Trump had honored them this year on the National American Indian Heritage Month. They were recognized until decades later. Most of the Code talker now, have passed away and didn’t get honored. One of the Navajo Code Talkers Chester Nez was awarded Audie Murphy award. In 2000, Congress passed legislation to honor the Navajo Code Talkers with gold and silver medals.
A perfect example of these Apaches was the Mescalero Apaches which helped the American military achieve its goals during the war. The devotion and commitment that the Native Americans showcases paints the image of a community that overlooked past resentments and disappointments. They would have opted to count themselves as a minority group but instead approached the battleground in full force. It is this evident that the Native Americans understood the benefits of defending one’s own land in times of crisis. When the Pearl Harbor was attacked, a population of 5,000 Native Americans was active in the battleground.
Throughout the war there were several crucial purposes that the Navajo Code Talkers and those who aided them were able to fulfill, and even though the code talkers didn’t know their special assignments at first, they still participated voluntarily. Navajo Code Talkers and other Native Americans mainly served in the same military units as white soldiers, since they did not fit into the all black units that were available. In addition to being assigned to white units, they were also required to go through basic training, boot camp, and eight weeks of intensive code training. In a June 1943 Arizona Highway magazine article, it states that, “The Navajo was born in the saddle, is inured to hardship, and with the will to fight, which all Navajos
There were more than 500 treaties that was made and broken by the U.S. government. The well-known treaty was the treaty of Fort Laramie which was to bring peace with the europeans and the sioux to settle by the black hills, but a miner found gold traces in the black hills and the U.S. broke the treaty. Then the government decided to put the Lakotas, Dakotas, and Nakotas into reservations so they can stop raiding settlements and U.S. Forts. Before there were more 1 million native americans, but by the 19th century, there were estimated 237,000 left in the country. Should cultural treasures be returned to their country of origin?
Other things were made with bone and shell, including the traditional Apache choker. The silver jewelry they made usually had engravings of important Indian symbols that told a story or represented a successful event or warrior. The Apache tears were another traditional form of jewelry, they were made with black obsidian or onyx. They were made to represent the 75 people that died in a battle that took place in 1870. The tears themselves represent the tears that each family shed for the fallen soldiers.
In the “Children on the battlefield” article written by Marcie Schwartz explains that boys under 18 have served in many wars including the Civil War. They would join by lying about there age, having their parents sign them up, or there teachers would influence the recruiting officer to let them join. Some recruiting officers would look the other way so that they could met their quota. When they were enlisted they had many hard and dangerous jobs to do and also also served on military ships. The boys often were home sick and did not know what they wanted to do with there life.
(Robinson, 1991, “The U.S. Response” Para 3) The rest were left to fight on their own without the aid of the United States or their leader General Vang Pao. Many felt betrayed by the United States for forgetting about the promise, for they had to save many of themselves by their selves to get to safety. It is only until the Hmong have immigrated to the United States. Roughly there are about 260,000 Hmongs living in the United States today, according to the 2010 census. (Lindsay, 2015, “The Story of the Hmong People in the United States” Para.
Native American Research: Chief Pontiac Intro Chief Pontiac is a Native American that is important to the United States’ history. He was a part of the Ottawa tribe and led the American Indians to a revolution also known as the Pontiac War or Pontiac’s Rebellion, which was against the British when they first came to America. He wasn’t afraid to die for his rights. He believed that they all had rights to live in America and to live how they wanted to live. I chose him for my Native American Research because he was a courageous Native American hero.
Moving to America, at 14 years old, was my biggest challenge because I found it hard to adjust to life in a new country. The food was different, the people were hard to understand, the school was strange—it was like another planet. The difficulty fitting in made me miss England constantly, and I found myself longing to return. After a few months of failing to adapt to my new setting, I started to curiously learn about Buddhism. I read a book written by Steve Hagen titled “Buddhism Plain and Simple,” and found that some of the teachings spoke directly to my situation.
My 7th grade class was given a series of challenges to understand what it was sort of like to be a person with a disability. The hardest challenge was not using your dominant arm to put a shirt on and button it. It was hard being that I couldn’t button my shirt, but some of my classmates were able to button it up and down to get the shirt on and off. I was very sluggish being that I had to restart and make a new strategy to get the shirt on. I was frustrated with the activity where we were not allowed to talk at all, but we had to mouth it.
Ned if affected by war in some very unfortunate ways.During training Ned had to go though many things.In the book Ned stated that”What you did in boot camp did not have to make sense.You just had to do it.”(60).I think that Ned meant that even if you didn’t understand why you had to do it you were expected to.Not only did Ned have a hard time adjusting to bootcamp but he had an even harder time adjusting to war.During war Ned lost a lot of people he knew and as it would to anyone else 's it hurt him.During war Ned was shot in the shoulder.Being shot impacted him a lot because he was unable to fight for a while.Ned described how he felt and told about how he couldn 't raise his arm.Ned was also upset and very much so scared when his friend Georgia Boy was shot.Ned explained his fear for his friend’s life by saying”I realized I was the one doing the yelling as I pressed my hands down onto Georgia Boy’s neck,trying to stem the flow of blood”(192-193).Ned was definitely changed by that and it surely didn 't help his experiance in war.Ned went through some hard times in war but he still did
Therefore, this statement demonstrates the efficiency of this method as the German hostage admits how they were confused about what Americans were saying. When the German says that they couldn’t make heads or tails of what they were saying, they were not even able to infer what the code talkers were discussing. Interestingly, when this method had first been proposed, the topic of Native American rights had been brought up. When the United States had entered the war “it had not yet granted citizenship to all Native Americans, and government-run boarding schools were still largely attempting to stamp out their languages and cultures. Nonetheless, several thousand Native Americans enlisted in the armed forces to fight the Central Powers” (Greenspan 1).
Another very big medical development was being able to create the first immortal human-cell line. They had been trying to do this for awhile before the first one was created, so it was a very important event. The next big topic Skloot discussed was poverty. Money was tight in the Lacks family, especially since they had lots of health issues. When the Lacks family found out about the cells, they were extremely angered that people were making profit off of them, and they could not even get health insurance.
