You are a fraud!You are not respecting the treaty!
Lies! You are the ones who came on our territory last month!
During the late 19th century,many Americans settled West. They settled West for 3 particular industries:mining,ranching,and farming.
The Indian Peace Commission will keep the peace.
All three of these industries required the use of land.The government needed land to give to the settlers. This land belonged to the Native Americans, and the government decided to give it to the settlers.
I refuse to sign this treaty.
It is an order from the U.S government!
Conflicts arose between settlers and Native Americans.It often due to a treaty that was not respected by either the settlers or the Native Americans.
Your cow is in our territory and destroying our crops.
No one is going to stop me!
In 1867 the Indian Peace Commission was formed to end the conflicts.This treaty created 3 major problems for Native Americans.
The first problem was that Native American chiefs were forced to sign treaties that agreed to reservations.
The second problem was that the government could not stop the settlers from breaking the treaty.
