We decided to go ahead and make the seventeen-mile trip back to the old abandoned mine after we all dried off. By that time it was pushing around three o’clock and we had a hard hour’s ride ahead of us. So we loaded up, and began the journey back to the mine. Everything was going great besides some tricky washouts we had to cross and a tree we had to cut that had fallen across the path, which were no match for the four-wheelers of course! Well, we finally made it back to the old mine around four-thirty.
Everyday we live in fear of relocation. Our people are dying from disease due to lack of food and supplies. We are lacking in food because the government is building in our forests and killing our game for pleasure and food alone. Our resources grow low but there are only certain times a year we are able to safely move ourselves. This is not one of those times so our old are cold and dying and our young are hungry and angry.
The storms and floods had taken all the good soil in the 1930s. People survived off of beans, rice, corn, and milk. Many slaughtered the cattle for meat because there was no market. All around the world people were living in horrible living conditions and there were not many jobs for those in need. Over 25% of people were unemployed and houses were being foreclosed
Some of the things that Mary had to do in order to survive went against her religion and her morals. The Indians ate strange foods, traveled every day, and live in wigwams. “The first week of my being among them, I hardly eat any thing; the second week, I found my stomach grow very faint for want of something; and yet it was very hard to get down their filthy trash; but the third week, though I could think how formerly my stomach would turn against this or that, and I could starve and die before I could eat such things, yet they were sweet and savory to my taste” (Rowandson 79). She calls their food “filthy trash”, which is an indicator of how she felt about their foods and ways of life. “Yet they were sweet and savory to my taste” is a sign that she is giving in to the savagery.
I think animal have the same problem like me if they don’t have food to eat. Because either human or animals, they both need food to alive. I remember a fable that I heard when I was a little. Long time ago, there were a tiger, a pig, fox, and a deer which were friends. One day, the woods where they lived was drought for a long time so all plants and vegetable faded and springs were dry and exhausted.
The colonist came smart and built a fort as quick as possible to rescue them from the Indians. Their fort spread about an acre apart, with the walls as tall as two people. Aside from the attack of Indians, also came the attack of nature and wildlife diseases. Many died of starvation, and salt water poisoning. Many turned into desperation, while having no choice but to eat their own horses, cats, and dogs.
6 Nov. 2012.. I used this website because it seemed very credible and accurate based on other thing that i researched relating to the topic 22.Norton, R. J. "The Accomplishments of President Abraham Lincoln." The Accomplishments of President Abraham Lincoln. N.p., 29 Dec. 1996.
Their biggest food supply was the buffalo. The animals provided the Indians with basic necessities. The necessities were food, clothing, shelter, and weapons. The reason the buffalo became scare was “after the Civil War, the herds were cut down by professional hunters, who shot 100 an hour to feed railroad workers, and by wealthy easterners who killed them for sport” (Digital History). This inability to locate the big game was very detrimental to the Indians especially during the winters, when they needed them the most.
And they are starving.” (pg.63) The colonies were forced to cannibalism. “One provident man chops up his wife and salts down the pieces. Others dig up graves to eat the corpses.” (pg.63) there was absolutely no means of food for the colonies this winter. They surly had no common sense; I mean really, how do you let almost your entire civilization die off? Could they not have planted their own food or hunted some game?
The introduction of the Indian Removal Act saw numerous tribes displaced from their ancestral homes time and time again, and while the rest of America prospered, they were forced onto small plots of land, and not even formally recognised as citizens of their own country. The buffalo which they depended on were slaughtered, causing widespread starvation, and every time they retaliated against this appalling treatment it only served to further reinforce unfair stereotypes which still haunt them to this day. Hopefully, by examining the mistakes of the past, people will avoid repeating them in the
