The Metis and Aboriginals were only given about 640 acre of land through treaty six. The land went from being the best hunting grounds, to having none from the fur traders hunting all of the buffalo. The government supplied the Metis peoples affected with nations like they agreed in the treaty, but this got to be expensive. The metis claimed that they were fed one day and starved the next. The Metis peoples were not pleased with the whites over taking their land and sources.
The Natives did not trust the English, so they were hesitant about trading. In August, 1609, “Of 120 men stationed near the falls, the Indians kill “neere halfe”.”(Fausz 63). The Natives attacked the English because they did not like how the English treated them. “Of 100 men at Nansemond, Indians kill 50”(Fausz 63). The colonists learned not to mess with the Native Americans after these
She came up to me and said “Hey mister, what if you put a treestand across the field from where the deer comes in also, put a ground blind where it comes in then when it messes with the ground blind that will leave you with a perfect shot.” I couldn’t believe it, his eight year old daughter was smarter than both of us. I tried her plan the next morning, it worked perfectly. I shot the biggest, smartest, most gruesome, grumpy, strong deer I have ever seen. I went back to the ranch, said thanks to the landowner, gave him his gun back, thanked the little girl, then I headed back home with a story no one would
Don't give him what he wants’”(Alexie). The quote is a detective talking about the Indian Killer and how he is a terrible person who is just killing people because he wants attention. This is just one of the many racial profiling examples that Sherman Alexie puts in his literature. Sherman Alexie ties his own experiences into all of his books, such as in this book he lives in Seattle, Washington. He also got inspired by Indians which he became close to since he grew up on the reservation.
In a passage called “Interview: Native Americans” it stated that Indians hunted with bows and skills while the white used an accurate long distance rifle. While Natives tried to preserve the buffalo the Americans killed them for meat for the railroad workers and hunted them for game. Buffalo were hunted nearly to extinction. Before the U.S. arrived in the west there were about 15 - 16 million buffalo roaming. They were hunted down to one thousand in the whole west.
Class, One reason for the defeat of the Plains Indians was the decline of the buffalo herds, due to the killing by white hunters. The buffalo was one of the most sacred things to the Native Americans, but was their main source of supplies, because they used every part of the buffalo to help them. Second are the former Indian lands being settled by homesteaders, because this reduced the ability of tribes to migrate freely through the plains. This also did not allow the Indians to hunt for more buffalo herds. Lastly was the hostile encounter with the US Army which provided a few victories for the Indian population although Sitting Bull and the Indians fought stunning battles such as the defeat of the US Calvary at Little Big Horn, in the end
White Americans loathed the Indians because they were “undeserving” of the fertile land they had. White settlers wanted this land so bad they burned down house and towns, stole animals and lived in land that didn’t belong to them. They tormented the native Americans for decades and then the state governments started passing laws to strip the Indians of their rights. In two separate cases, (Cherokee
These stereotypes negatively affected them to not be taken seriously and were often made to live away from white settlers. If, they ever tried to fight back they were called monsters, the Natives were often treated like second class citizens in their own home. Next, when the settlers wanted land from the Natives, they would set up treaties and trade agreements, and if things didn’t go as planned they would ignore the treaty and take what they wanted by force. Eventually, they began kicking the Native people out of their home and they were forced to stay on reservations that lack the resources needed to survive . Approximately, 90% of Native Americans population passed away from disease in
His philosophies can be seen through how he writes, what he writes, and his characters. To begin, King uses his writing to create fear and tension in his readers. His interest in horror began as a young boy, “ The first movie I ever saw was a horror movie. It was Bambi. When that little deer gets caught in a forest fire, I was terrified, but I was also Exhilarated”(Greene).
Her mother could not even pay to his son the travel to see his dead father. The condition of the road and the lack of infrastructure show as well the insufficiency of the natives. The fear of white people who take their land is still there. For instance Victor and Thomas fear the two men who took their place on the bus as well as the sheriff who accuse them of creating an accident. However, in all this troublesome that the natives have today, we also notice some pattern unique to the native.
The natives did not have warm clothes to pass true the cold weather but the settlers were well prepared for the snowy mountains. The natives were very cold and they were hungry; thousands of people died along the way. The constitution which was written in 1787, it states in the 5th amendment that is also part of the Bill of Rights, “ nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation”. No one can use or take someone 's property without the permission. The United States went against their own rights, they took away property from the natives, because they needed to expand, without even conversing with them.
The Indian people of El Paso hated the idea of a statue of such a terrible man being displayed in their city, to them it was like celebrating Hitler, but the amount of money that had already gone into the project was so excessive there was no turning back. One American Indian artist in the community, Maurus Chino, was so disgusted with the idea he started to get the word out about who Oñate really was and the genocide he caused. Maurus Chino started sculpting feet to honor those who lost theirs in the past to Oñate and it also showed that the American Indians of El Paso, Texas were, “putting their foot down,” to the completion and erection of the statue. There were meetings and votes to decide what to do, they couldn’t have a statue paid for by the public’s money, that the public hated, but the amount of money put into the project outweighed the opinions of the public. The best solution to the problem with the statue I believe was renaming it so that it would not be known as The Equestrian instead of Don Juan de Oñate.
