The constitution did not outline specific details for relations with Natives, so as America grew older, the government was left to deal with the Indians however they pleased. As America expanded west in the 1800s, conflict with natives was inevitable. In 1830, Congress passed the Indian Removal Act of 1830, asking the natives to give up their land in exchange for money. Some refused to move off their native land, such as the Cherokees. As a result of this, they were removed and forced to make the journey known as the Trail of Tears.
The Genocide: Trail of Tears/The Indian removal act During the 1830s the united states congress and president Andrew Jackson created and passed the “Indian removal act”. Which allowed Jackson to forcibly remove the Indians from their native lands in the southeastern states, such as Florida and Mississippi, and send them to specific “Indian reservations” across the Mississippi river, so the whites could take over their land. From 1830-1839 the five civilized tribes (The Cherokee, Choctaw, Seminole, and Chickasaw) were forced, sometimes by gun point, to march about 1,000 miles to what is present day Oklahoma. While making this gruesome travel more than 4,000 Indians died from disease, starvation and treacherous conditions. This travel became known as the “trails of tears”.
Indian Removal Act In 1838, sixty two years after the United States declared independence, white settlers have been pushing into Georgia which was originally the Native Americans land (more specifically the Cherokee tribe’s land). So, the president at the time, Andrew Jackson, created an act called the Indian Removal Act. But, the Native Americans actually took the act to the supreme court and it was declared unconstitutional, although the president didn’t listen. He eventually (somehow) got the act through anyway and all of the Native Americans were forced to leave Georgia on a trail called the trail of tears. The multiple sources regarding the trail of tears and why it happened help the reader shape his (or her) understanding of the event by showing the reader the perspectives of three different people.
In fact, more than fifty thousand people emigrated towards Pike’s Peak in the year 1859 alone. As a result of the increased influx of the whites towards Colorado, the tribal lands of the Arapaho and the Cheyenne were greatly affected. Eventually, the new settlers would push the American Native settlers from the gold mines and this ensured that tensions were rising between the two groups of people. Consequently, the thousands new faces within the territories initially inhabited by the Native Indians between the years 1858 and 1863, the gold rush was thereby increasing the tensions that culminated to constant conflicts between the Native Indians and the white settlers. In contrast, while the white settlers were pushing for the removal of the Native Indians from their tribal lands, some of the Natives such as the Arapaho and the Cheyenne were opting for peaceful resolutions to the conflicts.
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.
The neighbors of Israel want the conflict to stop, but they all have different endings in mind. Some countries would like the Jewish people and the Palestinians to live in peace, while Some would like the Palestinians to control Israel all to themselves. Each country can influence the outcome of the Israeli Palestinian conflict either towards the Palestinian side or the Jewish people side. Israel has seen many rulers over the ages, but the main conflict started in the 1900. The Palestinians had Israel at first, then, the UN made a decision to give some of the land of Israel to the Jewish people, because they thought they deserved their own land.
To begin with, many Africans did not want to engage in violence with Europeans instead they used diplomacy. For example, in documents 1, 2, and 3 they all want to resolve the problems peacefully by making agreements with the Europeans. In document 1, the British government convinced a couple of African rulers to sign the Royal Niger Company form in 1886 to turn over their land because they want to control the Niger River and the areas around it. Through this standard form, Britain and the African rulers come to a compromise of not getting involved in any wars, and the British will give the
The inhumane killing of animals has become a universal problem in which, according to Farm Animal Rights Movement, “Tens of billions of land and sea animals are killed every year just for U.S. food consumption” (FARM). Though mainly killed for food production, there are many instances of animal slaughter due to overpopulation and disease control. The bison population, a victim of the latter, has experienced an extreme decrease in numbers in the United States. Native to North America, bison once covered much of the continent. However, the population tremendously decreased during the 19th century because, according to National Geographic, “Settlers killed some 50 million bison for food, sport, and to deprive Native Americans of their most important natural asset” (National Geographic).
The tribes had lived in cabins and were in different sections. With the introduction of the white man, Cherokee had quickly adopted different ways of life from these people. The search for gold and other resources was the main driver for Cherokee displacement. Of historical note, the movement of the Cherokee people from west to east is known as the Trail of Tears. Many have lost their lives during this journey.
The first reason for ethnic violence in Indonesia was rooted in the decades-long violation of indigenous rights during Suharto rule. The tensions between different indigenous groups were built under Suharto’s regime for over thirty years. After the crumbling of Suharto’s dictatorial authority, there were many ethnic conflicts. One of the conflicts was between the Dayaks and the Madurese settlers in the Indonesian province of Central Kalimantan. When President Suharto was still in power, he started the transmigration program to reduce the strain on resources in an area by relocating people from the crowded central island to less populated provinces (Cochrane, 2001, para.5).
