Because Jackson wanted to benefit his people who supported him, he caused Native Americans trouble and eventually killed them by moving them forcefully. It is wrong to trouble other ones only because the majority wants to benefit
The destruction of the Sioux’s native land had a great impact on their idea of home. When the Wasichus destroyed pieces of the physical being of their home, they also destroyed the emotional and mental ideas of home as well. The killing of the bison, had a very strong impact on the tribe, as well as when the whites forced the Sioux, to conform to their ideals of living, mainly by forcing them to live in the square houses.
The most powerful people in the south, the KKK were the only ones that could have helped with the reconstruction of the south were not helping matters, that is why there was not and big developments. The south only wanted white people in power because they thought that the freedman were not equal and unfit to be part of any governments. The south wouldn’t even allow the freedmen to attend and public events. In conclusion even though the North had taken the soldiers out of the south and had given up on the freemen, the south has had a lot more problems reconstructing and making the freedman equal. The KKK killed so many people, the powerful government thinking that whites and blacks are not equal, the leaders only wanting white people in power, and how all 1st class men are in the KKK, the south could not have made it any more difficult to change their ways and their
The removal of the native Americans from their land, and the boarding school movement, which is when many native children were separated from their families, stripped from their language and often got abused by white. They lost their home, family because most American thought that Indian should integrated to their white culture, so it 'll be easier for them. The lost of family play a big impact in Native American life from generation to generation. Native America are still one of the United States most economically disadvantaged population. Not only that, most of their land are owned and managed by the federal government.
The Battle of Fallen Timbers was significant because it forced the Native Americans to surrender their land and it warned other Native American tribes against opposing the US. To begin, the Battle of Fallen Timbers was a gruesome battle in which many Native American people were slaughtered by the US Army, lead by “Mad” Anthony Wayne, to stop them from attacking American settlers in order to get them to leave the Ohio River Valley. The gruesome defeat lead to the Native Americans surrendering most of the Ohio River Valley through the Treaty of Greenville. This bloody defeat also served as a warning to other Native American tribes that they did not want to oppose the US government because they did not want to fight the US army. In conclusion,
Societies and cultures such as our own can only advance if we learn from previous mistakes, in this case I am talking about extinct species of wildlife. In the past, people have killed a lot of animals in large numbers as they deemed fit for things that include a stable food source, resource, and to affect other peoples as with the bison. Bolen and Robinson made excellent points on this issue about how Americans waged war on Bison as an attempt to take away the Indian’s food source and how that is why the mighty bison is so scarce today (Bolen and Robinson 10). The bison and other examples in the text are great examples of Europeans overkilling and driving species of animals to extinction for various reasons, but it is very important. If we
Although, they are unified because the people that went into the reserves were mostly lied to, and wanted the best for their family. However, this is debatable, they are less unified because the people that fought for their land mostly got shot and killed because the Europeans had better weapons and they also had guns when the Ojibwe had spears and such, and if they worked together less people could of died, they also lost their way of life during these horrific events and were
This transition was especially tough due to the declining population of the whitetail deer that was their most precious trade item (Calloway, pg. 140). In contrast to the Chickasaws problem, external war affairs were not the main problem for the Choctaw nation. The problem was happening inside of their own tribe with English trade issues being the cause. The traders coming into Choctaw villages were bringing an abundance of rum to trade to the Indians and shorting them on the measurements, leading to social chaos and drunken turmoil inside of the tribe (Calloway, pg.
Their was nothing the native people could do to stay their because of the selfish acts of the white settlers. The settlers did not care for what they had done, they only thought about their themselves. According to the Treaty of Echota the United States had promised the Cherokee tribe food and supplies for one year, but the suppliers were really high for their meat, corn, and grain, so often the Cherokee tribe did not get their rations. They turned to their traditional skills to survive they made moccasins of deer skins for their feet and pots and dishes out of
Some tribes were in fact completely wiped clean, not a one left. Others made it through the war but with only a small percentage still alive (Schultz, n.d.). The effect of war and infectious disease did a huge injustice to this group. Not only death was effecting the Indian, they were still losing land to the new growing nations settlers. They were still not looked upon as equal in any manner, shape, or form; settlers just pushed them and took what was rightfully the Indians.
Or maybe you think of them galavanting through the forest, at harmony with all of nature. Instead we stuck them on reservations full of poverty, alcoholics, where they are trying to save their culture but also keep their culture, with little help from the government. This is why it is such a huge deal to see the Redskins as a football team mascot, mocking and dehumanizing these Indians who have already had enough. This is the type of thing we are going to look back on and feel bad, like how we look back on black country and feel bad and realize our mistakes about them not being human, and treating them so badly. This football team is huge, and many people know and hear about it on a daily basis.
We greatly depended on the buffalo for our food and clothes. Another threat was superior weapons we did not have enough. We also battled diseases. We did not have immunity to diseases and Alcoholism also came to play an important role in destroying our culture. In the year of 1864 The Sand Creek Massacre took place outside of
The slaughter of the bison played a big factor in the Plains Indian’s removal to the reservations. The bison was a way of life for the nomadic tribes of the plains; it was a source of food, shelter, fuel, and a central part of their religion and rituals (Roark 540). While a way of life for the Indians, bison for the white Americans were not. Even though the army took credit for the conquest of the Plains Indians, it was mostly the destruction of the bison herd that the victory is due to (Roark 540). In 1867, more than five thousand Comanches, Kiowas, and Southern Arapahos gathered at Medicine Lodge Creek in Kansas to negotiate a treaty, and signed the treaty agreeing to move to reservations (Roark 540).
My opinion about this chapter is that the writer had different view of Native Americans than what most Americans have today. Americans view the natives as a peaceful people when in fact they fought over land, killed their enemies and torched them they were violent in their own way but they were not as violent as the white people so in my opinion the writer was wrong about saying the Native Americans were as violent as the Americans. An other thing that in my opinion the writer was wrong was by saying the Native Americans were as wasteful by killing the buffalo as the americans were when in fact they were not. There were not as many Natives as Americans so the killing number of participants was lower and when the natives killed the buffalo it was eaten by wolves while in the American side they were not eaten by wolves. In my opinion the author had a different view of the Native Americans than what most people have.My reaction to this chapter was that I learned many new things about the Native Americans that
