In 1865, the white men wanted to open a road in the Powder River country, and none of the Indians were pleased with this because of how much land was already taken from them (Pg. 124 Brown). “..Our women and children will starve, but for my part I prefer to die fighting than by starvation,” (Pg. 130, Brown), Red Cloud said this at a peace conference, although Red Cloud wanted peace he cared for his people more and didn’t want them to starve so he took a stand against the white men. All through the summer of 1866 Red Cloud’s ally White Chief was involved in a relentless guerrilla war fare.
Spain on the other hand felt that the native people were not using the land to it's full potential. It was their obligation to put the land to better use. Through the generations of colonization and invasion, both the Spanish Empire and the native people met several ups and downs. Spain initially conquered many of the Natives such as the Aztecs and the Pueblos. Eventually the Pueblos blamed the Spanish for their hardships and misfortunes because of the fact that the Spanish had, in a sense, outlawed their ancient rituals and ceremonies.
4. After the messenger has reported to King Motecuhzoma of how the Spaniards have made the journey, what they saw and ate, the King was terrified. He was also terrified by their advanced cannon. When the messenger explained that their clothing is made of iron and their horses carry them wherever they wished to go, it was as if King’s heart has fainted. After being installed in the palace, the Spaniards demanded the gold from the natives, which brought it for them.
APUSH, Period 5 13 November 2013 Consanguinity (DBQ #2) The relationships and interactions between the Native Americans and the English were very complex and delicate. Often times they started out very friendly but over time they changed to very hostile and aggressive relations. The English wanted land and resources and the Natives wanted their land back. When these two forces met with a conflict there was almost always death and bloodshed. Due to the excessive amount of conflicts, it was inevitable not to have battles, peace agreements, and to this day Native Americans are not pleased with Caucasian people.
The King Philip War significantly shifted the puritans’ attitude toward the Indians. The war not only inflicted pain and death upon the puritans, but also threatened the colony’s stability. The puritans thus became hostile toward the Indians and came to view them as enemies that needed to be eliminated in order to protect themselves as well as this “city on the hill”. In addition, John mentioned in his account that only a very small number of Indians were being converted to Christianity. The failure to convert the Native Americans to Christianity perhaps is another reason that changed the puritans’ attitude toward the Indians.
It was even done by the great god Zeus! The ancient Greeks thought that Odysseus was right in killing all the suitors because they ate his food, exceeded their limits, didn’t leave when they were told, misbehaved with his wife when he was gone, and even raped the maids. Back then, it was unquestionably correct to kill the
Another major reason was the war itself, as it killed many natives. The advantages that the Spanish had over the natives were immense. The Indigenous people had “wooden clubs tipped anridged with razor-sharp obsidian...that probably shattered against Spanish helmets.” (Acuna 2007) While the Spanish had long, sharp swords that easily killed natives in a short amount of time. This advantage allowed the Spanish to approach and kill the native warriors that gathered and protected their leaders, and once their leaders had been killed, his followers would thereupon surrender to the Spanish. (Acuna
Spain and other countries thought they had to get rid of the Indians, so they killed many of them, and pushed them away from their home lands after they got whatever they needed from them, but the French sought out a different approach. They wanted to have a good relationship with the Indians, and therefore were a lot friendlier. One of the biggest things that brought the French and Indians together was trade. France was very interested in furs, spices, and other things, while the Indians were intrigued by the goods that the French had brought over. The Indians and the French even established a region around the Great lakes that was known as the ‘Middle Ground’ were they could trade and negotiate with each other without anyone imposing on one another.
Jamestown's relationship with Native Americans The relationship between Jamestown Colonist and the Native Americans was very strange. They had a love/hate relationship. Sometimes the Natives wanted to trade with the Colonist but other times, they just wanted to kill the Colonist. The Jamestown Colonist needed a lot of help when it came to trade for food and supplies. What the Jamestown Colonist failed to realize is that they when they decided to move to Virginia that the land was already occupied by many Indian tribes.
Christopher Columbus wrote in his log stating that the natives traded everything they owned willingly, and without force. Columbus also wrote that the natives would be fine servants. He noticed the lack of technology, and his opinion of a savage like society, which gave him the feeling of superiority. Columbus took a few natives by force for information as he sailed around in the search of gold. It appears that Columbus is an impatient man, for when he did not get what he wanted, when he wanted, he released his wrath by brutally killing the natives, and so they could recognize his authority.
