The few Native Americans that managed to keep their land, the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), a federal government committee, served as trustee and held the legal titles over these lands. In addition, the BIA collected revenues made from these lands by non-Indians, and upon the death of a Native American the land was divided between descendants; overriding any Native American tribal customs. As a result, Native Americans lost approximately 90 million of the 130 million acres original provided from this act. In addition to this failed act, there was the most controversial act in the twentieth century, called The Termination Act of 1953. This act was original supposed to reduce government control over Native Americans by terminating services provided by the government.
4. Which of the agencies involved with the Indians- the Interior and the army- seemed to Jackson to be the most understanding of the circumstances of the Cheyenne? Jackson believed that both the Department of the Interior and the U.S army did not do much to help the Cheyenne. The U.S army massacred the Cheyenne tribe in 1864. 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).

This essay will be discussing the way I felt Native Americans were being portrayed in the works of Ben Franklin and John Smith. As well as if the authors were treating them in a favorable or negative light. During the times of early exploration Europeans known as white settlers came to the new world and met the Native Americans for the first time. At first, some of the settlers not knowing what kind of people they were took them as dumb and primitive and not looking favorably on them. When the Indians entered the white people’s towns, they found it to be disrespectful.
Instead, Romney used his time to rebuke Obama and did not express his position as much. “Why am I lowering taxes on the middle-class? Because under the last four years, they've been buried,” Romney said. Even though, Romney tried to overcome Obama; Obama fought back better than the last presidential debate. When Romney attacked Obama for hindering the use of coal, the President recalled an appearance of Romney as governor of Massachusetts, where he vowed to shut down a coal-fired power plant.
On August 3, 1492 Christopher Columbus set sail westward from Palo inspecting to sail around the world and reach the east side of Asia for gold and other earthly riches. On October 11, 1492 his plans were compromised. Instead of reaching Asia Columbus discovered an unknown inhabitant land, what we know was North and South America. Now before Columbus came to America there were people living there. The first people recorded living there were Native Americans called the Jaradite Nation.

Before Columbus was a famous admiral and governor of the New World, he was a pirate, or Privateer, who helped attack Moorish merchant trips 12. Columbus was very religious and believed God had called him to make his voyages.
Although among non-Native Americans Christopher Columbus is traditionally considered the discoverer of America, Columbus was preceded by the various cultures and civilizations of the indigenous peoples of the Americas, as well as the Western world's Vikings at L'Anse aux Meadows. He is regarded more accurately as the person who brought the Americas into the forefront of Western attention. "Columbus's claim to fame isn't that he got there first," explains historian Martin Dugard, "it's that he stayed. " The popular idea that he was first person to envision a rounded earth is false. The rounded shape of the earth has already been known since antiquity.
Before European contact Athapaskan groups were situated in northern Saskatchewan and to the east of Hudson’s Bay (Dumont 2). The Algonkian tribes were settled in the south central part of Saskatchewan and south Manitoba. Siouan peoples were living in the southern most parts of Saskatchewan and Manitoba (Dumont 13-14). The Cree were a large tribe of aboriginals that are well known in Saskatchewan and have a diverse history. The Cree were originally settled in the northern half of present-day Ontario and Manitoba but stretched across the prairies (Bryan 112).
Vikings have also been to the Americas before Columbus. So should he really be credited for “discovering” America? Why not the Vikings? Or the Asian Hunters? Why are they not credited for the discovery of America while Columbus is when they clearly arrived at the Americas
