Did you hear about the Transcontinental Railroad? I've been told white settlers have been using it to cross the Great Plains and take over Native American land.
No, I haven't! That's terrible!
Oh, no! Here they come now! They're going to kill our sacred buffalo!
No! Please don't make my family and I move onto a reservation.
This is our land now!
I hate leaving our land, but if we don't move onto the reservation, the white settlers will kill us all.
As if things couldn't get any worse, all kids are now being forced to attend assimilation schools!

I can't believe they're stripping us of our Native American culture!
Today, you all will learn how to read English.
