Things got much worse when the colonists struck back, but they attacked the wrong Indians, the Susquehanaugs, which caused a large amount of Indian raids to start. Berkeley tried his best to calm things down between the Indians and the colonists, but Bacon would not have any of it. He wanted total control over the attacks on the Indians. He wanted to be able to do pretty much whatever he wanted without any control from anyone else. When he didn’t get it, he rebelled and took off on his own.
As the Natives did not know about 'nations' the Europeans had came from a world where 'Formal institution and military power of a nation or empire governed the relationship between societies'. The Europeans exploration greatly affected the Native Americans in several ways, the major one that wiped out mostly all of there population were the many diseases that they had brought upon them. The Natives freedom basically was taken from them, they where used for their resources and they had to give up their beliefs, their land and basically there way of living because of the
Basically by being controlled by the missions meant they were stuck between the two worlds. They were being urged to give up all their beliefs and values to live the same way as the European’s way of life but they were still being looked down upon and treated like they were a waste of space. In most cases they were not accepted by either the Aboriginal or the European communities. One of the consequence the Aboriginal people suffered in the attempt of being ‘civilized’ by the missions was the serious medical conditions that came from the forced change of lifestyle. The death toll was often very high in the missions because of the new dieses the Aboriginal people were opened up to.
Why did White Settlers find it Difficult to Understand the Culture of the Plains Indians? White settlers from the east found it difficult to understand the culture of the Plains Indians as they had conflicting views on key factors of their lives such as religion, warfare and most importantly, land. The Whites believed their culture and were famously ignorant of what others thought, and so when they discovered the Indians with such extreme differences to their own, it was difficult to understand. Each thought that their own culture was the better of the two; ergo problems began to erupt as time went by. The Plains Indians had different views on warfare to the White settlers.

Despite what were considered good intentions by the government at the time, the Dawes Severalty Act caused incredible destruction of the Native American culture and the entire tribe dynamic. Looking back into the act’s legacy, historians found that it was unsuccessful in the assimilation Native Americans. However, the Act did manage to suppress many of the Native American practices for the time being and its land allotment policies had long-standing implications.
At first they would help the colonist and teach them things about the new land, but as soon as the colonist started to try and take over the Indians land they became major enemies. The Indians would often try and chase the colonist out of their land, and start mini wars all over the place. This was a big challenge for the new colonist because the Indians were the only people who knew anything about the land. The Indians knew what was good and bad for survival. This was a major setback for the colonist because any help that they had was now
Cara War is something that you never want to experience, especially the war in Vietnam. Vietnam was an absolute mess because at no point was the United States as a whole on the same page about the war in general. Some believed that it was an important war that we needed to win and others believed that we had absolutely no business in Vietnam. As General Sherman said, “War is Hell,” but most vets would say that Vietnam was far worse than hell. They were placed into a war that from the start was impossible to win due to many circumstances and situations starting with the rules of war.
This inability to locate the big game was very detrimental to the Indians especially during the winters, when they needed them the most. With all the disadvantages the Native Americans had to face while fighting the United States ultimately weaken their ability to fight and protect their land, which lead to their
And now they realized that they needed the help from the Indians to win the war. They finally understood that the Indians were valuable to them and meant a lot to them. At the end of the war, the colonists win and the Indians don’t want to go back under the colonists’ control. The Indians then rebel against the colonists. This was also known as, Pontiac’s Rebellion.
