These tribes were more civilized then we are lead to believe. 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.
A bloody massacre which resulted in the deaths of 270 of our kind, and most of them were women and children. Then when the Sioux retaliated against the white for committing this atrocity, they got launched into a battle between the white men. We won but at a cost of 100 of our people. All we want is to keep the land the white people
The Southeast covers generally the same tragic situations that took place with the tribes in that region. It also covers the distinction of the farming techniques they acquired along with trading techniques and their cultural relationships among other natives and Europeans. The Southwest covers archeological questions and the deep history with many tribes including the Apacheans who migrated southwards from Canada and Alaska. He covers history of the pueblos as and their cultural
Stalin denied the famine that was in Ukraine and continued to export grain that would’ve kept all of those people alive for 2 years. Ukrainians became so desperate they started eating leaves off of trees, killed animals like dogs and cats, other people went completely insane and resorted to cannibalism. People lying on the sidewalks that were still alive sometimes were thought to be dead and were carried away and buried alive. Many countries and international relief organizations tried offering their help but Ukraine turned them away. It’s an estimate that 2.5-7.5 million Ukrainians died altogether.
Many wars happened because the white people weren’t loyal to them, so due to those problems,therefore the Indians hated them. All of their food which was bison, also meaning buffalo, were killed by the military troops and the starving Sioux tribe decided to fight back and to defend themselves from this outrageous problem. Lots of Native Americans and white men died, which in this case, the Sioux fled. The influence the Americans did on their tribe culture made many changes.
According to “The Trail of Tears,” Andrew Jackson enforced the Indian Removal Act which ordered the U.S army to force American Indians out of their land. The Indians had no say in this even if they started adapting to American life. They were forced to walk many miles until they reached Oklahoma. Many of them suffered from certain illnesses or they died along the way. Many civilians living in the United States were ashamed of what was happening, but Andrew wanted to fight for what he thought was right.
The act he created was made to relocate Indians off of American land. The biggest outcome of this was the Trail of Tears. On this trail, 16,000 cherokees walked through one of the hardest winters in American history, and only 12,000 survived. Many people blame this on Andrew Jackson, but it was not Andrew which killed them, it was the winter. The US even bought the land before, so the Indians shouldn’t have been there anyway.
Whitmire states that white settlers came to, “the Indian's homes, drove off their cattle, horses, and pigs, and they even rifled the graves for any jewelry, or other ornaments that might have been buried with the dead” (Whitmire). Whitmire shows how the Cherokees were oppressed by the fact that not only were the white settlers forcing them to leave their homes, but that they also destroyed their ancestors burial sites for their riches which was both disrespectful as well as mortifying for their family
The government indirectly killed people through their intended food shortages. And, the government killed people when the people disobeyed these laws by sneaking food found in the field.. The UN’s definition
Native Americans are the group of people who are native to America. Moreover, Native Americans were killed by the new diseases brought by the Europeans colonizing America. In addition, Native Americans were also relocated when the Europeans desired the land the Natives were on. Although, the Europeans relocated and killed Native Americans. They were often given large expanses of land and were by treaty relieved of any taxation till perpetuity.
The genocide that Stalin inflicted on the Ukrainians began in 1929 with massive deportations of the most successful farmers of Ukraine. All farmers were forced to give up their land to the government. These farms would then be state owned and factory ran. If farmers and families would refuse to leave their homes, they would be drug out of their houses and forced onto freight trains that would then take them to remote areas. To add on, the Soviet Union sharply increased Ukraine 's’ production quotas, to make it near impossible to fill, which eventually led to the widespread starvation all across Ukraine.
The troops ask for them to camp on Wounded land and they will be send back the next morning and the Sioux agreed. The next morning the troops confiscated their weapons and took them away some natives were angry and kept some weapons. A soldier ask a deaf Sioux to put his weapon down but he did not understand they started to pulled and a shot was fired the war broke out and they army killed over one hundred fifty three unarmed Sioux. After the massacre the U.S. tried to help and rescue the survivors but a blizzard passed threw and the bodies froze it was too late. The Dawes Act was created for the government’s goal to divide up the tribal land among individual natives.
Assignment 5 1. The massacre of the buffalo herd was the end of a way life for the Plains tribes because thy depended on every part of the animal so much. The used the buffalo for food, clothing, tools, and shelter. The American’s single handedly drove the buffalo species to near extinction, which caused the Plains tribe’s way of life to drastically change.
When the Europeans arrived, they wiped out most of the Native American population and destroyed their carefully sculpted land by building. Europeans, however, were not able to adapt to their new life in the Americas since they just didn’t know how to manipulate their environment like the Native Americans. Life was actually so brutal for the Europeans that many of them ran away to live with the Indians, suggesting that the Indians had a higher quality of life than the first Europeans did. “Horrifying the leaders of Jamestown and Plymouth, scores of English ran off to live with the Indians” (Mann, p9). The “high counter/low counter” argument further suggests that the Native Americans had a high standard of living, probably higher than the European standard of living at that time.
It was not until 1836 when Texas won its Independence and later in 1845 when Texas was annexed into the United States that saw the downturn for the Comanches 3. As more and more white settlers moved into the plains area this impacted the hunting areas for many of the Comanche bands. Many took to raiding the settlements and this lead to greater force to be used against them. Since they where not all united they were divided and forced onto reservation lands. Those who did not move to reservations where wiped out.
