They were not getting a say in government issues kicked off of their “promised” land that the United States government said they “could” have. The U.S. made this temporary and that is what caused the protests in the documents and other ones throughout history. Today, they are hurt by it. For example, the area around Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota became famous in the recent headline. They were protesting the oil pipeline that would carry gallons of American oil from North Dakota to Illinois.
Have you ever wondered about the Dakota access pipeline and thought is it good or bad. The Dakota access pipeline is an “Oil pipeline that would run diagonally across Iowa, through 18 counties, from northwest Iowa to southeast Iowa” (Tyler Durden, 2016). Even though I do not support the pipeline, because of damaging reasons, it does help our economy become more desirable. First I do not support this pipeline considering it does not help our environment. Second I do not support this pipeline considering there is a concern about the impacts of the pipeline in our country.
Due to the archaeologists failing to see the real problem with both the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Great Planes Expanse, the US government is already budding heads with the Native Americans, which could lead to future problems with them. The roads that are built to boost the economy not only help today’s society, but they run through Native American land which was promised to them and is not supposed to be touched by the US
Given the two possible ways in which Ventria could stay in California, I believe the company should leave the State. Activists, farmers and millers have a great power in terms of convincing the regulatory agencies and the population’s mind. Farmers and millers do not want competition in a market they already have the control, specially if the new product brings more benefits to the consumers. Activists will bring down Ventria’s reputation to the public and protest for the rejection of the protocol. Fighting against this three groups does not worth the time and money that would be spent.
Some individuals believe that using the wilderness for drilling of oil purposes will solve the US and its dependency on foreign oil. Through this article, Democratic congressman Edward J. Markey, alongside Representative Nancy Johnson, discuss the reasons for which they want to save the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, or the ANWR, and other wilderness reserves from being developed on and industrialized. This wildlife reserve has been labeled as being one of the most magnificent reserves found in America. Unfortunately, people want to encroach on this territory and use it to increase the nation’s oil and gas development. This is not the first time that the reserve has been threatened but it is the most extreme.
The company claims that this will be more environmentally friendly and it will lower costs. This upset the tribe because the bulldozers that are being used to build the pipeline are ruining the tribes sacred burial grounds, prayer sites, and some culturally significant artifacts, as well
One more reason why a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico will not protect American jobs and reduce crime is because the wall will cut through the bridge of nature. On CBSN, Jeff Corwin state that, “Hundreds if not thousand of species rely on this natural movement of land.” What Jeff Corwin, who is a wildlife biologist is trying to say here is that this wall will affect our environment and ecosystem. This wall will cause destruction of habitat, loss of access to important resources, mortality caused by construction activity, migration routes blocked, and alteration of water flows. Someone else might argue that the animals can just simply find another route, but this is logically flawed because that route is part of the animal 's
Hello Tamara Thank you for the insight on the federal Indian termination policies durning the 1950’s,and our selfish acts in attempting to move Indians off reservations and into subruban areas, I feel that justice could never be made for the todays native americans simply because the suffering we put their ansestors through could never take away the tears or pain we inflicted on them ,even though our federal government had even initiated a policy of removal as well as termination of the native americans under this particular policy that was souly created so the Native American people would no longer be government wards on reservations which todays era they are entiltled for the most psrt “subject to the same laws and entitled to the same privileges
hook: Approximately 20,000 people died while traveling on the Oregon Trail, this fact alone is nearly enough to support the idea that American western expansion, due to the manifest destiny, was not justified. However, some other reasons why America was not justified in its expansion were that the settlers treated the natives harshly and inhumanely for no discernible reasoning, also the traveling was too much of a gamble, and finally that modern-day America is against imperialistic expansion. background info: thesis: America was not justified in its western expansion due to the lack of morality behind putting one person’s comfort above the safety of another. claim 1: Modern day America is against the taking of another country’s land
An American Indian tribe from South Dakota did the unthinkable. "Lazy" Indians who always rely on handouts (because that 's the stereotype) rejected a lot of money from the Washington R*dskins http://www.care2.com/causes/federal-judge-cancels-racist-nfl-team-names-trademark.html on principle. Some things can 't be brought -- they can 't be silenced "Sold Our Souls -- Price Was Cheap" As reported in The Washington Post, http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/local/wp/2015/08/05/native-american-tribe-votes-to-reject-25000-offered-by-washington-redskins-foundation/ the Cheyenne River Sioux 's leadership voted to rejected a hefty sum (a guaranteed $25,000) from the Washington R*dskins team and the Washington R*dskins Original Americans Foundation; both entities are led by Daniel Snyder. The foundation targets many (mostly rural)
I would be for a draft (such as in World War Two, as a means of self preservation) as a legitimate government activity to protect the country. But not if said government is the aggressor in the conflict, or the total number of soldiers needed could be hired in another way as to not force those into the army who don’t want to serve. As a pacifist, I believe that there are better ways to solve issues that don’t include missiles and bullets. Diplomacy is the way to
