  • But what about our lives here?
  • Welcome to your new land!
  • It most definitely is. Enjoy it.
  • But it all desert. Are you sure this is the right land for us?
  • It is far too dry here to farm or raise cattle.
  • I'm not sure. I will talk to the Americans.
  • When the Indians went to their new land they were confused on why they would give them land they couldn't farm on.
  • How will we grow food?
  • I miss the old land.
  • I'm sure you will be Okay.
  • I'm sorry, but I'm sure you can figure something out.
  • Oh! and we will be taking more of your land. sorry.
  • We need new land. we can't afford the tools to be able to farm here.
  • What? we hardly have enough as it is and we still can't farm.
  • The Indians had tiny land allotments and they couldn't farm on the land. Their children were off at boarding school so they couldn't inherent their allotments.
  • I don't know what to do anymore. We have no food because we can't farm and our children won't get our land.
