Firstly, the reason why was began was because the British government wanted to make land for farming. But the aboriginals didn’t accept and started to fight for their land. Secondly, the most dangerous war/mascara was the Myall creek massacre where twelve local stockmen decided to start to kill people. They tied up 28 people including children. The stockmen brutally beat the aboriginal people to death.
This war destroyed 626 villages ; and more than 200,000 people were killed! Did you know that this war is still continuing today ? While doing the research for this project, I found it very shocking that a huge Genocide had started all due to a dispute for better land. This whole Genocide started when Guatemalan government refused to get the farmers better land. Guatemala's government was the main reason why this genocide took place, they were to selfish to share their land.
Custer’s Last Stand at Little Bighorn resulted in Custer and his men being ambushed by Indians (Doc. 10). This was one of the few instances where the Americans suffered a considerable amount of casualties. The U.S. Government was able to carry out their atrocities by dehumanizing the Plains Indians. Many whites thought of them as beasts and romanticized their slaughter (Doc.
Tensions were rising between the colonists and the Indians, the people were facing very hard economic times and were looking for a way out. The colonists found their scapegoat in the form of the local Indians. The trouble began in 1675 with a raid by the Doeg Indians on the plantation of Thomas Mathews, located in the Northern Neck section of Virginia near the Potomac River. Several of the Doegs were killed in the raid, which began in a dispute over the nonpayment of some items Mathews had apparently obtained from the tribe. 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.
Some tribes at first welcomed or tolerated the newcomers, but as it became clear that the British intended to stay, conflict escalated. Aboriginal groups mounted effective guerrilla campaigns but were eventually overwhelmed by the new repeater rifle, horsepower and the armed might of colonial governments. Removed from their land, deprived of their traditional bush food and devastated by disease, malnutrition, poverty, alcoholism, violence and despair, most Aboriginal people existed on town fringes and pastoral properties or were herded onto
In fact, apparently we are not well accepted or even accepted at all to the dominant white race. A big reminder of that is the Ku Klux Klan, who is constantly killing and injuring my fellow brothers, sisters, family, friends, and the whole of my race. Some are untouched, BUT there is no doubt about it that we are all scarred mentally and in our hearts as well. They burn down our houses, slaughter our children, and throw their bodies on the road to intimidate us, to make sure the minority or the “animals” do not rise up and strike back. They also implemented the Jim Crow laws that is supposed to separate the black from the white and whoever is caught violating that rule will either rot in jail, pay a great
It was a sad day for the Sioux with many tears shed and many prayers sent. As time went by the great buffalo was almost driven to extinction. Unfortunately I cannot blame the white man entirely for this tragedy, as I and all Lakota Sioux many times killed to many buffalo to use and wasted much. With more and more white men pouring into our lands, by the 1850’s we were at conflict with one another mainly over land. Treaties were signed but rarely honored and many were nothing more than underhand ways to steal our land.
it shows that he is a legendary icon. Shaka land is a tourist attraction that shows Zulu hospitality. [Source O, Q & R] According to History Standards, he believed in fierce discipline and that men be put to death for the slightest fault and that resulted in people fearing and hating him. He went against his customs and abused his army, allowing his soldiers little time to rest and craving more and more power through his reign. While his people expected him to show kindness , he grew harder and harsher which eventually led to his own army and brother killing him.
All of theses ethic groups experiences some kind of racism, from White Supremacy, scientific, state positive and institutionalized racism, also segregstion and discrimanation. Racism towards Native Americans was very obvious and unconcealed. As settlers adapted and enter what they called the new world , killing the natives and taking their land was a big way they went about conquering. Surviving Natives were denied equality and often treated as outsiders , or wards of the state. Many of them were regualted to reservations, consituting just four percent of the U.S territory.
All people deal with conflict and war in different way and sometimes never fully recover at all. In a time of serious conflict, being war, whole societies can be affected many different ways, Mazar-e–Sharif is a perfect example of this, they are a town who are constantly experiencing war and conflict between their own people and other forces. Almost everyone in Mazar-e-Sharif will have experienced a pain of being injured or of losing a loved one, growing up in a place of constant war would have affected children in major ways, the children will always being living in fear of attacks and will never truly trust the government system. The fear of war is not only in Afghanistan but also in many other places such as Vietnam and most recently Libya, these two countries have had basically the same fate as Afghanistan, with the constant fear and thought of death in the back of their minds. Not everyone copes with conflict the same way, some just curl up and wait for it to finish, but not everyone.
