Life for the Native Americans was much harder during and after the western expansion. For example, the US took land from the Indians leading the formation of reservations, White men almost hunted the Buffalo , an important food source for the Indians, to extinction, and forced the Indians to get rid of their culture. Because of the western expansion, the area of land the Indians could occupy decreased significantly. The government would make treaties with the Indians allowing them to keep a certain area of land, but this would soon be broken ; When the Pacific Railroad Act was passed it stated that wherever a track was laid the company would own any land 200 ft surrounding the track including Indian land ; the Government would make sure that
Between 1785 and 1829, the cultures of Native Americans were greatly changed by American territorial expansion. In particular, the loss of land, trust, and attempted reforms made by whites to "civilize" the Native Americans greatly affected them. American western expansion was the cause of many of the Native Americans' great sorrows. In 1790, most of the land west of the Appalachian Mountains was unsettled. After the War of 1812, the population in the West doubled.
I enjoyed reading your discussion post. The Columbian Exchange was considered to be unique as far as the valuable products, and then it was not so good because of the serious illness took over rapidly. Indians were really in danger at the time of the exchange, because smallpox was affecting them and causing them to decrease in population. Not only was smallpox a hender, but along with syphilis. On the other hand Europe had prosper by gaining medicine, crops, animals, and more.
More commoners in addition had expanded in to the southwestern lands after the Mexican-American War because of inexpensive land, during the time Mexicans had supervised the wide area of the Southwest conserving their chapels and ranches, Americans shortly ordained the Mexicans out of the Region nonetheless those who remained adjusted to the Anglo society. Planters won lands from Mexicans and began Discriminating, by responding Mexicans retaliated by assaulting American cliques, Mexican Americans in California Encountered situations equivalent to those in the south and west. Native American had also faced Prejudice by Anglo Americans. (Doc B) As the numbers duplicated laws were Passed that made titles of Possession problematic for the locals escalation rose in the late
With the arrival of Anglo-Americans, Native Americans lost much more than just their land. Tribes were forced onto reservations, stripped of their culture, wealth and place in society, with no hope of regaining what they owned unless by complete assimilation. For the latter half of the 19th and early 20th centuries, many Anglo-Americans continually pushed for Native Americans to abandon their cultures and “savage” ways. However, despite the many attempts to force Natives into Anglo-American culture, many Native Americans found ways to negotiate with the demands of the Anglo-Americans through mainly social, economic and legal means.
The Incorporation of America by Alan Trachtenberg discusses historical trends and events that led to the rise of America as an industrialized nation. The expansion of the West led to booming corporations that helped grow particular industries. Due to the industrial expansion it led to a growth in a variety of industries and the country itself. The Incorporation of America is an argument that the rise of corporatization in the Gilded Age restructured the idea of American culture.
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.
From 1865 onward, Native American culture was greatly changed by the westward expansion of the united states. Government action effectively destroyed native culture. The US was not justified in its ruthless westward expansion because of the harm dealt to the native people and the change in the American economy. One reason that westward expansion was not justified was the damage done to the native people. When the US really started to settle the west in 1865, we would offer chiefs compensation to move their tribes farther west or on to reservations.
If I was a Native American when the Europeans arrived I was be cautious but also curious. I had no idea that their arrival would eventually disrupt our way of life. Besides these settlers were helpless in that they couldn 't even survive the long winter on their own. However land became the main problem among us. Settler wanted more land for farming and mining.
The rush for gold did not occur until the fall of 1897 when it became sudden and overwhelming. At the beginning of 1896, only several thousand non-Indian miners, traders and missionaries resided in the Yukon. Two years later, the territory was overrun with tens of thousands of newcomers who quickly wrought serious and far ranging changes to the land. The federal government, concerned primarily with maximizing resources extraction, did little to ensure environmental protection. Sadly, and for the most part, Alaska and the Klondike were places to exploit, reap the harvest and ignore the consequences, so few bothered to make observations about the environmental impact.
