Storyboard Text

  • The Dawes Act will provide more land for everyone. And the Indians will not be homeless. They will get good homes where they can live.
  • Tribal Roll
  • To receive an allotment, the Natives must register to be on the Tribal Roll.
  • We have split up your land. You will be given new smaller land allotments to live and farm on.
  • We cannot use this to farm. The land is too dry and there is not good soil.
  • The land provided was too small to grow anything for subsistence farming.
  • Many Native American children were place in boarding schools. They did not know how to farm or provide for themselves like their families did.
