men live,” and “to be recognized as men.” Joseph promised that “whenever the white man treats the Indian as they treat each other, then we will have no more wars” (Chief Young Joseph). His plea fell on deaf ears, however, and the Nez Perce dwindled to nothingness. The United States history is marred by many heinous acts. One of the worst is the scar left by the treatment of Native Americans, forcibly moved across country. Americans must learn of this history to ensure that no race is ever so mistreated again.

Racism prevented any Indian, no matter how assimilated, from being truly accepted and equal in the eyes of the American population. In the end, assimilation was had more than just one motive. Assimilation would develop into the breaking up of tribes, and the American government would benefit greatly by taking the land that had previously been granted as reservation space.
