“The only course open to Okonkwo was to flee from the clan. It was a crime against the earth goddess to kill a clansman, and a man who committed it had to flee from the land,”(pg. 110).I would say this lead to his downfall. If he was there the tribe would not have fallen prey to the “tricks” of the white man. He would not have let them stay to where they could put down roots.
The mask are used during counsels or judgements to represent their wisdom and spiritual power. The history of the Igbo tribe mask began with the representation of roles, ranking, and others in rituals and celebrations. The mask began with Igbo people absorbing the art, culture, and beliefs of surrounding tribes such as
Houses were burned down, wagon trains, farms, and homes were raided. It had gotten out of control, and so the governor demanded the Native Americans surrender, so that they could be taken care of, and no one would die. A couple of hundred surrendered, but many of the others did not, and sought out for a negotiation instead. The governor did not have the power to negotiate, so he told them to wait at the sand creek while he figured it out. Instead of negotiating he was ordered to kill them, since the Native Americans had killed so many people.
Known as predestination, the Puritans believed that everything that will happen has already been decided by God or fate and cannot be changed. Essentially by this belief, the Pequot War was destined to happen, and that God approved of it. With Natives attacking the colonists in an attempt to push them out - The Pequot War broke out. The war happened because the colonists continued to expand into Native American land and they were demanding the Pequot tribe to pay tribute. They also demanded the Indians give their children for labor, which makes no sense.
All that Okonkwo has done is his life is try to achieve more, but when he doesn 't learn to adapt he causes thing to fall apart. As an example, when Okonkwo refuses to listen to the missionaries in chapter twenty-four the messenger said, ‘“The white man whose power you know too well has ordered this meeting to stop.”’ Because Okonkwo never feared the missionaries when he should have he made the fatal mistake that caused him to take his own life.
Mark Antony believed that the killing of Caesar was wrong and that they had killed him for know more but to take his place. Antony believed that there was no ambition is Caesar at all because when the people offered him the crown at first he rejected it. Caesar did a lot of honorable things as he severed the country in the military to helping it as its new ruler. Mark Antony had found a will after Caesars murder the will was for the people and as Antony had the crowd in front of he they were demanding him to read it. Antony was trying to read it
(Steinbeck 98). This passage shows that George didn't want Lennie to have a painful death. Important to realize, “ An’s’ pose as they lock him up an’ strap him down and put him in a cage, that ain’t no good, George” ( Steinbeck 97). In other words George never wanted Lennie to be treated poorly or be harmed, he wanted Lennie to be cared for, but since he killed Curley's wife they are no out looking for him. George can no longer protect Lennie, he rather end his life with happy feelings, than to suffer a terrible death.
The Company went bankrupt, Native Americans continued to send threats, and the colonists lived in misery. The Company’s charter was revoked, and the Company reached its final demise. James Horn theory is very evident throughout the book: Jamestown’s failure was inevitable. Horn listed many details in which he backed up with his ideas, concepts, and even conversations in the text as to why he believed this theory. Although some of Horn’s arguments do not reconcile with information that I know of Jamestown, I believed this book to be thorough and vivid in his arguments.
It also says the many different ways they suffered. Lastly, it says what happened along the trail and reveals why it is called the Trail of Tears. This shows the Indians suffered and died on the Trail of Tears because they didn’t have a home so they starved and died. That is because Jackson passed the Indian Removal Act which forced the Indians to go on the Trail of Tears, and on the Trail of Tears the Indians died because they had no home. It also shows how sad the Trail of Tears was because of what the Indians went through on it.
Natives were left with nothing after the Europeans wiped them of their resources and way of life. When bringing up new colonies to thrive, the Europeans did not care for the lives of the native people, and so, they were left homeless, without their natural resources, and with a new culture brought upon them by the Europeans. Slavery was commonplace during that time, especially with the large slave trade going on between the New World and Africa. Millions of native people roamed the Americas before the Europeans, but disease wiped out most of the population. The Europeans caused such diseases.
The responsibility was laid out to them clearly, but the decision to downplay this massacre would lead to events soldiers wished never happened. By omission and commission, they suppressed reports of the incident and submitted false or misleading accounts to higher headquarters. (My Lai Massacre) By suppressing the news of the massacre, Calley and his fellow officers just dug themselves a deep hole. Surely they should have expected the cause and effect from this small decision.
He believed Jackson needed a reality check. The Indians were there first, it was their land. He force the Natives to move away from their homeland, with brute force. He believes Jackson could not justify his actions just because it was for America’s benefit. He also stated Jackson refused to listen to many people, and he refused to let Indians live.
