A lot of Euro-American miners were coming into the Indian Territory to mine or settle. The government couldn’t do much about the situation because there were too many people coming into the territory and there was gold on the land. The tension between the Indians and Whites grew. Slowly the Natives started to get out of control. They started to steal farmers and ranchers cattle and some cases they would also burn ranches down.
Even though the Spanish did enslave them like the Europeans, they had much more freedom after their time had been up. Also, within the colony, the had some rights to themselves. The French treatment of Indians was much like the Spanish treatment, with a few exceptions. The French were keen on treating the Indians with respect and dignity for their own personal benefit. With their rather minute population, the key to a successful settlement was the humane relationship between the French and the Indians.
French explorers came to the New World seeking gold as well. There was a bond between the Church and the Capetian kings (Jaenen vii), so evangelization was a goal for the French crown. Assimilation was the main strategy for both the French church and state (Melzer 169). The French wanted close contact with the Native Americans. The French said that they would form “a same people and same blood” (Melzer 169).
-- France desired to prevent the growth of British ascendancy in India not in order to replace her but to re-establish a fair balance between the trading activities of the different European powers”(26). After the seven-year war from which Britain emerged victorious making them the worst chief Imperial power (Encyclopedia Britannica). France lost most there territory in India and was left with 5 areas according to the Treaty of Paris. By 1761 France’s influence and trade was restricted to the areas of Chandernagor in Bengal, Mahé on the Malabar Coast, and Pondichéry, Karikal and Yanaon in the current Tamil Nadu. Despite the French East India Company success in both inter- and intra-continental trade, the French East India Company never tried to regain its former status.
Soon after this, the French surrender Fort Frontenac on Lake Ontario, destroying their ability to communicate with their troops in the Ohio Valley, which if you remember was the area of land which was a major part of starting this war. Seeing that the war is not going in favor of their side the Iroquois, Shawnee and Delaware Indians make peace with the British. This becomes a heavy blow on the French. They were already outnumbered but, now their Allies are beginning to disband. The British continue to take fort after fort eventually capturing fort Niagara, the French pull out of that area which includes Crown Point, the last stronghold of the French on the western frontier, which means they now control the entire western frontier.
One cannot help but ask how did the settlers have the right to occupy lands that original belonged to the Indians let alone conduct war there? War was simply used as a subterfuge for plundering wealth and gold and bringing it back to Europe. “The Indians were the legitimate possessors of their lands, and one could not morally wage war on them if they refused to be converted”. Between 1524- Franciscan missionaries started to arrive and thanks to them, much of the Indians history has been preserved. (Peter J
Nevertheless, they showed no resistance in adopting the new agricultural techniques from each other. They readily exchanged the domestication of insects, animals, and plants. For example, the Indians were not familiar with the European animals such as pigs, horses, and cows while the Settlers acquired vegetables and different fruits from the Native land. These healthy exchanges caused the future agricultural developments in both worlds (Moran, Neil Remington, and Sarah). The Indians made good use of the opportunity.
Many Spanish colonials didn’t want to recognize the Indians as human. They wanted to take control of the people and the land that they “discovered”. Under the first set of Spanish laws in the New World, Native Americans were enslaved and forced to work for the colonials. They had no freedom. However, many Spanish friars realized that what their people were doing was wrong.
French Indochina belonged to the French colonial empire, being a federation of three Vietnamese regions, Laos, Cambodia and Guangzhouwan. As a consequence of colonization and decolonization, Vietnam has gone through many spatial changes as settlements, agricultural production systems and infrastructural changes.
The Army fought them at a certain disadvantage,the Army had to learn to become half indian before it could fight the indians on anything like even terms. We seem not so much to have coveted the lands in the trails than for the soil.The Indians themselves had lived there all their lives,had conquered their environment and were happy in it. They made a bitter fight,which they can’t be blamed for.The Indians was protecting what had been theirs for a long time. What was they supposed to, just lay down and let harm be done to their families and friends . wouldn't you defend what was yours from someone trying to unlawfully take something of
