Eventually, the Armed force stifled the Indians and constrained onto reservations, where they were permitted to administer themselves and keep up some of their conventions and culture. However, as white Americans pushed ever westbound, they clashed with Native Americans on their tribal grounds. A number of these white pioneers saw the proceeded with routine with regards to local customs as brutal and heinous. They trusted that union into standard white American culture was the main satisfactory destiny for Native Americans. This conviction was regularly framed in religious terms; many white Christians contended that lone by surrendering their profound customs and tolerating Christian authoritative opinion could the Indians be "spared" from the flames of hellfire.

The Druids from different tribes all over Britain probably met once a year.
Christianity turned Nwoye’s life around. He broke apart from the Ibo cultural norms, and became a part of a religion with morals and believes he agreed with.

When Obierika confronted Nwoye about why he was with the missionaries, Nwoye replied: "I am one of them" (), showing that his perspective on religion has changed for the better, based on his own morals, and not the clan’s or his fathers. Okonkwo, however, didn’t approve of Nwoye’s religion change.
The relationships between the three major settlers and the Native Americans differed in many ways. All the evidence needed is in the seven documents shown. Each of the documents provides insight to one of the three nationalities. It is fair to assume that the English were focused more on friendship, the Spanish set their eyes on the gold, and the French were insistent on converting the Native Americans to Christianity. Though they may have been cruel to their enemies, the natives were very kind and friendly towards the English colonizers, as stated in Document One.
We all know leaders and followers in our lives, and this story really differentiates how you can either be a leader or a follower in your life, and it’s all up to you. Leaders and followers have different paths in life and one is not always the right path. It is a life lesson to know when to be a leader and when to be a follower.

This paper will be talking about when gender inequality started To happen, why genders can’t be equal, what will happen in the long run (will genders ever be equal?) and some solutions To help make genders equal. This all started off with hunters and gatherers influencing gender inequality, as the men did “man” labor such as hunting and gathering wood and doing all of the hard stuff away from home.

I personally do not believe that syncretism is not a good description of the situation of the native people in North America. The Amerindians had a very different culture, some of which involved sacred rituals, sacrifices, worshiping the earth etc. Although there were many religious similarities between the Christian and native cultures, however the Europeans, which included the Spanish, English and French came and took over the land, gaining control. For example, in Mexico, the priests won the trust of the Amerindians, and took control of educating their children. However, instead of teaching them both Indian and European languages and arts, they only taught them Europeans.
