In California he supported Congress on the Socialist ticket, the senate, and ran for governor. When the Great Depression reached California he formed a set of general propositions that he named EPIC which stood for Plan to End Poverty in California. This plan arranged to start up factories to benefit unemployed workers and this plan also made land available for farmers to use. Then these goods and services would be divided through a system of businesses. This plan gave $50 a month to people in need that were over sixty, disabled, or single mothers with children.
1William Cronon’s Changes in the Land: Indians, Colonists, and the Ecology of New England observes the changes of New England caused by the Indians and European settlers. In Cronon’s thesis he states, “the shift from Indian to European dominance in New England entailed important changes—well known to historians—in the ways these peoples organized their lives, but it also involved fundamental reorganizations—less well known to historians—in the region’s plant and animal communities” (Cronon xv). When colonist from Europe ventured to North America, the ecosystem would gradually change as of consequence. Cronon highlights not only the ecological changes caused by colonization but also the native’s practices that affected the environment. 2The economic and environmental value of New England was obvious and to the Europeans.
The president during the enforcement of the Indian removal act, Andrew Jackson, thought that the indigenous people were less civilized and moral than the settlers, although many of the tribes had adapted to the European lifestyle. He did not believe that the more “civilized” people should live alongside the indigenous people. When congress passed the Indian removal act in 1830 that stated that it was legal to force indigenous people off of their land, he fully enforced it, pushing tribes west. When there was an auction of Cherokee land, he claimed he couldn 't do anything to stop it, but he didn 't truly want to. The indigenous people wanted to coexist in peace, as Red Jacket stated, “‘You have got our country but are not satisfied; you want to force your religion upon us….
The characteristics of the modern Northwest Coast tribes that struck me the most was the lifestyle that they live in reservations. There is really no difference between reservations large or small even though some reservations might have more resources then the other there is still vale of darkness over these reservations. The American government had begun to declare specific pieces of land located in the West as Native reservation in the 1850s and 1860s. The main reasons were to open up more land for settlers that were headed to the west and to distinguish and keep peace between these settlers and Indians. Most reservations were large but not big enough didn’t compare to the land that Native were use to.
1. History and myth is an important part of any culture. History is a study of events that have already occurred and is comprised of stories from first-hand experiences. Myth is connected to history as it speaks to the stories and ideas passed down over time that are not true but widely believed by people. This paper will link myth and history together concerning Mount McKinley, more recently named Mount Denali located in the Alaskan mountain range.
Hunters and collectors in tribes used to form organizations through highly royal and clerical power structures to industrial structures and today 's post-industrial structures. Classical Organization Theory (David S. Walonick Ph.D., 1993) explained that “the Classical organization theory evolved during the first half of the 20th century. It represents merger of scientific management, bureaucratic theory, and administrative theory.” Back to the beginning of the 20th century, the scientific management theory was developed by Frederick Taylor (1917) (often called "Taylorism"). His theory had four basic principles: 1) Find the one "best way" to perform each task, 2)
The Great Land Rush and the making of the Modern world, 1690-1900, written by John C. Weaver, discusses the distribution of land, its changing process, and the introduction of property rights in a market economy throughout various parts of the world – North America, South Africa New Zealand, and Australia among others. This essay will discuss the definition of property right, how it was implemented by the settlers onto new territories and the development there after. Through the analysis of Weavers dissertations, the essay will also draw similarities and difference of the way various colonial government treated indigenous people and other settlers; along with how settlers treated aboriginals and one another. The book takes into consideration how the Neo-Europeans gained and distributed land that they discovered.5 The process of how a land comes into ownership and the legislation around it is called property rights.5 Property rights where developed after it was realized that Neo-Europeans where excessively violent with natives over their land.5 Europeans would discover new lands and would use their native beliefs, and legislation as a tactic to gain control of the niche.5 this would harm the native people of that land as these practices of land taking where violent between settlers and natives.5 The settlers used property rights within their own people but had aggressive beliefs with the natives that resulted in gruesome wars between the two parties for the land.
The United States federal government made the Japanese go into concentration camps during the early 1900’s because officials believed that they were going to betray the American population. Officials believed that they should take precautions towards protecting themselves because the Japanese were thought of to be as drastically inferior. Despite their efforts towards keeping “true Americans” safe they did not find any evidence that proved Japanese Americans were scheming against the United States. 2b. Many Japanese Americans lost their businesses and homes due to the betrayal of their home country.
So, he travelled to Tadoussac to set up a new trading post. Champlain knew that the success of the fur trade depended on keeping a friendly relationship with the Aboriginal peoples. The French didn’t have the knowledge that the Aboriginals did, and he knew without them they would have nothing. The Europeans didn’t know how to navigate and survive in the wilderness. They also didn’t have any knowledge of preserving foods and making medicine to cure their people, and Champlain saw this as a bit of a threat.
The French was looking to populate their Newfoundland but most didn’t want to settle or colonies there because of the laws, rules where unpredictable. If they did colonize it was rewarded by allowing those French who did to have proceeds from some of the post that traded fur.

When King Louis XIV came into power of New France in 1663 he managed to be successful but could not obtain wealth or growth like New Spain and the British
The main message about the culture that was portrayed in the book titled Ceremony was about the persistence of Native American culture to evolve the ceremony traditions in order to adapt to the changing environment and heal Tayo’s illness from the World War II. This was demonstrated by Ku’oosh, who was a medicine man, discovers that he can no longer cure Tayo of his sickness due to only his knowledge in traditional ceremony practices. He then sends Tayo to another medicine man known as Betonie, who can cure him of his sickness due to his ability to adapt and modify a ceremony tradition to meet the demands of Tayo’s new generation. However, Tayo learns that the ceremony can only be completed once he was able to encompass elements of the Native
Introduction “Health characterized by Ralph Waldo Emerson is the, “complete mental, social, and physical well-being, and not just the absence of disease or infirmity.” American Indians/Alaska Natives (AI/AN) are a diverse group of people who have overcome a lot to get to where they are today.
