There were many of them all ages moving by horse, wagon, or walking. This shows Robert Lindneux wants us to visualize the hardship that Native Americans were forced into. The painting was created after the Westward expansion showing that it was not a good idea. William Weatherford, in “Adventures Among Indians”, stated “...my people are all gone--I can do no more than weep over the misfortunes of my nation. Once I could animate my warriors to battle: but I cannot animate the dead.” Native Americans fought back against the United States but many were killed during battle.
The relations between the early settlers and the native Americans were sour from the start of American settlement. The main cause of this bitterness was that fact that the first settlers aka puritans only saw Indians as savages and that the Indians would be never be equal to them, and the start of this conflict was when puritans started seizing native American land for their own use illegally. and even though most native Americans didn 't like the settlers some tribes sided with the settlers in future wars to come. The Pequot war was a long ongoing feud between settlers and some native tribes against the most powerful tribe in Rhode island: the Pequot tribe. and the most important day of this war which changed America was may 26, 1637 the massacre
There was a popular assumption, which can be tied to a quote by General Sheridan , that “The only good Indians I ever saw were dead ones.” This quote captures a popular attitude of Anglo-Americans during this time. Due to the constant struggle for resources between the Native Americans and the settlers, wars between the two were inevitable. The white men wanted the lands that belonged to the Native Americans and they were convinced that, because of what they considered the uncivilized nature of the Native Americans, there was no way they could coincide with the Native Americans. This presumption was due to the biased outlooks that the Anglo Americans had toward Native Americans culture. Due to these attitudes toward the Native Americans the settlers set out to acquire their lands.
The Oglala tribe fought the U.S. army. The Oglala had defeated the U.S Red Cloud was the first chief that had ever beat the army and was also the last to defeat them. During the Lakota war chief crazy horse and chief sitting bull were fighting with him but he did not want to join them in the fight. So he fought by himself.

The sites like: Mato Tipila (Devils tower), Hinhan Kaga (Harney Peak), Mato Paha (Bear Butte), and He Sapa (Black Hills) were all once a sacred site for all native tribes for religious reasons, but the europeans came and took their sacred sites, their land, and their animals, commonly the buffalo. They also massacre more Native
Native American land and culture was impacted greatly by the western expansion of the United States in countless ways. Before the U.S. wanted to expand and take over land in the west Native Americans roamed freely and lived in villages along rivers and streams without disturbance. The Continental railroad had many reasons to do with conflict between Natives and whites. Furthermore people and miners looking for opportunities and gold in the west pushed Natives off of their land and claimed it as their own. This caused the Natives and the U.S. to have many violent battles in desperation to keep their land this caused devastating massacres of Natives.
The War of 1812 was a significant conflict with broad consequences, particularly for the native inhabitants of North America. During the years before the war, the United States began their expansion, creating the destruction of many Native American villages and homes. Due to these actions, during the war, many but not all tribal nations sided with the British because they thought it would stop American expansion. In all, more than two dozen nations participated in the war. In addition to the Lower Great Lakes Indians, led by Tecumseh, and Southern Indians, the Mohawks fought under Chief John Norton to hold onto their lands in southern Quebec and eastern Ontario (Fixico).
The imperial medical model was different than what the Native Americans were used to because it was based on science considering that they utilized medications and vaccinations and it caused the Native Americans to suffer immensely [Lecture 1/23]. Native Americans grew extremely desperate for these vaccinations, specifically for smallpox since the destruction the disease caused was so immense. For example, the desperation is illustrated in an entry of James Pattie’s journal as he recalls himself and fellow prisoner being asked if they had a vaccine [Pattie 1]. This desperation caused Native Americans to be taken advantage of by white settlers. For example many of the medical benefits treaties required the Native Americans to surrender their land in order for vaccinations [Lecture 1/23].
In the song Indian Sunset by Elton John and Bernie Taupin show different ways of how others identity has affected people you love are affected and the ways you act to change your identity. In the song the Indian Tribe is attacked and got attacked in his being forced to leave their area this caused many loved ones to be killed and what the quote leads to is have one soldier of the tribe thought that death would be the best way for peace. “And the red sun sinks at last into the hills of gold. And peace to this young warrior comes with a bullet hole.” ( John and Taupin ) The quote above reflects how different situations evolve or how the outcome end is based on a person's identity. in the quotation you can see how one thought that that was the fastest way to paste because a lot of his loved ones had been killed.

With the first wave of Spanish colonization of the New World, many indigenous peoples were killed and their lands were seized and their way of life was destroyed (Tindall 26-27). When the Spanish showed up, they greatly overpowered indigenous peoples. They had iron, seafaring vessels, firearms, explosives, and swords, with indigenous peoples had copper, dugout canoes, arrows, and tomahawks (Tindall 27). This is immoral because the indigenous peoples would have no chance against the Spanish, and killing the indigenous people was senseless since they couldn’t fight back well anyway. When indigenous people were threatened by people in a village Columbus left behind, they attacked, killing ten people, only to lead to a retaliation that decimated their numbers (Tindall 21).
It was a horrible time for the miners and the railroad employees as they started getting killed left and right. The US was at war with the Sioux Indians now and sent a war hero to Sioux territory. This man was named General Custer and he led the calvary with anywhere between 205 and 230 men depending on the day. Custer was one of those men who had a big head, he loved to brag, and, well, he had the right to since he became the first 23 year old to become a general in the US Army. When he was sent to South Dakota, Custer had one thing in mind and that was to find and fight any Sioux tribe in sight.
