When His tribe was pushed farther west by white settlers, Tecumseh became angry and took many raids to against whites on the frontier. With the idea of an Indian Confederation, he proposed that all the tribes should stick together and refused to sell land to whites unless all the tribes agreed. The large tribal confederation had known as the Wabash Confederacy that tried to repel the American settlers from their region.
In European religion they believed in Christianity and in only one god who was responsible for everything. European’s viewed the religions of both Native American and Africans as savage and crud. They disregarded their beliefs and believed that their religion was the only right one and anyone else who believed in anything else was wrong. The Naive Americans and Africans didn’t understand why the Europeans were doing what they were doing and why they were so disrespectful to their gods and religion. With Native Americans and Western Africans land ownership was won through wars or chosen in the belief that their gods had given them the land that they were living on.
Breaking the promises would have shown the Native Americans that the settlers thought little of their intelligence, and also would instil a lack of trust in the settlers, as now every apparently solemn vow to not attack certain areas or to treat the Plains Indians better etc. could now never be taken as the absolute truth and the Native Americans would have spent time wondering what treaty was to be broken and when. The second factor I shall look at will be the US army and its leaders. Men like
The lessons that McNamara teaches can be viewed all throughout the course of history and should be used as a guideline for the future. Lesson One: Empathize with your Enemy i. Columbus’ Treatment of the Native Americans: The Native American people were drastically different than the explorers of the New World. They believed that nobody owned the land; the idea of land ownership didn’t exist in their eyes. Instead of recognizing the Native American World View, Christopher Columbus and his men took advantage of the Indians by enslaving them and subduing them with violence in an effort to acquire land and riches. Clearly, Columbus should have empathized with the Native Americans by respecting their values and negotiating through fair trade rather than violence and deceit.
In 1838, the US army forced the Cherokees from their homelands in the Trail of Tears into Indian Territory. As people moved west and Western Movement pushed on, more and more Indians were removed and eventually they were nearly annihilated from America. Western Movement is often given the stereotype by Americans as a glorious expansion of our brilliant country into the lands of the setting sun. But, this vision is not true. American expansion caused more harm than good.
He did so by leading a group of 150 military men into the Ohio Country and shot French troops when they encountered them. They shot the French Leader.

He feels that with no education the Indians are feel they cannot take care of themselves or their land. Apess goes on to state about the white men claiming of how they are willing to give Indians rights and privileges and he discusses about how they need to protect their property and themselves by being in the Union. This is due to the whites being very overbearing and powerful and distrustful and the Indians would get taken advantage of by the white men. He goes on to talk about how the white men are the “superior race,” but how this could
He had a rough relationship with the Natives Americans. He kicks them out of America and formed an ally with the Cherokee Chief. Who soon betrayed Andrew Jackson and went with the British. Jackson fought them in the war of 1812 and thought they were of an inferior race. He burned their towns and crops and killed women and kids.
The Europeans looked down on the Native Americans and referred to them as “savages” because their society did not match their own. The many different Native American tribes had their disagreements; however they all could agree that the arrival of the Europeans lead to the destruction of their people and cultures. In this essay, I will discuss the arrival of the three major European powers (England, France, and Spain), their different ways in colonizing, and how the conquering of the Americas destroyed Native American societies. I will use evidence from the textbooks, Indians in American History edited by Frederick Hoxie and The World Turned Upside Down edited by Colin Calloway to support my argument. The Natives in America possessed all of the aspects that human beings all over the world incorporated into their societies.
The Indian removal act, that was signed into law by President Andrew Jackson on May 28, 1830, helped destroy Native American culture east of the Mississippi River. The Indian Removal Act authorized President Andrew Jackson to negotiate with the Native Americans for their homelands in exchange for federal territory west of the Mississppi river. In theory, the Native Americans were supposed to leave their homelands voluntarily. Instead, pressure was put on the Native Americans to sign the removal treaties and were forcibly moved, by the government, west of the mississippi river leaving behind their culture east of the mississippi river. Many of the Native Americans suffered from disease, starvation and death because of the forced relocation to the west.
