  • The Indian Policy By Wendy Pena Period: 2
  • The Indian policy is how President Andrew thought he solved the problem between them and the natives by moving them from their land.
  • A-P-P-L-E spells apple.
  • Many Indian Americans lived in territories between the states in America. A few tribes were the Seminole, Choctaw, Chickasaw, and a few more around the state of Wisconsin. President Jackson thought that they were a problem since they lived in the USA but in their land, which took land from the USA.
  • The settlers had always bumped heads with the Native Americans. When this occurred the government would always try to make peace with treaties. These treaties would usually break the boundary of the land that was promised to belong to the Indians forever. It would usually end the natives giving up their old land and being promised food and needed supplies.
  • Many Natives had left their ways and modified them to fit in with their white neighbors. Jackson was eager to get rid of them so he passed a law in 1830 to remove them from their land and give them land in the Great Plains. Some had even learned to read and write. They even stopped hunting and started to farm.
  • Although Jackson had made that law, the supreme court said it was okay for them to stay on their current land. This angered Jackson and forced them out of their land and onto native Americans' territory. If the Natives did not leave on their own, they were forced through military force.
  • Not only were many forced out of their homes, but they also had to walk the trail of tears. The trail of tears was a trail the many Indian Americans walked to get to the Indian territory. Many died along the way, but those who survived said it was the harshest thing they had ever done.
