THE LOST COLONY OF ROANOKE There are many theories for the lost colony of Roanoke, but no one knows where they went or what they did.Many have wondered but this is what i learned. Sir Walter Raleigh was one of the first to ask to for a colony in america. He wanted to go to Roanoke. The queen let him travel.When he got there local indians helped them.But a while after they killed the indian chief.Which made it unsafe for them so they left. Their second attempt they asked John white to lead them.When they arrived it was harsh they were running out of supplies so John White said I will go back and get supplies he said “if you are in trouble then draw a cross and if you move write were.So he traveld back to get supplies but his
They also didn’t have any knowledge of preserving foods and making medicine to cure their people, and Champlain saw this as a bit of a threat. He wanted to forge an alliance with the Aboriginals to make sure the Europeans were secure. He sent young Europeans to live with the Aboriginal peoples, and learn their values. He also made amends by joining Algonquin people in war against the Haudensaunee, in
After a number of attempts, the federal Dream Act legislation has still not passed. Despite the difficulty the federal government has had on passing the DREAM Act, several states have taken it on their own initiative to create their own version of the DREAM Act. “Currently, at least seventeen states have laws allowing students who meet specific requirements, regardless of their immigration status, to pay in-state tuition rates at public postsecondary institutions” (Table). Supporters believe the federal DREAM Act will impose significant benefits to both the United States and immigrant populations and will continue to push to get the legislation passed. However, those who oppose this legislation believe it would greatly harm our country
My thoughts on this week show is that I believe that Lewis and Clark would not have been able to complete their journey with the help of the native people that they encounter while on the journey. To my knowledge, Indian tribes such as the Mandans help provide supplies and sheltering during the winter. The Nez Perce tribe also helped the men buy supplying food. I would have to disagree with “Thomas Jefferson” that was on this week show because he feels that Sacagawea did not make much of a contribution to the journey. But Sacagawea helped obtain horses for the men and translated for them during the expedition.
In the article, Always go to the Funeral by Deirdre Sullivan, he points out the important things that he was taught when he was in the fifth grade. Although some of the things he was taught by his father he didn’t quite like, he still obeyed his father’s rules. I too can relate to Dee when it comes to attending funerals because when I was a sophomore in high school, within my first semester, I lost three close family members. To begin, the first family member to pass was my great grandfather Clarence, he was 97 when he passed due to his colon cancer. I was pulled out of school the day of his funeral and griefed with the rest of my family.
Yet they strove past their limits of painful memories and death to honor and protect their past and future for their people by celebrating what little they had left. The Ponca tribe was one of the few tribes removed not because of white settlers, but because their land was going to be given to another tribe. Not only that, but the journey to the Indian Territory was a poorly thought out plan from the United States government. The Poncas had no good facilities to stay in when they arrived and they had to wait a full year before going to their new territory causing many to die from disease or hunger. They were treated unfairly by the United States; they had a treaty concerning their territory in Nebraska but the United States gave it to the Sioux tribe.
The indigenous people wanted to coexist in peace, as Red Jacket stated, “‘You have got our country but are not satisfied; you want to force your religion upon us…. Brothers … we only want to enjoy our own,’” but the settlers did not want that. Even after the Indian removal act had been declared unconstitutional by Congress, Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren did not enforce the law. This was a time in history when checks and balances was not
Some may criticize that there is no such thing as an “Okinawan Identity” because of the mixture of diverse cultures. The Lack of appreciation of the traditional language is what challenges younger generations to keep interests; and as soon as the last speaker of the language dies, Okinawa will no longer be a unique part of the country
This language, because it is not dead yet, it is possible to save and secure the dialect from death. There are many ways to save a language from language death. Due to UNESCO’s research in 1991 there was 50000 speakers of the language of Arvanitika in Greece, now speakers of Arvanitika use them in order to speak among them but they do not use them with the younger generation because they do not know the language as a result they do not understand the language and also they feel that they do not need it. (Unesco
But these complex and varied citizenship laws can also give rise to statelessness. In some countries, citizenship is automatically lost after prolonged residence in another country. These nationality laws often tend to be discriminatory in nature too. In a significant number of countries only men can pass the citizenship to their children whereas the laws in 27 countries do not let women pass on their citizenship. If a woman from one of these countries marries a foreigner her children can end up
Some other new obstacles that many can face today is not being able to raise their children while helping them succeed in school, having a securing home or job and not having transportation. Even though some come with a visa they still don’t get the same opposites as a normal American citizen would have. A visa is extremely different from getting a citizenship or a green card. A visa is “an endorsement on a passport indicating that the holder is allowed to enter, leave, or stay for a specified period of time in a country” (Dictionary.com) while citizenship is “the position or status of being a citizen of a particular country” (Dictionary.com). A green card is a permit allowing a foreign national to live and work permanently in the U.S. (Dictionary.com).
A pipeline would separate the Sioux tribe, potentially damage the casino industry, our source of entertainment and many tribes source of income. The government’s mishaps don’t stop with casinos. The Sioux do not deserve for their water to be contaminated. Originally the government intended for the pipeline to pass through Bismarck, yet the risk of contamination in states capitol lead to relocation through reservations (Sidder). Unlike the BP oil spill that affected many animals, an oil spill of the North Dakota Access Pipeline would affect humans.
The penny cost 2x as much as it really is. 700 million dollars isn 't worth the one cent piece, we could be using this money on charity or something else important. Though the penny has been part of the U.S for more than a hundred years, it should not be minted anymore because of the high production cost and other countries such as canada don 't even bother using them at all. People argue that the penny should stay because of its long time and history with the US, but what they don 't know is that the penny cost more than 2.4 cents per penny. “The US Mints budget in 2010 was 27.4 million dollars in penny production”(source 1).
