The Lakota Indians The Lakota is a tribe located in the northern plains of America. They are related to the Sioux by culture, Language, and history. The Dakota are also a related tribe to the Lakota. They are known as Teton or also western Sioux. In the 1640’s the Lakota stayed closer to the Sioux.
American actress Estelle Parsons once said, “It is so important to get respect for what you do and at the same time give it;” respect is also one of the twelve virtues of the Lakota Nation. Respect is one of the revered and more important values that Native Americans still live by today. Because they hold a significant place in Lakota society, special respect is to be given to elders. Both children and adults must give respect to others to be able to receive respect.
Dakota (Sioux) The Sioux used horses to catch their main food source buffalo. They grew very few crops, and mostly traded weapons and meat with other tribes for corn.

The terms of the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868 placed the Lakota on one large reservation that encompassed parts of North Dakota, South Dakota, and four other states. After the United States defeated the Indian tribes in the Indian Wars of the 1870s, the US States reclaimed 7.7 million acres of Sioux’s sacred Black Hills and moved the Teton Sioux to Government broke the Lakota’s original reservation into several smaller ones. Not only did the U.S. government reduce the Indians’ acreage, it also splintered the Tribe. In 1889 the United the Standing Rock Reservation. Although the Reservation originally occupied 2.7 million acres, subsequent land confiscations by the government reduced the Reservation’s size to 1 million acres.

The Sioux culture and day to day life was changed by the European settlers and the United States government, and for the most part the changes were negative. The government tried to stifle the Sioux culture and religion with schools for children, and force. Many Sioux were forced onto reservations where it became harder for them to live their lives as they normally would. The American history up until then had been Native American, but when the Europeans came, the course of history changed. The Native Americans, particularly the Sioux Tribe, were influenced and affected by the European settlers who formed the U.S. government, which changed American culture and history.
The Sioux tribe was one of the most known powerful tribes living in which they originally came from Missouri in the 1800’s. Not to mention,many things happened when they came to Nebraska. During their early years, transportations are a way for them to follow the path of the buffalos,as a matter of fact, they had horses and built boats to keep them going. For example, they were also known to be farmers as well as hunters. The tribe made an influence on the Westward expansion and made war between the Americans,so many people wonder how the Americans influenced the tribe and where are they now.
European Images of Native Americans The European drawings of the Native Americans gave the visual that life along the Eastern Woodland was very tough. Although it seemed that way, it also seems as if they were adapted to a tough lifestyle making it seem easy and peaceful. Anything that was desired they worked hard for it. Along with working hard they also took the time out to have fun, according to their ceremonial dances.
The use of shading of the painting, along with sa was quite interesting because the half with the settlers was vibrant and colourful, and as it moved towards the right, the painting becomes darker, with less intensity. It’s most likely supposed to display good and evil, the light, happiness, and the dark, cold, depression. The native Americans are displayed as vile and dark, something that needs to be moved. We already knew that during the 1800s, the Native Americans were being moved to reservations. This painting shows them being moved farther and farther west, away from the settlements, in what was called the “Trail of Tears”.
The Sioux warriors were well armed they fought using a variety of weapons ranging from spears to guns. In the past, they used clubs, tomahawks, shields bow and arrows, spears and axes. Once the Europeans arrived in the Great Plains they brought to the Indians guns and horses to get them around and guns to hunt more efficiently.
The nature of war has always been a cruel and inhumane part of our world and its history. Many themes, such as desperation and trickery, play a large role in the development of the short story, “All The King’s Horses” by Kurt Vonnegut. However, what is most particularly interesting is how Vonnegut portrays war the story and is represented the most throughout the novel is the theme of how destructive war is and how impactful it can be on many lives. Firstly, Vonnegut often subtly uses symbolism and allegories in order to portray the theme of war within the short story.
