The Dawes Act of 1887, some of the time alluded to as the Dawes Severalty Act of 1887 or the General Allotment Act, was marked into law on January 8, 1887, by US President Grover Cleveland. This was approved by the president to appropriate and redistribute tribal grounds in the American West. It expressly tried to crush the social union of Indian tribes and to along these lines dispose of the rest of the remnants of Indian culture and society. Just by repudiating their own customs, it was accepted, could the Indians at any point turn out to be genuinely "American." This paper will give an overview of the act and how it impacted the Indigenous community into becoming

The Amish are a community of people that nobody knows much about, but everybody wants to learn more about. In her essay “Becoming Literate: A Lesson From the Amish,” Andrea Fishman attempts to outline some of the principles of Amish culture and the way that the Amish raise their children. Her uncertain focus leads the reader to a whirlwind of thoughts while reading this essay and could confuse many readers that are paying close attention to her content. Fishman bases her essay around differences between the Amish child and the mainstream child and goes into detail about how each child is raised learning to read. She attempts to discredit the way that Amish children are taught to read, yet also praises the Amish and how they bring up children. Trough unfocused content about Amish reading strategies, Fishman fails to convey that children of all lifestyles grow up reading the world.
One of the biggest dilemmas that they face is the redirection of familistic living. Asian and Mexican Americans have traditionally lived in homes with generational members all under one roof. Family members did not live in separate homes neither did they practice “living the nest” manners as native Americans do. Children are encouraged to live at home until they found a spouse and were ready to marry. And even then, mother and father in-laws lived with the newly weds and sustain a household compromise of many generations with traditional cultural norms.
After Thomas Jefferson purchased the Louisiana Territory he commissioned the Corps of Discovery which was led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark.We were on a fact finding mission to find a Northwest Passage, become friends with the Native Americans and tell them that America now owns the land, and collect information about plants and animal. The trip began in May of 1804 from St. Louis traveling to the Pacific Ocean and in September of 1806 we returned to St. Louis.
October 1, 1734 marks the date that Chickasaw tribe was attacked. This battle lead to the answer of how the paint horses got there markings. It all started when the Chickasaw tribe invaded the camps of the Cherokee Indians, and abducted the wife 's and kids of the Cherokees. The Chickasaw men were envious of the Cherokee men for their ability, to create strong families; considering, the Chickasaw men were unable to marry, due to a curse set upon them by the artisans in 400 BC. If the Chickasaw men wanted to break this curse they were to abduct the families in plain sight from the Cherokee men.
Chief Pontiac is a Native American that is important to the United States’ history. He was a part of the Ottawa tribe and led the American Indians to a revolution also known as the Pontiac War or Pontiac’s Rebellion, which was against the British when they first came to America. He wasn’t afraid to die for his rights. He believed that they all had rights to live in America and to live how they wanted to live. I chose him for my Native American Research because he was a courageous Native American hero.
In America today it is hard for certain families to make a living and to keep a job. College is very expensive and not many people can afford to go to college. And when it comes to finding a job that pays enough to support a family and gives you the hours you want so that you can still spend time with your family is nearly impossible. Family time is very important to sustain a healthy, strong relationship with all the members of your family. Divorce is very common when both parents work and never have time to spend time together. But money makes the world go round and if you don’t have any then you are left out to dry.

Leah begins the book as a little girl who follows in her father’s footsteps, she craves his approval. As Leah grows older she makes her own opinions’ about what is important to her and learns from those around her that it
A person’s culture is their way of life. From a young age, we learn to act within the norms of our culture and to be truly ethnocentric. What if one day someone came into your life and told you everything you were doing your entire life was wrong and stupid? Brian Moore’s Black Robe, tells the story of Laforgue, a Jesuit priest from 17th Century Québec who travels to an unfamiliar land called New France. Laforgue’s goal is to convert Algonquin Native Americans into God fearing Christians. Laforgue faces many cultural misunderstandings with the Natives along his journey; he finds the most difficulties understanding the native’s concept of death, why they value dreams, and overcoming ethnocentrism.
The name "Seminole" came about from the tribe's original name of yat'siminoli meaning "free people". That was the name the Seminoles had referred to themselves as because of their refusal to be conquered and converted by the "white man". The Seminole Tribe has long had a unique history with both the land of the Southeastern United States, and with the government of the United States. Their relationship with the land has been drastically altered as the result of three Seminole wars which displaced and relocated the Seminole tribe. As a result of the persecution by President Andrew Jackson, members from a variety of tribes in the Southeast United States began migrating into Spanish Florida to seek refuge. All who migrated into Spanish Florida

Time management, lack of discipline, less direct contact, and less accountability and feedback from peers and educators are all ways that show that virtual schooling is not the best choice of education. Traditional education makes sure that students are able to learn from structured schooling. Although virtual schooling may have advantages, it does not always help students get the results they want.
To those living in British America in the 1700’s, religion was a central fixture of everyday life. One’s denomination was intrinsically tied up in one’s ethnic and social identity, and local churches in the mid-Atlantic depended upon the participation and donations of their parishioners to survive. However, as the 18th century progressed, poorer farmers and ministers across the diverse sects of colonial America came to resent the domination of church life by the upper class. In a parallel development, a split had grown between the rationalists, who were typically wealthy, educated and influential men who represented the status quo, and the evangelicals, who disdained the impersonal pretention of the rationalists and promoted a spiritual and
In this field observation I attended a catholic mass of a friend’s church. I was born in a Christian family and never thought that I would ever attend a Sunday catholic mass. I only have one friend who still attends a church, a catholic church. I attended this mass with my friend Paul and his family who are Pilipino. Paul was nice enough to let come to his church to be an observer and a bit of a participant. I wanted to know more about what happened at a Catholic Church mass and what it meant to the catholic community. In addition, the church is located on Vinland and Stagg in Sun Valley, and the church is named, our lady of the holy rosary.
