They were a more isolated human, so when the Europeans came and took over there immune systems were not at all prepared to face and fight back al;l the diseases that came there way. The European diseases were communicable and that therefore caused these illnesses to move faster and to cause death tolls to rise even faster than ever before. In some cases Indians were infected severely before even coming into direct association with the Europeans. The one disease that really got the Indians by the neck was smallpox. This disease killed tens of thousands of Indians in the New World.
The Indigenous people were often forced to give up their lands and take the agreement. This agreement has negatively affected the culture of the natives. Even though the natives seem to have good benefits such as having a “reserve” and they are granted with subsidies, this causes problems with the culture the natives have had for hundreds of years. This is because with subsidy the natives Is diverted away from growing food or native responsibilities. To this day the natives still have problems with agreements and treaties and most of all their way of life is impacted hugely by international interactions.
In 1605-1612, the colonists experienced the longest drought (Doc B). Because of the lack of rain, they weren’t able to grow crops (Doc B). The seasons also caused diseases to spread (Doc E). The occupations of the colonists contributed to the colonist dying. They brought gentlemen, rich men that didn’t work with their hands, and they wanted other people to build their houses and hunt for their food (Doc C).
Society has changed for her because no one sees her the same, she is infected with the plague and many are afraid they will get affected if near her. Her family is now unsafe because they are at risk of losing their mother. With a different witness, The Chinese Farmer, there was also much evidence to support the prosecutors. The Chinese Farmer stated “My family was affected drastically over the attack. The population dropped dramatically and now it is very difficult for myself and many other farmers to sell our crops.
Why was the Black Death so devastating? One reason why the Black Death was so devastating was due to its very sudden arrival. The Black Death arrived extremely quickly and did a lot of damage in such a short amount of time. In the end it killed over 40 per cent (2.5 million) of the population. This was due to the doctors lack of knowledge on the black death, because it was new and spreading fast doctors had little understanding of what caused the disease they also didn’t have enough time to figure out a treatment for their patients before they died.
Troy Voss Rachel Woodward English 110.429 Nov 5, 2009 The Dawes Severalty Act of 1887 The Dawes Severalty Act is a very controversial topic in the United States history. Its goal was to oppress the Native Americans by taking their land and worked to decimate their culture completely. 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.
He is viewed upon as a hero by Americans for these reasons, and has even received a day dedicated to him. He is also credited for beginning the colonization of America, which he indisputably deserves recognition for. However, when one looks into colonization more, he or she can realize that it was not that good of an era due to the problems faced against the Native Americans, which will be mentioned later. When Columbus arrived in the west, he brought many items from the east that introduced a negative side of cultural diffusion. These "new" items provided a "culture shock" to the natives and many did not know how to deal with the changes.
Also the plague killed 750,000 people. Both of these calamities caused the population decline of Rome. The Roman Army had a lot of weaknesses. The Pax Romana had lasted so long, that the Romans had become complacent about defending the Roman Empire. They stopped wearing breastplates and helmets and didn't practice drills, so that when barbarians attacked, they weren't ready.
Politics played an important role in the downfall of Rome. Social factors contributed to the demise of the Western Empire too. Many poor farmers had left their plots of land to seek protection from the wealthy. However, they were essentially slaves and not allowed to leave their new lands.
