The killing of their leader as well as another Hutu man was now dead. The Hutu people had felt the Tutsis had tried to over throw them too many times and shown too much disrespect to their people. The Tutsis treated the Hutus as if they were their political props to prove their points. The Tutsis treated the Hutus like objects not people, killing whoever was in there way of superiority and power. Therefore, the Hutus final reason and motivation for revenge was to fight for their rights as people and not political
The same hostilities were found in New Mexico, Naranjo a priest led a revolt against the Spanish colonists. The natives secretly planned an attack against the Spanish, to their misfortune the secret of their attack was out and impulsively carried out an attack. Spanish priests, women and children were killed, the governor was their next target but he escaped with his life. Under the orders of Naranjo the natives burned the Spanish churches and everything that pertained to Christianity, even seizing cultivated lands of the Spanish back as their own. The natives were tired of the Spanish rule over them and sought to drive out the inhabitants and their faith to restore their religion and way of life once more.
However, according to Father Junipero Serra, the natives were by far in the wrong with their actions to destroy the mission (Chan/Olin, 60). This argument is obviously one sided, but if the website for the San Luis Rey Mission mentioned the fact that the natives sometimes did not like the fact that they were being taken over by a force that merely controlled them with guns, it would most definitely affect their tourist income in numbers. In addition, the mission website is less likely to mention the fact that there were punishments for those natives who did reject the work or conversion to Catholicism. As mention in Francis F. Guest’s essay, “Cultural Perspectives on Death and Whipping in the Missions”, there were many instances in which the punishments for natives was excessive and superfluous. “There is incontrovertible testimony that delinquent Indians were whipped, sometimes excessively, by the padres”
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
The article Christianity and the Roman Empire by Dr. Sophie Lunn-Rockliffe reads, “Thus the classic test of a Christian’s faith was to force him or her, on pain of death, to swear by the emperor and offer incense to his images, or to sacrifice to the gods.” This passage explains the terror of the Romans, for they felt that the Christians were deliberately jeopardizing the Roman Empire by angering their gods. There are many more reasons as to why Christians were persecuted by the inhabitants of Rome, but these are the major elucidations. The persecution of Christians in the Roman Empire started to die down around 250 A.C.
The Southeast covers generally the same tragic situations that took place with the tribes in that region.

Whitmire states that white settlers came to, “the Indian's homes, drove off their cattle, horses, and pigs, and they even rifled the graves for any jewelry, or other ornaments that might have been buried with the dead” (Whitmire). Whitmire shows how the Cherokees were oppressed by the fact that not only were the white settlers forcing them to leave their homes, but that they also destroyed their ancestors burial sites for their riches which was both disrespectful as well as mortifying for their family
He saw the torture the Natives received by the Spaniards. Las Casas tried to convince people to change their ways with the natives. He fought slavery and violence that was brought among harmless people. When the Spanish arrived, they encountered the Natives. The Spanish, however, seemed to ignore the fact that the Natives were gentle people.
The first reason that the shows extinction of the Aztec race was unavoidable was because of the diseases like smallpox that the Spanish brought with them. The reason they bought this because of the bad conditions on the ship and some people even died on the ship. The people who did
The relationship between the Spanish and the Aztecs was a correspondence that steadily declined as the Spanish conquered and destroyed the Aztec Civilization. The relationship was one that was bound to fail because of the naive nature and seclusion of the Aztecs along with the greed and barbaric attitude of the Spaniards. The Spanish ravaged through the new world and along with them the brought destruction and disease; with no remorse for the deaths they caused. The Aztecs, naive and uneducated, were overly trusting of their supposed “pale-faced gods.” The combination of these factors is what lead to a destructive association between these two incompatible groups.
One example, and the beginning, of the hostile relationship is in 1637, when English settlers and their native allies set the Pequot tribe’s huts ablaze, and shot the survivors.
The North and South American settlers viewed the Native population with the same relationship goal in mind; to enslave them and earn riches and glory along the way. The North American settlers didn't come from Europe with friendly intentions, rather to become more wealthy and powerful. They wanted more land as well, to add to their resources. “The settlers has appeared on the scene with two objectives in mind with regards to the Indians: secure their land and convert them to Christianity.”
