The Whiteclay Conspiracy One course, offered at Nebraska Wesleyan University, is Women’s Global Health. In taking this course, one of the required activities involved watching the documentary, “The Battle for Whiteclay.” The responses from fellow classmates were coherent in the fact that most had never heard of Whiteclay, Nebraska nor the plight of the Oglala Lakota Sioux tribe members living just to the north on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. The images of Native Americans intoxicated and slumped over on sidewalks and against the various liquor establishments located within Whiteclay was deplorable.
A nation is not conquered until the hearts of its women are on the ground. Then it is done. No matter how brave its warriors or how strong its weapons.- Cheyenne Proverb. In “Round House” this quote was fitting because the sexual assault on the mother nearly destroyed her and the family.

Discussion: Native Americans have numerous of tribes across the United States.
Positive rights as Native Americans, I would personally say they weren 't very many. Now the country has indeed equaled out a lot of the problems from back then. The bad thing about having your citizenship is that they simply will never have the lands they once owned back. Having their residency in the United States in my own way of thinking was just a cover up for all the damage they have done. If you look at the current days some Native American Indian tribes get food stamps and some type of income from casinos.
There is no doubt that the history between Native Americans and the government is one not to be proud of. It also goes to show that the United States never sat down and asked Native Americans what they wanted; if communication was conducted there would have been little conflict between the two. This overall theme is apparent in the 19th Century policy of Indian Removal and 20th Century’s Relocation and Termination policies. The main goal of the 19th Century policy of Indian Removal was to remove Native Americans from what was thought to be desired land. These policies were allowed to happen due to Native Americans being thought of as less than human.

Introduction Approximately, about thousand years ago, in the late ice age, the Native Americans journey across the Bering land bridge from Asia to Alaska. The Natives explore along the West coast of North America. Likewise, as early as 1000 BC, they discovered virtually the entire continent. According to the Scholastic (2016), it’s not known when the first Americans settle the continent. Nonetheless, in 1942 Columbus's discovered the “New World” what is now known as the United State of America.
Native Americans were the first people in North America. They had many tribes on every region. They also had different lifestyles depending on where they settled. The region most fitted for me is the Great Plains. The Great Plains have vast grasslands, abundant herds of buffalo, mountains, rivers, and streams which seems like a great place to live, hence the name.
Native Americans are known to be the nation's invisible minority and it is extremely disturbing in our American society. Native Americans have a hard time finding an identity and voice in our nation, and there is little attention given to them. This is ironic because Native Americans were the first people to live in the American continents. The Europeans came to America and burned down their villages and lands and tried to enslave them. Millions of Native American were killed by Europeans.
