The settlers came in with the belief that they were settling a "new land," and failed to recognize or accept the Native Americans rights to their land, culture, and way of life. The white man believed that the Native Americans were not a part of the larger American society. The settlers viewed it as their right to settle on the land and push forward with development. The white man put a demand on the Federal government to push the Native Americans aside to make room for progress
After the massacre the Commissioner of Indian affairs tried to prove they were not put in situations that forced them to rebel/ run away (refused food; starved, not provided with warm proper clothing they were promised in the treaty, driven off their lands and forced to stay confined on a reservation that wasn’t theirs). 5. Why did A Century of Dishonor strike so positive a chord among readers, including U.S
Father Jose Altimira , who was stationed at Mission Dolores in San Francisco, favored shutting down that mission and the San Rafael hospital mission. His suggestion was to build one further north where the weather was better. He felt that the poor health of many of the Indians was caused by the foggy, damp weather. His request was denied by Father Presidente Vicente Francisco de Sarria, the chief administrator of the California Missions. Many in the diocese felt the era of the mission was coming to a close.
In conclusion the High Court established that native title should be wiped out from pastoral leases. In order to do so the governments referred to the Native Title Amendment Act 1998 (Cth) and the Racial Discrimination Act to determine the outcome. Within the Native Title Amendment Act 1998 there was a 10 point claim which was campaigned against by the National Indigenous Working Groups. As a result to this campaign and support from the broader communities within Australia amendments were made within the Native Title Act to ensure justice and fairness was demonstrated towards Indigenous
Despite their presence, the British still claimed the land as their own even though they knew that there were natives already living there. This caused serious conflict between Indigenous Australians and the British, leaving the Aborigines dispossessed of their land and an alarming decrease in their population. Well, evidence shows that the British arrival wasn’t settlement but an act of invasion.
The Aboriginal communities presented petitions to challenge the Act concerning the Aboriginal land and resources rights. They also wanted to be part of the leadership of the country from which they were alienated from for decades. The government usually responded by enacting very harsh legislative measures and amendments to the Indian Act and prevented the communities from hiring any lawyers to challenge the Aboriginal rights in the court. With the continued uprising of Aboriginal political organizations and protests in the 1960s, a proposal was drafted, the white paper, which proposed that the Indian reserves should be eliminated and the collective rights of the status Indians should be replaced with greater integration of the Canadian community. In 1969, the government agreed to look over and discuss the specific claims and recommendations voiced over by the Indigenous
“Sorry…mate?” As a bystander, it is outrageous to see how much effort the Australian government is putting into Aboriginal affairs even after Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s public apology to the Stolen Generations in 2008. It was necessary for the Australian government to acknowledge their past wrong-doings and apologise for the generation of stolen children whose families had been forcefully torn apart. Thinking back, this bleak moment in the Australian history was the result of an official government policy from 1909 to 1969 which allowed authorities such as the Aborigines Protection Board (APB) to remove children of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander backgrounds from their birth families. They were to be fostered or adopted into another
They also offered to join as allies against neighboring tribes. But conflicts arose over land disputes and other disagreements, and the English ended up angering the Powhattans. The English now viewed this tribe, and other tribes around them as a mere obstacle in the way of their plans for settlement. War broke out and the Indians were eventually driven from their native lands and forced to move farther west. The English were now left to fend for themselves with no allies, just
In 1969 the federal government introduced a White Paper that proposed to eliminate Indian status: “The policies proposed recognize the simple reality that the separate legal status of Indians and the policies which have flowed from it have kept the Indian people apart from and behind other Canadians. The Indian people have not been full citizens of the communities and provinces in which they live and have not enjoyed the equality and benefits that such participation offers.” The federal government sought to surrender responsibility for Aboriginals to the provinces, repeal the Indian Act, and transfer control of lands to individual Aboriginals. But the policy was fundamentally flawed: it ignored more than a century of discrimination and handicaps that the state had imposed on Aboriginals. "Full and equal access for individuals of aboriginal descent to the democratic rights and
Land is the very heart of Dreaming and is vital for many rituals and ceremonies” Macquarie revision guides- HSC studies of religion (second edition) P. haywad et al, Macmillan Education Australia Pty Ltd, south yarra, 2007, pg. 10. With reference to the above quote and to at least two other sources, apart from you class notes, discuss the effects of dispossession on kinship and aboriginal culture at the time of white settlement (1788-1815) White settlement in Australia inevitably resulted in aboriginal communities being dispossessed of their land and hence their entire lifestyle and culture.
