White Americans loathed the Indians because they were “undeserving” of the fertile land they had. White settlers wanted this land so bad they burned down house and towns, stole animals and lived in land that didn’t belong to them. They tormented the native Americans for decades and then the state governments started passing laws to strip the Indians of their rights. In two separate cases, (Cherokee
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
These stereotypes negatively affected them to not be taken seriously and were often made to live away from white settlers. If, they ever tried to fight back they were called monsters, the Natives were often treated like second class citizens in their own home. Next, when the settlers wanted land from the Natives, they would set up treaties and trade agreements, and if things didn’t go as planned they would ignore the treaty and take what they wanted by force. Eventually, they began kicking the Native people out of their home and they were forced to stay on reservations that lack the resources needed to survive . Approximately, 90% of Native Americans population passed away from disease in
In this treaty, he took the word of several unelected people of the Cherokee Nation as an agreement on behalf of all of them, because it fit his desires. This treaty broke all former promises to Native Americans that they would be able to stay on what little land they had left. Consequently, they were marched 800 miles across harsh terrain in horrible conditions, dying by the thousands, despite promises that the trek would be made safe. This journey would come to be known as The Trail of Tears. As a result, Native Americans no longer had access to their hunting grounds, their sacred spaces, or the land they were familiar with.
Houses and fields were left unattended during the trials, and crop failure was a result of the neglect. Salems Politics were also affected, the Salem Village committee was replaced with an anti-Parris committee. Parris tried to make peace and save his job but didn't do very well and agreed to leave the town. After the trials many of the townspeople didn't get along with the ones who accused their friends or family. These trials shook the town of Salem, they even changed the name of the town after that to Danvers because of how guilty
Code Talker by Joseph Bruchac is a book centered around the Navajo Indians in WWII. The Navajos were forced to live on reservations, their only option to further their education and broaden their opportunities were to leave the tribe or to join the military. Caucasian Americans at the time were very stereotypical towards the Navajos, they believed they were drunk, uneducated, wild savages. Caucasian Americans were guilty of only hearing a single story of how their ancestors took the land from the Indians who weren't deserving of it. Non Indians believed they rightfully used the land and saved it from wild savages destroying the land.
They did not have enough money or want to spend extra money to provide proper facilities to children. Poor-ventilation: this occurred due to tuberculosis (which occurred due to malnutrition) Lack of food: The children were not fed properly. Lack of clothing: Children were not provided appropriate clothing, but summer clothes during the winter which caused them to freeze to death No fire exits: many children died due to this. Since the schools refused to spend money on fire escapes and sprinklers they built poles outside the windows. During the fire the windows are locked and many children were not able to reach it in time.
In 1830, the Indian Removal Act was signed, forcing the Indians to move west of the Mississippi River. 4,000 of the 15,000 Cherokees died along the trail of tears, meaning over 25% of the Cherokees died. Although they did not want to leave their land, they had to because of President Jackson. The Indians should not have been forced off their land. President Jackson did not treat the Indians fairly, the land belonged to the Indians, and the Indians rights were being violated.
Andrew Jackson disobeyed a direct order from the Supreme Court, which it means he was above the law. I really wonder how Americans tolerated him, at that time, he was cruel to the Indian common man. Because of him, the Native Americans have the worst end of the Trail of Tears. They are the ones who are forced out of their traditional homes and sent away on a journey of pain and death. Those who had fallen ill, most of the time died, and those who had the will to move on were able to make it to the end and start new lives.
These battles lead the Native Americans to lose their land, homes, and move onto reserves. The map on Document 8 shows the decreasing lands for the Native American tribes. Because of the restrictions put on the Indians, they could not go in certain places to hunt. That includes the buffalo, the settlers however did end up killing a major portion of the population of the buffalo, for meat and fur. Document 6 shows a graph on the declining population of the
The United States went against their own rights, they took away property from the natives, because they needed to expand, without even conversing with them. The government of the United States failed the Native American population during the 1800s century. The Native Americans were treated badly. They lived in reservations and small homes. There were a lot of poverty.
Her mother could not even pay to his son the travel to see his dead father. The condition of the road and the lack of infrastructure show as well the insufficiency of the natives. The fear of white people who take their land is still there. For instance Victor and Thomas fear the two men who took their place on the bus as well as the sheriff who accuse them of creating an accident. However, in all this troublesome that the natives have today, we also notice some pattern unique to the native.
He caused the death of hundreds of Indians. The Indian Removal Act was put in place to get land from the Indians to expand America. Courts told Jackson that he couldn 't take the Indians land. While the law was passed by congress. Andrew Jackson didn 't care he forced them walk to new land and hundreds of Indians died which was the Trail of Tears.
Imagine having to walk over 1200 miles because someone else wants you land. In 1820 five Native American tribes the Chickasaw, Choctaw, Seminole, Cherokee, and Creek Indians were invaded by all of the white people who came to the U.S from Europe, and the white men got very settled. Ever since the white men showed up to the U.S. there was conflict with the Native Americans. The Indian Removal Act is when southern Indian tribes formed their removal of the Natives and forced them to leave all of there stuff. I believe that the Indian Removal Act is a step in the wrong direction because we were not treating the Native Americans like human beings, it went against the constitution, and jackson wanted to build a wall to separate.
Dear President Jackson, I believe we have a huge situation regarding the unfair, cruel, and horrible treatment and removal of Native Americans. Why are we violating these American citizens’ rights when they were born here to begin with? These civilized people were minding their own business until you came in and tried to interfere despite the court ruling in favor of the Native Americans. You should be impeached for that mischievous plan. All you care about is the fertile land that these Native Americans lived in; you didn’t care where you would put these Native Americans so you put them in Indian Territory which is dry and not a great place to live since nothing can be grown.
