Ever since Christopher Columbus discovered the Western hemisphere, more and more explorations were set out to discover more about this new land. Eventually, settlements were created and people took this as an opportunity to create a new life; however, there had already been people living in these lands, known as Native Americans. The relationship between the settlers and these people was not always peaceful. Conflicts were created over territories and power that sometimes lead out to blood shed wars, but it did not always have to lead to that. In the mid 1600s, an explorer, Adam, and a Native American, Chayton, will soon learn that.
Seagulls were calling up in the sky, telling the exhausted voyagers they were near land. It has been over 163 …show more content…
Many had made arrangements for new cabins to be waiting for them, others would stay with family members or friends; as for Adam, he headed towards a lodge to spend the night. The next morning, Adam was fully prepared to begin in his journey in making his fame. His plan was to go up north and see what treasures he could find. Four hours into his journey, and Adam had already began to experience a whole new world. He wrote every single detail down in his journal like the diverse species of birds and small beasts, as well as the exotic plants he encountered. As he continued to walk, he heard the song the birds chirped in trees along with the crunching of dried leaves and branches made with every step taken and fragrance of pine cones filled his nose. He was amazed by the beauty of the forest, but what he did not know was he was not …show more content…
Because it was getting late the tribe leader, insisted that Adam stay for the night and leave for the morning; Adam agreed. As Adam tried to go to sleep that night, the smell of smoke hit his nose. He peaked outside of his tent and saw one of the tents on fire; it was the enemy tribe. The others began to notice and the men grabbed their weapons to fight, while the woman and children tried to put out the fire and go to a safe place. Adam helped in putting out the fire and while doing so, he noticed Chayton surrounded in the fire while he was helping the children escape. Adam grabs one of the buckets of water and manages to hold off the fire for him and the children to escape.
Chayton’s tribe scares off the enemies, winning this battle. In the morning, many of the tribe members gather around to see Adam leave because they have recognized his heroics from the night before. Chayton thanks Adam for helping and apologizes for the way he treated him; Adam accepts and leave in good terms. As Adam leaves, Chayton thinks about his discussion with the tribe leader from when they found about when the Marie was about to

When Karana found him a pack of wolves were circling him when Karana reached him she realized he was
Since the first colonies settled in America, the relationship between the white settlers and the native Americans rapidly changed from valued friends to hated enemies. Upon arrival, it is estimated that the white settlers encountered about 900,000 Native American cultures with 300 different languages. As time went on, native American population decreased while the white settler’s population increased, demanding more land and resources. During the 1800’s, President Andrew Jackson was committed to developing the western frontier and the economic progress of the states. Along with expansion came Indian reservations, Indian boarding schools, and massacres of Indian tribes. While territorial expansion was a positive action for settlers, it can be argued that it violated the human rights of native Americans.
In the midst of an American Revolution founded upon principles of liberty and justice for all men, Native Americans joined both sides of the war with hopes of securing their own safety and freedom. In the end, the U.S. Revolutionary War caused economic downturn and civil strife among native communities, ultimately making Indian territory a vulnerable target for westward expansion.
On the summer days of June 25-26, 1876 the Battle of the Little Bighorn took place in the southeastern area of the Montana territory. The battlefield is very close to the Little Bighorn River itself, in what is now present day Big Horn County, Montana. The adversaries in this battle were the U.S. Army’s 7th Cavalry, commanded by General George A. Custer against the Indian tribes of the Northern Cheyenne, Lakota Sioux, and Arapaho under the leadership of Sitting Bull.
Since columbus first arrived in the Americas in 1492, until present day, conflict between Europeans and native americans has always been an issue. However, there were four specific groups of people that were dealing with these issues during the first Europeans migrations west. They were; the Spanish, the Virginians, the New Englanders, and Pennsylvania. The Native Americans constantly were being pushed out of their homelands, and told they did not own it. The Europeans who came over to the Americas often felt very entitled to all of the land they felt they wanted.
