Chapter 9 section 2 outline -An American story, this explains how and why Americans would risk everything to go west. And the Americans would go west because if a man is disappointed in politics or love he will buy land, but if he disgraces himself he will betake himself and move west -Western Territory, This passage says how the men and women traveled and how they would have to travel through harsh conditions and all they had for protection was a rifle in search for land. Most of these men were farmers and they traveled in Conestoga wagons, which were sturdy vehicles topped with white canvas. Finally on the way the way farmers would settle near rivers so the Spanish allowed the Americans to sail on the lower part of the Mississippi river
After the rule of the Mongol over Russia, many of the free peasants had fallen into debt and were forced to work as laborers on the large estates owned by nobles. The Russian serfdom system expanded as more land was added to the empire. This similarity exists between these two systems of forced labors because as both the Spanish and Russian empire expanded, forced labor became necessary to maintain the empires’ economic status. The best social classes to demand labor from are the poorer social classes, in this case, the Russian peasants and Native Americans of the new world. Another similarity between Russian serfdom and the Spanish encomienda system is that both the serfs and the natives were born into their social class, thus born into the system of forced labor, although
The French possessed a high interest in the furs that the Indians had made. They set up a complex trading system where the Indians would trade furs that they would trap for manufactured goods of the French. Though, of course, the trade was not any way close to being even. The furs that the French bought were being resold in France for double or triple what the French had paid. Some Indian merchants had realized that these trades were unfair so only sold good furs for what they believed was goo manufactured goods.
On May 11, 1858, Minnesota became the 32nd state to join the United States of America (Minnesota). Early on, the state was filled with vast resources and an abundance of wildlife. Most of the wildlife, such as deer, elk and moose, contributed to the settler’s diet. Natural predators created competition and hardships for the new settlers; one of these animals was the Gray Wolf. The decrease in the amount of large mammals that the settlers consumed left wolves’ preying on cattle.
The relationship was positive at the beginning of the Native-European contact because of their reliance on each other for trade goods but in turn, negative consequences of Native-European contact arose during the fur trade which resulted in the relationships becoming weakened and problematic. It is evident that Indian tribes and way of life changed significantly because of contact with Europeans, both positively and negatively. Ramsay Cook described the beginning of the European settlement in North America, “The Amerindians initial contact with European economic organization came through the fur trade. At least in
Algonquians mostly lived along the river where they could go fishing and hunting. The authors said, “The hunting parties were traversing a well-watered and heavily forested landscape which white men would one day call Maine” (pg 5). They used to be called as “Penobscot” or “people of the white rocks country”. Their land marked the northern limits of Indian farming because late thaws and early frosts let them make only a little corn, squash, and beans (pg 6). In addition, the time-honored habits of fishing and hunting on which their survival depended were the main aspect for the annual change between seasonal camps up and down the Penobscot River valley (pg 6).
Before the Spaniards came to dominate the land, the natives lived a peaceful and simple life. These people lived off of the land, gathering resources and hunting for food. Explorer La Perouse listed the native’s diet as mostly, “hares, rabbits, and deer are extremely common; seals and otters as abundant as in the more northern parts; and in the winter they kill a great number of bears, foxes, wolves, and wild cats.” (67) The Indians lived in huts made of plants and mud, disease was also well known for this wild civilization. They practiced rituals and festivals, most of which the Spanish did not know what was being celebrated. The Spanish described the natives as lost people, generations of knowing no civilization or the riches life could bring.
Hawkeye - The book’s frontier hero, he is a woodsman, hunter, and scout. He is a white man who has spent most of his life in the company of the Mohicans A famous marksman, Hawkeye carries a rifle named Killdeer and has earned the frontier nickname La Longue Carabine, or The Long Rifle.

Their tribes were subdivided into bands, interrelated groups, and these bands had their own governing councils and decision making processes. The Plains Indians practiced a nature religion and had typical male and female roles within each band. The Plains Indians hunted buffalo on small horses; they moved from place to place, following the buffalo
To me it’s a past time, an adrenalin rush, as well as a way to put extra food on the table. Deer hunting is a way to get in touch with true nature; it has been a way for people to provide food for their families for hundreds of years. Also deer are magnificent creatures and it’s amazing that they can be found all over the world. The cave drawings in the Chauvet Cave show a couple of horses looking in one direction and below the horses two rhinos fighting. They might have drawn rhinos because they are powerful animals and horses because they where a way of travel.
