The Sioux Indians had lived on the Dakota Territory for longer than the white men had been in North America, and they would rather die than allow the United States to take their land. The U.S. government used this as an excuse to murder the Indians, making it easier for them to take the lands they wanted. However, before the United States resorted to violence, they attempted to negotiate with the Sioux for their land. These negotiations would often end in threats from the U.S. due to the Sioux’s lack of cooperation. This eventually led to battles between the two parties, where the Sioux would most likely lose and forfeit
History refers to this time as the era of the Killing Fields since over two million people died from being overworked, dehumanized, malnourishment, and conducting executions both arbitrary and selective, killing anyone they caught attempting or accidentally breaking even minor rules.

Therefore, according to Morgan and Cody (as well as other contemporaries sharing similar viewpoints), as Americans gradually permeated Native American territories and established towns and cities, these Native American communities—supposedly made up of primitive barbarians—would fail to come to terms with American efforts to “civilize” Native Americans, thus resulting in warfare between the U.S. and these Indian tribes, and eventually leading to the total genocide of the Indian population (2). However, although warfare did erupt between the two groups—which resulted in the extermination of the majority of Native Americans—theories of total extinction of the Native Americans were inaccurate for two dominant reasons: one, a small but significant group of tribes remained after the intrusion of White settlers, and two, Indians tribes were not made up of simpleminded brutes, but intelligent peoples who were, initially, willing to negotiate with U.S. envoys before war erupted. Both of these facts disproved the claim that Native American stubbornness to adapt to American civilization would be the only cause of their demise—instead, it was the U.S.’ fault

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. They offered many advantages and opportunities.
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.

He did not believe that the pope nor the church had the right to sell indulgences and he made this known in his 95 thesis. He was very careful with his statements though as to not have the same faith as Menocchio. His words were met with a lot of excitement and actually led to townspeople fighting people of higher power and standing. Martin Luther shut this down immediately and encouraged them to kill any of the peasants/townspeople that way things did not become too out of

By the first half of September more than half of the James Fort city (later Jamestown) colonists died, taking the Powhatan’s to pity. This action made Captain John Smith, the colony’s leader, gain more power over time. The Indians thought that if brought into their Confederation the colonists would be a fine source of military equipment and metals.

Their chief refused which made Smith