Throughout history, American settlers, explorers, military personnel, and governmental entities have come into contact with Native American people as America sought to expand its control over claimed and unclaimed territories. These interactions ranged from developing strong and amicable relations with Native populations, to armed conflict. As relations progressed, both Indian and non-Indians developed positive and negative perspectives and opinions of one another that impacted relations and communications between the two sides in different ways. Unfortunately, more often than not, fighting ensued and armed conflict resulted in the seizure of Indian territories and the forced removal of Indian tribes to reservations as America expanded its foothold in North America. Furthermore, such conflict at times created prominent events that to this
The relationship between the settlers and the native americans in the United States had always been a tense one. However, by 1791 the Cherokee of Georgia and North Carolina had accepted the colonists and their way of life and had become more like them. The settlers, on the other hand, resented the Cherokee’s prosperity and wanted the gold on their land.With the Indian Removal Act in 1830 the U.S. government forced the Cherokee off of their land and resettled them in indian territory in what is now Oklahoma.
The history of Euro American aggression in Native affairs is a long, imposing and not one to be proud of. It is not just the Pilgrims which arrived on the shores of American in 1620, or subsequent and ever growing throngs of European immigrants to the shore of what would become the United States of America. With the invasion of Europeans into the new world came the European practice of settler colonialism. “European expansion took three forms: networks, the establishment of ongoing systems of long-range interaction, usually for trade; empire, the control of other peoples, usually through conquest; and settlement, the reproduction of one’s own society through long-range migration.” (Belich, James. Replenishing the Earth, p.21) All three of these processes have been used by Europeans to colonize and control North America. In the early 1600s Europeans arrived on the shores of what is now the United States with the intent of colonizing the land. From the 17th through the 21st centuries, the population of Native Americans declined because of epidemic diseases brought from Europe, violence, and warfare. The native people, out of the necessity to survive as a people, became creative when responding to the Europeans. Through the centuries of abuse and slaughter, the indigenous people of North America forged new and inventive ways of preserving and differentiating, the people and the cultures.
The conflict between the Native American culture and the white man's image of manifest destiny has affected not only past generation but also recent and future ones. The white tribal policies, decimation of the buffalo population, and assimilation had all led to the position that their society is in right now. Through all this conflict many Native Americans have preserved and still retain some of their customs and traditions of their ancestors today.
It is well known that when a dog is backed into a corner it will lash out and bite the provoker. In the case of Native Americans and the settlers, the Natives are the dog, the settlers are the provokers are the corner is the land of North America. In the beginning the settlers came to North America uninvited and set up their new lives here, turned a blind eye to whether or not the Native Americans agreed to them settling there. Once they had their land set up, they then “flexed their settler muscles” and showed the Native Americans that it was their land now and started forcefully removing the natives from their land. What was the settler’s motivation? What could one assume about the settlers based on their actions?
The first recorded interaction between Europeans and the Native American (Tainos) was initiated by an Italian explorer by the name of Christopher Columbus. Under the funding of the Spanish Monarchs, Columbus intended to travel westward in hope of finding an oceanic passage to Asia for trade. When Columbus stumbled upon what we now know to have been the Bahamas, he believed he had found the Indies and thus named the people he discovered ‘Indians’. He went back to Europe bringing along some Tanios and convincing the monarchs he had found a civilization worth plundering, and people naive enough to lead into slavery. When Columbus returned to his “discovery” he found his Spanish crew dead, most likely due to the poor treatment the Tainos had been receiving. Infuriated Columbus enslaved the people and within 28 years (1492-1520) he had committed a genocide on the entire tribe. This was the start of a poor relationship between Europeans and the Natives.
In 1788 Captain James Cook and the first fleet came with soldiers and convicts that had came to colonize Australia. The colonization had lead to the encountering of problems with the indigenous people including the battles for resources, defence for tribal land and the fight for racism. This out break turned into a war zone between the Indigenous people and the European and it was justified that the Indigenous people did resist the British. These issues between the European and the indigenous had both long-term affects and short-term affects on the growth of the Australian culture. There were a number of reasons for conflict between Europeans and indigenous Australians.
