The Catawba was a group of indians that lived on the border of North Carolina near Rock Hill, South Carolina. They called themselves the “river people” because they knew how to live around the water and how to use it to make their lives easier.

In the 1930s the federal government had put in place a set of policies know as the Indian New Deal. Natives of the Northwest Coast were encouraged to adopt governmental forms and constitutions to establish relations. The government had the final say in how tribes were coordinated, they controlled who sat in chairs of power and how things would be running. Following the 1950s federal policies towards the Indian people continue to vacillate. During the last past two decades of the twentieth century the tribes of Washington have been still making attempts to have the terms of the 1850 honored by the state and federal governments mostly in regards to fishing rights, to bring economic stability to the Native community through the utilization of

Taiaiake Alfred discussed targeting the new generations who are impressionable and open to change to gain power by spiritually accepting the warrior path, the spirit of wasáse, to ultimately combat colonial attitudes. The hierarchical structure of society and the feelings of living in a third world nation can be reversed by embodying “the spirit of the ancestors who went to war against the invaders [in a] compelling and honourable [manner]”. To effectively find true peace Native Americans have to become self-sustaining from any governmental aid, including food, land to live on, and other survival necessities.

Every remaining part of the buffalo had some sort of purpose. It was a lesson learned early on in life to never waste a part of an animal.
Alcatraz was converted from a symbol of imprisonment to a representation of tribal unity and sovereignty. The useful and peaceful, yet irrepressible tactics used by Indians generated media attention, which in turn engendered social support for the movement ultimately ending in the inability of the American government to further ignore the discrimination towards the Indian nation. Furthermore, the occupation became a precedent for additional movements to take place and to seek further improvements of Indian Equality and representation.
