During the 1838 Congress passed a law called the Indian Removal homes from Georgia to Indian Territory. It was a long walk 4,000 thousand of us died from the terrible weather,illness, weakness. After the devastating journey, the Cherokee Indians tried to settle in their new "desert" home. In the new territory, problems developed with the new arrivals, and Cherokees who had already come here. These problems were quickly overcame. We now have all that is there, along with all the lives lost. The Trail of Tears was a bad, sad, and hurtful day. People we
GGrowing up on the Navajo Nation is an experience, compared to residing in a city. I grew up in Tuba City, an hour north of Flagstaff, AZ. Tuba City, a town with a population a little over 8,500, several restaurants, one grocery store, two high schools, and two stoplights. On the other hand, the town is growing.
Between 1830 and 1850, the Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muscogee, Creek, Seminole and Cherokee peoples were forced to leave their homelands to relocate further west. The Cherokee Nation removal in 1838 (the last forced removal east of the Mississippi) was brought on by the discovery of gold near Dahlonega, Georgia, in 1829, resulting in the Georgia Gold Rush.1
4,000 Native American Cherokees died on the dreadful, around 1,000 mile journey to the Oklahoma territory. The United States forced them to move out west. But why wasn’t the U.S government justified to do this? There were two main reasons the Indian Removal Act was wrong.
Could you imagine the government coming to your family 's property you have had for years and taking it and making everyone walk a 1000 miles? Well thats is what happened to the Native Americans. They were drove from there property beaten and killed. Then made them walk over a 1000 miles to their new place that was awful. There was no food or water or anything while the government took there land and made fun of them. The government people also raped thousands of the Cherokee women. And also killed many of them as well. Now the Holocaust on the other hand had a tremendous drop in population as well. Accept it was towards a different race. It was led by a man name Hitler and he hated the jewish society. So he developed his own clan. They had one mission and it was to destroy all Jews that they possibly could. There were between five and six million Jews killed during the Holocaust. So they did succeed in there one mission they had. So in both the Holocaust and the Trail of Tears there were well over a million people killed in both of these disasters.

They lasted until the late 1700 's & early 1900 's.
From 1863-1868, the Navajo, or Diné, found themselves the target of a major campaign of war by the Union Army and surrounding enemies in the American Southwest, resulting in a program of removal and internment. This series of events is known to the Navajo as the “Long Walk” , where as a people the Navajo were devastated by acts of violence from multiple factions of enemies. The perspectives of the Navajo regarding the “Long Walk” can grant context to the changes occurring in the American Southwest during the American Civil War, where the focus of the Union’s military might fell upon Native Americans instead of Confederate forces. Rather than as a program of Indian removal resulting from the Civil War militarization of the Southwest, the Navajo
How did the Trail of Tears impact America? In 1837, President Andrew Jackson was determined to shape America into a nation, ridded of Natives. Jackson wanted them to the west of the Mississippi river, urging Congress to pass the Indian Removal Act. The Cherokee were the most affected by these events. Although brutal and loosely to the Cherokee and many other tribes, I feel proud of the of the events of the trail of Tears, because we gained land, solved the whit’s Indian problem, and helped achieve Manifest Destiny!
The topic of focus for my paper was the Long Walk of the Navajo and Navajo Wars during the Civil War period until 1868, as that period is remembered by the Navajo. I believe that a greater understanding of the history of the American Soutwest can be reached taking Navajoes’ memories and perspectives of these events into account. The Long Walk of the Navajo was migration of the tribe to a reservations across the Southwest, most prominently Bosque Redondo, wherein they suffered from a variety of degradations from violence and raids to starvation. This process of migration occurred in waves, and was triggered by warfare and violence at the hands of the Navajo’s enemies, including the United States (or Union), New Mexican citizens, and other tribes
White settlers wanted Native Americans removed from their homeland because they wanted to expand their land and are thirst for gold and resources. The U.S. government supported expansion by using the Treaty of New Echota, known as the Treaty Party signed by about 100 Cherokees to justify the removal. Because of the encroachment of white settlers, Native Americans were forced to leave their homeland. Leading up to the Trail of Tears, the U.S. government possessed with greed for gold and expansion of land, ordered the Indian Removal Act of 1830. This act caused the Native Americans to be forced to leave their homeland.
The Mandan Tribe lived very simple and interesting lives.Most of the Mandan tribe members did regular jobs such as we do today.Such as farm and hunt for food and materials.The Mandan tribespeople was very peaceful and didn't want to fight any people.Therefore they kept mainly to themselves.The Mandan people were very simplistic and peaceful people.
Every word that is spoken has a deep and rich history. Words that are commonplace today may have first been used thousands of years ago, and thousand miles away. Words and languages are very important pieces to history, they allow us to relate to our ancestors and their struggles as well as their triumphs. This is especially true in Oklahoma, which is home to many Indian tribes. Oklahoma actually started as “Indian Territory” after most Indians were sequestered here following their removal. One tribe that is especially important to the history of Oklahoma is the Choctaw tribe, and more importantly the Choctaw language.
Many social movements are graded by the impact on specific outcomes or policies that are a result of the social movement. The American Indian Movement (AIM) could be graded on these same grounds but a more accurate portal of AIM would be to grade the AIM organization based simply on the ability of AIM to be a self-determining organization took action regardless of what the federal government allowed. A young American Indian activist Clyde Warrior stated in a paper entitled “What I Would Like My Community to Look Like in Ten Years”: Programs must Indian creations, Indian choices, Indian experiences. Even the failures must be experiences because only then will Indians understand why a program failed and not blame themselves for some personal
