Sitting Bull was considered a great leader and helped shape the way we treat Indians today. Throughout the 1800s the U.S. Government fought against many Indian tribes because of the rich land that promised gold. Sitting Bull and many others “set aside their differences in the face of intolerable abuse by the U.S. Government” (www.californiaindianeducation.org). Sitting Bull fought in wars and united with other tribes to protect his land. Since Sitting Bull worked to preserve his land he allied with the other tribes to fight against the government.
People went hunting not simply because they were in lack of food. Hunting, at that time , became the luxury pleasure of the noble class, especially in Western countries, where the upper class obtained the sole rights to hunt in certain areas of a feudal territory. Nowadays, hunting is known as a kind of sports usually for recreational purpose. Hunting is a hot, controversial issue these days after the killing of Cecil the Lion by a Minnesota dentist, that caused worldwide outrage. Although the strong opposition to hunting comes from the majority of the community, it does have the positive side.

Some women who couldnt bear to watch the women getting raped who farm a piece of land to take up their time. Showing sympathy for any of the Tutsis was not an option because in the back of their minds, the Tutsis are the one who killed their president and they had much respect for him. If you survived the rape, you wouldn't live long because you would be infected with HIV because of the infected men who were "recruited by genocidaires." They then continued to release hundreds of patients who suffered from AIDS to make them into a "rape squad" so they can have a "slow, inexorable death" and also do this to their future Tutsi victims. Rape was not the only abuse they suffered from but also from "Sexual Mutilation" where they had mutilation of their vagina and breasts from machetes, knives, sharpened sticks, boiling water and acid.
The idea of hunting exotic animals in Africa also points to the early 20th century time period as well because this is when colonization and the idea of big-game hunting for the European aristocracy in Africa became popular. Other themes within Lilith also seem controversial and are reflective of the time period. The theme of race shows Europe's interest and fascination with Africa, yet the depiction of the African people is crude and ignorant. It also shows
The Polynesians would wound themselves with a thin sharp implement before rubbing in a coarse black powder, leaving behind a design. The natives called this ritual ‘tataow’ which was then renamed to tattoo by the discoverers. They were perceived as primitive savages. “They all came naked, without any part covered; their faces and bodies in patterns of a blue colour, painted with fish and other patterns.”(Spanish navigator Pedro Fernandez de Quiros) This colonial superiority complex heightened the divide between these cultures and stereotyped the tattoo as uncivilized. It became an emblem of the exotic, a ‘curiosity’, as the indigenous body becoming a representation of artistic colonisation by the European imperial gaze, a way to repress an alternative culture.
Between 1850 and 1900, trophy hunting by early settlers in North America was largely uncontrolled with negative consequences for wildlife populations. Over one million were killed. Wolves nearly became extinct due to over-hunting and poaching. By the late 19th century, following the devastating impact of hunting by early settlers, there was recognition among some hunters for the need to protect the remaining population. During the early 20th century, conservation groups such as the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) and the Wildlife Conservation Society played key roles in the establishment of protected areas in North America.
“Hunting is not a sport. In a sport, both sides should know they are in the game.” (Paul Rodriguez) makes it least that animals are not aware of the fact that they are being hunted. According to Britannica.com, hunting was a necessity in early history. Early hunting for sport was for rulers and their nobles, those having the most leisure and wealth. Hunting is defined as the act of killing or taking down a creature.
Similarly, after the massacre of Cawnpore, Punch issued a very powerful and emotional cartoon depicting the ‘British lion’ vengefully jumping at the ‘Bengal tiger’ after it has attacked a woman and child.1 Mukherjee explains that, [t]he bodies of the British acquired certain dignities in India that were predestined by birth and by the colour of their skin. This was the condition of their domination, of their superiority: rulers and ruled were arranged hierarchically as superior and inferior races, as civilized and uncivilized. And this superiority manifested itself by denying to the Indians a "humanness"; by treating them and conceiving of them as animals. (93) Associating Britain with a lion – commonly represented at the king of the jungle – serves to assert the might of metropolis, as well as its bravery and strength; by opposition, the tiger is debased for attacking defenceless people, and its beastly cruelty is underlined. In this sense, the cartoon symbolically
