Storyboard Text

  • The Fox Indians lived in three tribes, Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma.
  • Early treaties signed by American agents and representatives of Indian tribes guaranteed peace and the integrity of Indian territories, primarily to assure that the lucrative fur trade would continue without interruption.
  • Soon enough, the removal didn't last long, it created violent cases with the United States government.
  • The treaty that was signed ignored the fact that tribes in the southeast raised significant crops of corn and lived in settled villages.
  • Missionary societies who had invested their time and money teaching Indians to live with their white neighbors and accept Christianity lobbied Congress to oppose the act. It finally passed, but only by a one-vote margin, in September of 1830.
  • They were so happy that Congress passed the Indian Removal Act. They all lived happily ever after.
