Back in the early days, Native Americans didn't have peaceful lives. Their lives were filled with fear and they feared so many things. They feared to lose their land, losing their children and so many more.
Native Americans forced live on reservations.
Native Americans lives weren't always good, instead, it was terrible. Events like Manifest Destiny and The Carlisle Indian Industrial School were horrible events that impacted Native Americans. They are so many more events that occurred.
The Carlisle Indian Industrial School forcibly assimilated American Indian children into America’s dominant white culture. The Americans convinced Native Americans to send their children to the school so they can live a better life and learn the way of white culture. But, this was false and 200 children died at the school and they were buried at the school. In the article, "Those Kids Never Got To Go Home", by Jeff Gammage states, "Pratt argued to tribal leaders that if Indians had been better able to speak and read Eglish, they would not have been so abused in treaty negotiations.
Peace Was Never Maintained
In the second half of the late 19th century, Native Americans were forced to reservations by the U.S Military. When they were forced to move into reservations, they faced numerous problems. In the article, "From Resistance to Reservations ", by USHistory.org states, "At the end of the American Indian Wars, all surviving Native Americans were assigned to reservations where they faced poverty, alcoholism, unemployment, poor farming, depression, and the forced removal of children to Indian boarding schools where they stripped of their culture and language."
Manifest Destiny was a belief that American settlers were destined to expand across North America. Native Americans were basically tricked into thinking they were going to expand across North America. In the article, "Manifest Destiny" by Mike Kubic, states, "For a time, Jefferson continued hoping that Native Americans could be persuaded to either voluntarily leave their homes, or opt for assimilation with the white settlers.
In the late 19th century, peace was often broken between Native Americans and the U.S. The Native Americans had very bad negotiating skills while the U.S would take advantage of this. In the article, "From Resistance to Reservations" by USHistory.org states, "Following the new Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868, which altered tribes' in the northern Great Plains, the American military shared a delicate peace with the Sioux and the Cheyenne. Gold broke it."
