He does this by referring to the white men as “poisonous serpents” (Tecumseh, 232). Tecumseh shares the experiences that they had with the Europeans. The white men had asked for land sufficient for a wigwam, but how they turned greedy and the land was not enough for them (Tecumseh, 233). He warns the tribes of the harm the whites can do by causing them to separate. He wants the tribes to fear the whites and uses more metaphors like referring to them as white runners who are “devastating winds” and “rushing waters” (Tecumseh, 233).
Ypres, Belgium- Yesterday, on April 24, the First Canadian Division won recognition by holding their ground at Salient Ypres, against German 's new weapon of modern warfare, chlorine gas for 2 days. On April 22, the Germans released 160 tons of chlorine gas towards the French accompanied by the Canadians and British, which caused many to asphyxiate by drowning in their own bodily fluids.

government broke its promises, some of the Dakota Indians went to war against the white settlers. Many Dakota did not join in, choosing to aid and protect settlers instead. The fighting lasted six weeks and many people on both sides were killed or fled Minnesota. Former Minnesota governor Henry Sibley led an expedition of soldiers and Dakota scouts against the Dakota warriors. The war ended on December 26, 1862, when thirty-eight Dakota Indians were hanged in Mankato in the largest mass execution in U.S. history.
The U.S. citizens were killing buffalo to feed railroad workers and to give leather to factories. Around 1 million buffalo were killed each year and soon they were dying off. In document five, it shows what each part of the buffalo was used for. It shows that the Native Americans used every part of the animals just to survive. They used it for food, clothes, shelter, and tools.
This personification proves the theme because she is being courageous to fight against them because they killed her husband. An example of evidence of personification is Rikki-tikki put his paws one on each side of the egg, and his eyes were blood-red. “What price for a snake’s egg? For a young cobra? For a young king cobra?
Europeans were eager with furs and the Indians derided them, an example was that the they gave the Indians 20 beautiful knives to exchange a Beaver skin. 2. However, they became accustomed to each other. The French taught the Indians to use weapons and burn fire at night.
Alaska, the last frontier, houses many of the only places in the United States that have not been explored by humans. Alaska provides the ecosystem for loads of life that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The biggest glacier in North America, the Hubbard Glacier, the lush forests that range over the hills, and mountain ranges that stretch for hundreds of miles draws thousands of tourists from many counties come see Alaska. Many of Alaskan forests are in danger due to illegal logging and mining for natural resources. This disappoints me because most people will likely never be able to experience the beauty of Alaskan wilderness due to global warming and climate change.
Hunting, coupled with the extensive deforestation of their habitat for farm ground, severely crippled the wood ducks population. The Migratory Bird Treaty Act allowed for the complete protection of the wood duck and placed limits on hunting the species (Bellrose 1976). Protection from hunters, conservation of remaining habitat, and the development of the wood duck nest box, led to one of the best comeback stories in North American wildlife history. By 1941, 14 states allowed the take of 1 wood duck per hunter, and by the mid 1960s, wood ducks ranked second or third in the bags of hunters from the Mississippi and
Grizzlies were very populated and were at a balance point in the ecosystem. There was fifty thousand grizzlies in North America, historically. Now there are one thousand eight hundred grizzlies in North America. The grizzly bear is close to extinction. The grizzly bear is now on the endangered species list.
Many people live off fishing whether it’s catching and selling fish or catching and eating fish. Anyways, the reasons why I think we need to come up with a solution for this crisis is because we have seals and sea lions killing off salmon, ODFW making rules that makes it tougher to catch salmon, and we have dams that are raising the water lever. My first reason why I think we need to solve this problem is because we have seals and sea lions that are eating a bunch of salmon in the Columbia river. And yet the worst part is, they aren’t even native. The sea lions just follow the fish from California.
The inuit, Haidas, and iroquois are different in many ways, and I am here to explain them. First of all, they are the same in a way because they all are dedicated to hunting, but that is something that all tribes need to do to live. Next, it's fishing. If you haven't noticed, all of these tribes like, and are experts at fishing. They all used pretty similar tools, for example, all of them use bow and arrows.
