Storyboard Text

  • THE AMERICANS ARE DESTROYING OUR LAND AND RESOURCES!
  • I FOUND GOLD!
  • I WANT NO PEACE TILL THE INDIANS SUFFER MORE
  • In 1851, the Treaty of Fort Laramie gave the Indians and area of land north of the Arkansas River to the Nebraska border. The Americans soon changed their minds when gold was discovered in this area. Miners rushed to the land and destroyed the Indian's resources causing them to be upset.
  • The Americans' motives for attacking the Cheyenne and Arapaho include the discovery of gold in the area that was promised to the two tribes. They were also motivated by General S. R. Curtis's telegram saying that he "wants no peace till the Indians suffer more."
