“Some harshe and (cruel) dealinge by cutting of towe(two) of the Salvages heads and other extremetyes.”(Hume 61). The colonist’s bad relationship with the Native Americans led to many deaths. “Although still part of Powhatan’s Confederacy, the tribe had seen less of the English that had those closer at hand and with luck might be more friendly. And so it proved.”(Hume 61). The Natives did not trust the English, so they were hesitant about trading.
On May 18, 1539, Hernando de Soto and his crew finally departed for Florida. On May 25, a mere seven days later, Hernando de Soto finally arrived in what would later become Tampa Bay, Florida. When De Soto arrived, he had brought with him, 13 head of swine. By the time he died three years later, his men had accumulated 700 pigs, not counting those that had been eaten, traded with the Natives, and that had run away (Gillespie 4). Hernando and his men came to North America searching for gold.
Mistakes were made by both parties of the short lived battle. Most of which were completed by the United States army and government. For starters, the United States government had no right to eradicate the Native Americans from their tribes. Attempting to move these people was a bad call and should not have been made. All of the Native Americans that stood up against the government made the right call.
For the next 28 years, the United States government struggled to force relocation of the southeastern nations. A small group of Seminoles was coerced into signing a removal treaty in 1833, but the majority of the tribe declared the treaty illegitimate and refused to leave. The resulting struggle was the Second Seminole War, which lasted from 1835 to 1842. As in the first war, fugitive slaves fought beside the Seminoles who had taken them in. Thousands of lives were lost in the war, which cost the Jackson administration approximately 40 to 60 million dollars -- ten times the amount it had allotted for Indian removal.
I believe that the Indian Removal Act is a step in the wrong direction because we were not treating the Native Americans like human beings, it went against the constitution, and jackson wanted to build a wall to separate. We the Americans treated the Native Americans as if they were animals. Others might says that they were in our land or that we wanted it because the gold there was our gold not their gold. Truth is they did not want it for the gold they wanted it because that is where there ancestors died and are buried there. They were living there so we can 't just tell people that they can not live somewhere and rip them out of their land and
So after all these reasons, the Inca lost their battle against only 168 Spaniards because of their leaders ignorance, the Spaniards military advances, and their use of a very effective ambush. All of these lead to the downfall to the Incan empire. The Spanish came out of nowhere and flanked them without them having any idea what was happening. Atahuallpa rushed into battle without knowing. Plus the Spaniards weaponry and horses.
Forced Move of The Cherokee Nation The forced move of the Cherokee nation was not a correct action taken by the government at that point of history. It was unfair for the Cherokees, most strongly disagree with the treaty, it violated the Cherokee’s rights, and caused many to die. it also failed to follow the constitution It was very unfair for the Cherokees to be removed from their homeland, where their ancestors have lived and made it their home. The Cherokees representatives that agreed to the treaty was only a few, and was elected by the Georgia government, who chose them because they support the removal. “...Sir, that paper...Cold a treaty is not ready at all because it was not sanctioned by the great body of the Cherokee and made without their participation or assent.” Major Wm.
The cultural differences and control over resources between Native Americans and Americans led to a long journey of Native Americans relocating west due to their land being illegally confiscated from them. The overgrowing population of Americans was the cause of the unjust and inhumane treatment of Native Americans in order for them rapidly expand their culture. Still, Native Americans continued to protect their common title of their land and preserve their existence until thousands of them were forced to move west because Americans didn’t follow through with their agreements, taking away their nation and their spirits. “Both congress and the states were eager to make the lands of western tribes available to American citizens, but none had
When the Europeans arrived in North America, many changes came into the lives of indigenous peoples. These changes included things such as new weapons and horses, which made hunting easier, but Europeans also killed indigenous people, treated them as though they were less than human, and took their lands. These immoral things happened because of European desire for riches and glory. Because of this, the European impact on Native Americans should be seen as a moral question. Upon their arrival, Europeans saw indigenous people as heathens because of their religions and their difference in culture.
the British also provided no alternative source of employment to the people who lost their jobs due to the dissolution of the nawab's administration. in addition, the annexation of several indian states was the further causes the britsih to face a rebellion in India. the corruption and inefficiency in the british administration also created further political unrest and the indians surely wanted to get rid of the
The ones that cooperated would be exempt. After that Bacon’s ideas started to spread and the Rebellion had begun. According to Zinn’s point of view, Bacon was not very interested in helping the poor ones, but in killing the Native Americans. As a matter of fact, Bacon himself was not even in the lowest class; he belonged to a new class that started to arise, which was a not so privileged upper class. More towards the end of “Persons of Mean and Vile Condition”, Zinn explains why the Bacon’s Rebellion was so feared, and what new aspect it can give us on America.
