Kids who didn’t follow the rules were beaten, resulting in a death toll of over 4000. Although residential schools were not very notable in the eye of the public at the time they were open, they have become extremely damaging to the aboriginal
Our only option was to attack their villages and force them to provide us with food. This only made them more hostile towards us. Chief Powhatan died in 1618 and gave his brother, Opechancanough, control of the Powhatan confederacy . Unlike his brother, Opechancanough could not tolerate us. One day I was accompanying a group of men up the Chesapeake River.
For one thing, “College: Who Profits?”, states, “many college graduates are suffocating under loan debts with limited job opportunities”(Herbert 360-365). Graduates don’t like the jobs they have to be and aren’t getting paid. Without spending money on college, you can have a variety of job options. To point out, “College: Who Profits?”,”54% college graduates were unemployed and many who worked had jobs unrelated to their field of study”(Herbert 360-365). More than half of graduates did not have a job.
The suicide of a young person has never been a simple matter for any community to cope with, but this predicament has become particularly heartbreaking for the native communities that reside on Native American Reservations such as Pine Ridge. The situation has become an epidemic. There are numerous causes behind it. Being bullied at school, the high rate of joblessness, or parents that just are not there for their children. All the motives that put any young person at risk of suicide are seemingly intensified on Native American reservations.
The majority of people made under 2,000 dollars a year (Document 9) which was considered the bare minimum to live off of, the buy all of the basic essentials. These people didn’t have any money to spend on luxury items and couldn’t buy on credit. During this time, some companies priced their goods at a higher price than the majority of people made in a year, like boats that were priced anywhere from 10,000 dollars to 35,000 dollars (Document 8). With nobody to buy from them, these businesses were left without a profit and began going bankrupt. An average family before the depression with two people working full time jobs only made around twenty dollars a week (Document 7).
Many colonial powers change the Indian’s way of life. However, when the United States gained its own independence from Great Britain, this integration problem still not resolved. As the American government gained control almost all indigenous lands, assimilation has become forceful act for the Indians to follow for survival. Compare to the early arrival of the Europeans, integration with the Americans in the contemporary period have caused the Indians to become increasingly more frustrated and resentment over time. The relation to the colonial times for integration was friendlier in some aspects even when violence is used to solve the issue.
Every country has events they wished didn’t happen. The United States of America combined all of those situations in The Indian Removal Act in 1830. The Age of Jackson and the Indian Removal Act permanently crippled the Native American culture and population. Before the Age of Jackson, Thomas Jefferson had similar goals, but different practices and sought to more peacefully assimilate Native Americans into American culture. Then, under Jackson’s presidency, America forced the indigenous peoples to move elsewhere so Americans could access the land they had been living on.

The Great Depression was a devastating period in United States History, the economy collapsed, and a staggering 25% of the population was unemployed. During this time, there were large wage disparity gaps that were very prevalent, there was no middle class, you were either wealthy or you were poor. It was hard for family life to continue, parents had to take up two and three jobs to make sure their kids were staying safe, and well. Most of these jobs were odd-jobs, and were temporary with no sense of security. It was a struggle to find work, and no job was too demeaning for you to do, because you may not find work again.

Native Americans were the first American citizens, but ever since explorers discovered America they have had a prejudice towards them. Throughout the years the Natives have endured racism, the Trail of Tears, being stuck on a reservation, and ultimately being marginalized. Native’s who live on reservations feel discriminated against and mistreated which makes life on one rough. The sadness and general melancholy on a reservation leads Native Americans to have severe drug and alcohol problems.
Native American education has a low quality rate, is decreasing at a rapid rate, and have some of the lowest performing schools in the country . Native Americans are not getting the amount of school that other students get. There is a poor graduation rate and it has not has much progress in the last few years. The graduation rate has increased in the last few years, but lately, it has been at a stationary rate. Students of this ethnicity are getting poor educations and have a bad chance of getting chances of having a good life when they grow up, The number of native american graduates is very low and is pretty stationary.
During the late 19th and earlier 20th centuries, many of the Native Americans suddenly had to start changing their way of life in order to live amongst the Anglo-Americans. They were given ultimatums in which if they did not comply with the newly imposed organizations of political, economic, legal, and social institutions, Native Americans had to suffer the consequences. For several centuries, many tribes have passed and those who survived were the ones who did the “tragic, but necessary” actions abide by these organizations and assimilated their way into survival. The Allotment Period was meant to terminate all Native Americans; however, it proved to not only the Anglo-Americans that Native Americans are in fact capable of assimilation, but
All discrimination, racism, and stereotyping against the Native Americans, was bound to happen the day Columbus landed in the Caribbean; after that it just went downhill. The English and French colonists joined the Spanish, and their colonization of the north-west was what led to the plight of the native population. Then the treaties started rolling over the native peoples, which at first seemed like good agreements, but then the treaties began to be violated. Some of the worst violations were made against the Cherokee Nation.
Health Crises in the Native American Population For hundreds of years, Native Americans have had to face many hardships in their lives. These hardships include drug and alcohol abuse, poverty, and diseases. Due to these reasons, Native Americans have an average life expectancy of 73.7 years; 4.4 years shorter than the average white American (“Indian Health Services…”). Native American communities face huge challenges because of chronic health conditions such as type two diabetes, HIV/AIDS, and mental illness.
