The Trail of Tears was a really dark time for the Native Americans. Which is a topic many of us skip over or don’t go into much detail about. Knowing what we have done wrong in the past helps us not to make the same mistake again and guide us as a nation. The Trail of Tears was like the Holocaust to all the Native Americans. There were all these white Americans that wanted the land that the natives had owned and president Andrew Jackson decided to use the Utilitarianism model which wasn’t the best option in this case.
The Trail of Tears was named so because of its devastating effects to the Cherokee nation. They were removed for one main reason, so their land could be used by the white men. Nobody had the right to take away their land. The land had been theirs since before the Europeans came and now they were being forcibly removed from it. On top of that, soldiers forced them to travel in the winter, causing thousands of Native Americans to die.
The Apache were a strong, fierce, war-like nation, native to the arid deserts of the Southwest (specifically Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma). And since 1492, the discovery of the Americas, the Apache fiercely opposed Spanish, Mexican, and American invasions. Arguably, they are most known and most remembered for their association with the Spanish, Mexicans, and Americans; the relationship between the Apache and the settlers that led into the Mexican and American conflicts and the aftermath of that, by how westward expansion in the United States affected the population of the Apaches and then how the laws during the 1800s influenced the forced removal of the Apache. These reasons show the relationship the settlers had with the Apache.
