No one really has the correct answer. The only answer is that these names are hurting the Native Americans more and more. With this kind of treatment, Native Americans feel as if they are considered as minorities, considered as unfortunate, and considered as insignificant in racial categories. By having their tribe and group names on the athletes’ jerseys, it brings anger rather than pride to be a Native American. Whether considered as a major ethnic group or not, Native Americans must be given the respect by having all offensive names on sports team repealed and a legal assurance that there will be no further misconceptions and racial prejudice in sports history ever again in United States
Stannard addresses this as the “‘invisible’ population loss,” because the settlers would have had no idea that these people had even died, since they hadn’t even reached that specific land yet [Stannard 268]. Furthermore, before the Spanish reached the pueblos in the southwest, the pueblo population could have been depleted due to epidemics [Upham 227-228]. The invisible population loss is what is still widely debated today as there is no way for researchers to know for sure exactly how many natives died. Nonetheless, Upham and Stannard both supply compelling evidence suggesting that this did happen, which severely depleted the populations prior to contact with Europeans in the New
Such peace, however, did not last long: Axtell finishes his essay by mentioning the prophets that appeared among the natives and tried to persuade them to fight the whites’ domination and to return to their old ways. Unfortunately, such way did not bring the locals freedom but worsened their situation with the newcomers. The Natives became outcasts and started drinking excessively. By this Axtell ultimately claims that they influenced their own history as much as the whites
A Scout is Loyal. This is a characteristic that if you asked people about me, I hope they would list above others. Loyalty to me is an unbreakable bond. Without it, I believe we are nothing but selfish. Loyalty isn 't just blind loyalty to someone or something.
He says, “If we find it does them good, makes them honest and less disposed to cheat Indians, we will then consider again what you have said” (Stone, 1841). Even though Red Jacket had no idea of knowing the future, this statement really foreshadows the dark world Native Americans would have had ahead of them. White colonists majorly displaced and deceived Indigenous peoples, turning them against each other, resulting in many deaths and hardships. Even though this point is representing what is to come, the irony of the statement gives a great impact of how hypocritical the Christian colonists actually were. With hypocrisy comes self-contradiction.
Many assume that the Whites gave the Indians many freedom when conquering their land. The standard way of thinking about how Whites treating Indians has it by biased history. It is often said by the Native Americans that they are forced to do actions without their actual opinion on them. The standard way of thinking about religion is allowing people to express themselves in the beliefs and get worship on their own. Chief Red Jacket’s 1805 Speech purpose is to acknowledge that the Indians will not allow the Whites to force conversion in Christianity upon them by using pathos , repetition and imagery.
They were also infected by the diseases that the Spaniards were immune to. He showed not on ounce of respect for the Native American people. This is why Columbus is a villain. General Summary of why stating there are __ reasons that will be discussed (History of religion prior to Columbus) After Columbus learned the religion of Native Americans they were threatened to either change their religion or to be annihilated. He forced
In the reading of The Round House, by Louise Erdrich, the characters are at conflict with their inability to leverage jurisdiction due to their identity as native Americans. Bazil’s null efforts to attain jurisdiction for Geraldine’s rape case illustrates how even our core moral values can be devaluated to identity. The way in which Bazil’s authority is addressed, giving him false illusionary power, shows that regardless of occupation, being a native American gives you much less power. One illustration of this illusionary power would be when Joe states, “I had imagined that my father decided great questions of the law, that he worked on treaty rights, land restoration, that he looked murderers in the eye, that he frowned while witnesses stuttered and silences clever lawyers with a slice of injury” (Erdrich 48). Bazil, being a lawyer, had given Joe a falsehood of his power’s extent; Joe had thought Bazil handled preeminent legal cases, including cases of murder and land restoration.
If Kathleen, or any of the Godfrey’s were to visit New Mexico they would see reservations as a justice because they were not deserving of an existence as the ancient people. Natives would righteously be put away from society because they were not as peaceful or civilized. Or Natives would need be assimilated until they were more like the ancient people, or more American. Tom’s stories leave a big mess for Natives to clear up. Because of stories like his, they need to vindicate themselves from falsehoods of savagery found in his story.
He finishes up the paragraph by saying “In this way, I learned to read.” The next two paragraphs link together. In paragraph five Alexie refers to himself in third person. In paragraph six Alexie informs the reader why he refers to himself in third person in the previous paragraph. He tells the reader it is because Indians are raised to be dumb, and fail. A smart Indian was considered a threat, and was widely feared among the non-Indian community.
How does this idea translate into our reality? The answer, I submit, is that it doesn 't. Rather, it translates into our realities; for every human being, courage will mean something different, and all definitions are quite valid. For example, it seems to be a common idea amongst the American people that our military embodies concepts such as courage, patriotism, and selflessness, and that our soldiers deserve a deep respect for their service. Someone more personally detached from the military might not be as inclined to agree with this idea as, say, someone who lives near a military area, or someone with family members in the military- however, the idea is still just as valid.
Andrew Jackson’s message to Congress and “Samuel’s Memory” are about the same topic, the Indian Removal Act, but are two completely different pieces. Both are told from two very different points of views. Both evoke very different emotions. One was written to persuade people and justify the Act and the other was written to show the horror of the Act and the devastation of how the act affected the Indian people. While both are about the same topic, they are nowhere near the same.
The ones that cooperated would be exempt. After that Bacon’s ideas started to spread and the Rebellion had begun. According to Zinn’s point of view, Bacon was not very interested in helping the poor ones, but in killing the Native Americans. As a matter of fact, Bacon himself was not even in the lowest class; he belonged to a new class that started to arise, which was a not so privileged upper class. More towards the end of “Persons of Mean and Vile Condition”, Zinn explains why the Bacon’s Rebellion was so feared, and what new aspect it can give us on America.
