Storyboard Text

  • Well, not exactly.
  • I'm done with this.
  • You'll never be able to understand what we had to go through.
  •  I mean, what good could overshadow kicking innocent people out of their homes?
  • It may even have contributed to your two mothers being able to sit here with you today, as social progress tends to come when a country is able to provide its people with better opportunities.
  • I guess I've got to choose and say it was bad, right?
  • Well then. I take it that he's not a fan of Manifest Destiny.
  • I think you're missing the point, along with many others.
  • I was a native american too, but the Westward Expansion made me a translater and explorer...
  • ...and because of my part in the expedition, my son was able to have a proper education.
  • So it was good, then?
  • History is a domino effect, a series of choices that shape our world today.
  • Manifest Destiny was one of those choices, and it played a key part in the advancement of society.
  • It was an opportunity for me, and many others, to use our skills and smarts for a greater prupose.
  • But it's important to remember that it was also a nightmare for many people like Sitting Bull, who were robbed of their rights by the very country that swore to protect them.
  • You don't have to choose a side.
  • So, what do you think you'll write for your paper?
  • I'll write that calling the Westward Expansion fully good or bad is an injustice to the situation and to history itself.
  • Thanks, Sacagawea.
