They didn’t want to be under the United States government. The book says that only about five-hundred Cherokee to sign the Treaty of Echota. In May of 1838, General Winfield arrived with 7,000 troops in the Cherokee Nation to remove the remaining Cherokee by force. The forced relocation of some 15,000 Cherokee was
Do you like getting kicked out after working hard and establishing a great community. On May 28, 1830 Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act. This act states that all the indians will have to move from their land that they had first into unknown land that is supposedly a huge hunk of the Louisiana just for them with fertile soil and a water source. The Indian Removal Act of 1830 was terrible and unjustified; indians had already build up an amazing society, they were there first, and the americans have already messed with the indians. For starters, the Indians have built up a respectable town.
FIRST DRAFT- Sequoyah and the Cherokee written system The 1800s is the period that will be covered in this paper. Since this is such a wide topic and has a multiple range of subjects it will be broken down. One of the main subjects is going to be on the history of the Cherokee in the 1800s. The other will be on Sequoyah and his writing system created based on the Cherokee spoken language.
Would you disregard the lives of thousands of people for wealth and power? That is what Andrew Jackson did when he endorsed the Indian Removal Act in 1830. This act resulted in the forced migration of several tribes from the southeastern region of the United States. Jackson believed that this was the best way to protect the indians from being scattered and destroyed. He claimed that gaining more land for the white settlers would increase economic progress.
From a historical point of view cultural assimilation happens when a person or a group loses its native culture to the dominant group in their society. On the other hand, cultural pluralism takes place when smaller group within a larger society are able to maintain their culture and belief in which are accepted in the wider society. The process of assimilation is slow and gradual because it take some time to for a person or groups to fully make an adjustment into their new society. In history, the Indian Removal Act of 1830 was passed by Congress under the administration of President Andrew Jackson. The law states that the president can authorize to negotiate with southern Native American tribes for their removal to federal territory west
The Cherokee had several major objections to moving to new locations. The Cherokee wanted to stay instead of moving to a place such as Arkansas because it is “unknown” to them and is already occupied by the Indians. Therefore, the Indians would look at the Cherokee as if they did not belong or be seen as an enemy when the Cherokee meant no harm. Also the Indians were not really supplied by wood and water, which was bad for the Indians because they could not live as agriculturalists, but also bad for the Cherokee because they were worried there was not a lot of land for farming. Furthermore, the Cherokee had major objections because the people around the Cherokees were so different compared to them.
Due to the colonists wanting the best agricultural land possible, the Natives were removed from their homes. The Natives who wanted to protect their land used American law systems in the cases Cherokee Nation v. Georgia and Worcester v. Georgia in an attempt to stop the unjust actions. The supreme court agreed that the native nations were “sovereign nations” and could not be affected by the Georgia laws. Jackson went against this ruling and told the Cherokee Nation to “accept their fate, cede their eastern territory and move west”. The Trail of Tears was an event where seventeen thousand Natives were relocated to the west.
This treaty wasn’t even signed by the leaders of Cherokee nation and over 15,000 Cherokee Native Indians protested the treaty. The 15,000 that protested the treaty got ignored and in 1836 the treaty was ratified. After this happened the Native Indians had two years to voluntarily move out. Two years later only around 2,000 Cherokee Indians migrated and the remaining
Similarly, the Indians had only two options. The first option was to leave their property and move west of the Mississippi river. The second option was to stay and most likely fight the government in hopes that it would allow them to keep their land. In the “Letter to Miss Abigail Parker” Elizabeth Taylor hoped that the Cherokee people would overcome adversity since “white people were once as degraded as them” . For those that decided to stay, their ancestral properties were practically given away in land lotteries.
The Cherokee Indians are unprotected due to their alliance with the British. This Alliance made it so that the Cherokee went against every other Indian tribe and needed to assimilate with the U.S. people to keep ⅓ of their land. The U.S. supreme court orders the army to protect the Cherokee, but Jackson decides against it. Well now every other Indian tribe dislikes them and then they have Georgia is trying to come into their land and take the rest.
The relationship between the Cherokee and the United States has changed over time. When America was first founded, the Americans wanted the Cherokee's land. The Cherokees were forced to leave by the U.S. Army. My evidence from Readworks.org is " In the 1830s, in a famous event know as the Trail of Tears, the United States Army forced the Cherokee to march to Oklahoma." This shows that Cherokee were forced to move.
The Cherokee Indians The Cherokee are a tribe consisting of native americans. They were located by the mountanious souths where a complex river system reached the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf Of Mexico, and Mississipi Basin, in the present day the were located in small portions of georgia,tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Alabama, Virginia and West Virginia. The Cherokee developed extensive relations with many indeginous people and the United States. The Cherokee 's economic conditions were good, they traded with other tribes and with the U.S. Over time a conflict came up which was that Georgia wanted to remove the Cherokees from their land.
When the Europeans began colonizing the New World, they had a problematic relationship with the Native Americans. The Europeans sought to control a land that the Natives inhabited all their lives. They came and decided to take whatever they wanted regardless of how it affected the Native Americans. They legislated several laws, such as the Indian Removal Act, to establish their authority. The Indian Removal Act had a negative impact on the Native Americans because they were driven away from their ancestral homes, forced to adopt a different lifestyle, and their journey westwards caused the deaths of many Native Americans.
In 1829 the Cherokees faced problems such as intrusions from white squatters on their lands in Georgia. There were many of these
On July 17, 1830, the Cherokee nation published an appeal to all of the American people. United States government paid little thought to the Native Americans’ previous letters of their concerns. It came to the point where they turned to the everyday people to help them. They were desperate. Their withdrawal of their homeland was being caused by Andrew Jackson signing the Indian Removal Act into law on May 28, 1830.
