Virginia DeJohn Anderson, “King Philip’s Herds: Indians, Colonists and the Problem of livestock in Early New England” In this article Ms. Anderson talks about how livestock (mostly swine) played a critical role toward King Philip’s War of 1675-76. How hostilities, settlers free ranging livestock wandered into native villages and affected them and how the Indians responded to theses encroachments. English colonist imported thousands of cattle, swine, sheep, and horses because they considered livestock essential to their survival. But the animals caused problems to subsistence practices, land use, property rights and political authority. Indians did not want to own domestic animals since livestock husbandry did not fit easily with native practices, the adoption of livestock would alter women’s lives by affecting the traditional division of labor since women were mainly responsible of agriculture production.
In the winters the cowboys would ride down to Texas then up to Canada for work and come back with their pay waiting for them. They would drive cattle all the way across the country, leaving dead cattle and nurturing the young calves back to health to have as many as possible to sell at the auction. The cowboys would have deep conversations to keep themselves occupied while they were gone for so many months. Subjects such as things they haven’t experienced yet, love, meaningful relationships, and children would be the main topics discussed while away. Once returning from a long journey and showing the audience the hard work of a cowboy, they discover that the pay that they should have received for working all winter was cut down to just one month’s pay.
Moreover, he wants to come out of the war alive. The squad becomes a second family to Richi. With his understanding of the real purpose of the war he was able to calm and provide his fellow squad members a sympathetic ear. For instance, when Lieutenant Carrol dies during action, a friend of Richi blames himself for his death.

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
Grampa does not like black folks. They go to the court house every day to do a little business and Hiram sits out side with a pop and or candy. Grampa is actually involved with the WCC where he believes that “Black people should know their place and that is underneath white folk.”(126) Grampa ends up having a stroke and is in a wheel chair which is very different for Hiram. Dad finally lets Hiram return to Mississippi for the summer but worries about how things will go. Grampa loans out his blue ford pickup often to different folks.
Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee Movie Review The movie was made to show how the Indians in the United States were treated so unfairly by the United States government. The Indians were the first on this land but the settlers were determined that they had more right to the land than the Indians did. The Story is of Charles Eastman who is half Sioux Indian and was taken from his tribe, by his father, at a young age to be Americanized in public schools. He went on to learn and to be very well educated and became a doctor. For a while he worked for the government trying to help with Indian right, and settlement separation.
His guilt over the death of his beloved wife and son during World War 2 is a crucial event in which shaped the present Keller. He decides to remove his past and begin a new future in Darwin, however he lost some of his previous qualities in order to start fresh. One of these qualities was his love for romantic music. When Paul visits Vienna, he finds out that ‘Eduard loved the romantics.’ However after the concentration camp, Keller had hatred towards them as it clearly reminded him of the horrors he faced during that time. This accentuates how much guilt the man carries among himself and helps define who he truly is during the novel.
He asks the rhetorical question, "A hero of war, is that what they see?" showing his disgust at what he has experienced and what he became as a soldier. His age has perhaps provided him with this distrust, the "medals and scars" symbolising the idea of a war veteran. The caustic sarcasm of "...so damn proud of me..." is very inputting as the war veteran reflects on the enthusiasm he had for the job as a young man, but not anymore. The development of the young soldier's enthusiastic distinctive voice into a cynical war veteran voice is very well done.
(Economist,1) All because the on going battle to have horses legally considered companion animals instead of live stock. The United State Department of Agriculture has been “stingy” (McGraw, 1) to give out any information on horse slaughter. (Economist,1) except to say “Horses are livestock, same as cows and pigs” (McGraw,1) Many people around the country beg to differ. It can probably be agreed by most that horses are owned for recreational purposes, generally not for work any longer. However, it can be found in the far western states that horses still work dawn to dusk, the long hours of cowboys.
Or is it going to affect one’s societal appearance? This is my story of a black woman at the age of 19 dating a 21 year old white man .The effects of dating outside of my race changed my appearance in society, it affected my immediate family, and changed my learned behavior of another race. First, the experience of dating a white man created a stigma amongst my friends and family as me not having self-esteem, and that I was becoming “a white people lover”. Not all my friends were accepting of my dating a white man, and once they started to know him, they did not approve of his wrongs and how he was irresponsible and living off me. I started to figure out which friends were “true” friends and which ones were “fair-weather” friends.
