Beyond the trees, everything is owned by white settlers who have taken over the land and will not give it back to the Indians. The white settlers are now moving west.
Reservations are pieces of land the us government has lent to the Native Americans . They were lands that were unwanted. They were bad for hunting and were slowly getting smaller.
This is the native American land. These lands have been decreasing and their people have been forced to live on reservations.
Assimilation is the process of one group of people becoming like or taking on the traits of another.
There were different viewpoints behind assimilation. Some people wanted the chance to grab land for the white settlers. Others focused on peaceful integration of Indians into the American dream.
Other settlers just wanted to get rid of Native Americans to get land claims.
One form of Assimilation is boarding school.
Native American boarding schools were very strict. The kids were forced to get Euro- American haircuts and are punished if they practice there native religion. They spent half the day in the classroom.
They had a really hard life. they basically had no control over their life.
I feel really bad for Native Americans.
