Without federalism, all branches of government would abuse their power over many political decisions.
Dawes Severalty Act De Juan Evans-Taylor Humboldt State University Abstract The Dawes Act of 1887, some of the time alluded to as the Dawes Severalty Act of 1887 or the General Allotment Act, was marked into law on January 8, 1887, by US President Grover Cleveland. This was approved by the president to appropriate and redistribute tribal grounds in the American West. It expressly tried to crush the social union of Indian tribes and to along these lines dispose of the rest of the remnants of Indian culture and society. Just by repudiating their own customs, it was accepted, could the Indians at any point turn out to be genuinely "American."

Since its beginning, the United States of America has gradually and steadily expanded the oversight and power of its own federal government. This expansion has resulted in a plethora of effects on the relationship between local state government and the federal government, both negative and positive. However, the increased impingement from the federal government onto the constitutional rights of local and state governments has created an imbalance. A major part of this imbalance has stemmed from the advent and imposition of unfunded federal mandates. This increasing implementation of unfunded federal mandates over the years has begun to stir up trouble between the states and the federal government.
All discrimination, racism, and stereotyping against the Native Americans, was bound to happen the day Columbus landed in the Caribbean; after that it just went downhill. The English and French colonists joined the Spanish, and their colonization of the north-west was what led to the plight of the native population. Then the treaties started rolling over the native peoples, which at first seemed like good agreements, but then the treaties began to be violated. Some of the worst violations were made against the Cherokee Nation.
