I took the Native American IAT and the Age IAT tests. I thought my results would be that I would have some association with Native Americans because I have Native American in my ancestry. My results were that I had little or no association between Native American and American with Foreign and American. I am not sure if I agree with them or not and that maybe from family history. I have no ideal if this method is truly effective and I would try to make sure that I am being considerate about other people's culture when teaching students and interacting with their families. I took away from this test that I learned new things about my thought process.
The Haudenosaunee is one of the best known Native American Indian groups that lived in the northern New York region. They are referred to as the Iroquoians. They are a group of five allied nations – the Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida and Mohawk. Their league of confederation is called the “League of Iroquois”. Tuscarora, a sixth nation joined them later. They were very strong militarily and feared by Europeans and fellow Indians alike. The rivers in the region ran into Lake Ontario. The winters were cold and snowy and the summers were pleasant but humid. They had extensive varieties of animals both large and small. The language spoken was the Iroquoian language by both the northern
These native peoples, first mislabeled as Indians by an explorer named Christopher Columbus, divided themselves into many different tribes, each with its own government, language, traditions and religions. Europeans, who slowly poured into the Indian's land, did not respect the Indians beliefs, interrupted their peaceful life and would do almost anything to get the land to them selves. The settlers also believed the land that both the Indians and the settlers lived on was theirs to themselves. They began to push the Native Americans off of their own land. Many of them fought back to keep their homes, some succeeded, some didn't.
The Native American’s were the first known settlers in North America, ten thousand years before Columbus came to the continent. Their origins completely unclear, anthropologists believe there were three to five million Native Americans in North America in the year 1492 (Hoxie and Iverson, 1997). As early as the Revolutionary War in 1775, European settlers started taking note of the Native Americans. Unfortunately, the Native American population plunged significantly in the first decades after their first contact with Europeans. Native Americans were now unprotected and exposed to deadly diseases like smallpox, influenza, and measles which did not previously exist in their society (North American Natives, 2016).
The Native American’s way of living was different from the Europeans. They believed that man is ruled by respect and reverence for nature and that nature is an
An Indigenous People 's’ History of the United States. A history book claimed to go above and beyond what has been stated in text before it. Every page is packed with details and references to other accredited historians, or examples of the mindset that has been historically infused. At first glance you think you already know about the history of the Native Americans. How we saw it fit to take their land, put them on ever shrinking “gifted” lands that would never allow them to strive again. How they are simply a conquered people who fought back and lost. Alas this book takes what you thought you knew and makes it more real, focusing on the unnecessary genocide. Admittedly this book was very difficult for me to read, I found myself trailing off, being confused with the connections. There were however quite a few spots that stuck out to me, especially those we have covered in our race lectures.
The long history between Native American and Europeans are a strained and bloody one. For the time of Columbus’s subsequent visits to the new world, native culture has
Native Americans lived on the North American continent centuries before the arrival of Europeans. These native groups developed and preserved cultural traditions. Many European explorers traveled to the New World around the 1500s in search for God, gold, and glory. This brought them into contact with the Native Americans, and led to a complete change in their lifestyle. Europeans brought the Natives diseases, forced them to relocate, and altered their cultures. All in all, the Europeans left a devastating impact on the Native Americans.
What if everyday in America there was not an action someone could take because someone of an opposite race sexually assaulted or domestically abused that person? Often news outlets only focus on major even in cities or towns, but never the reservations. With the lack of awareness of the number of rapes and domestic abuse victims on reservations, at large society is saying America doesn’t care due to reservations having sovereignty. Even with new laws signed into place by President Obama to deal with the rape and abuse problems to Native American women, that come from non Native Americans, the problem with this is it’s a pilot only on three tribes (Culp-Ressler,1).It is said it will expand soon, but how soon? America is not known for being
Native Americans have played an important role in the United States for over thousands of years. The Native Americans once lived on their land with little disturbance, having made their own meals and lived in a traditional culture up until Columbus had discovered their land. From their first arrival into the Native land, the Spanish mistreated and disrespected the Indians by trying to enforce their way of life and their beliefs upon them.
When people think about the history of Native Americans, they rarely think about how vast and rich it is. Much of the education about aboriginal people in the Americas begins and ends with Christopher Columbus. This association leads people to believe that Native Americans were small in number and short in history. However, Native Americans have a lengthy and complex history, that archaeologists and anthropologists have tried to piece together for years. Throughout history, there has been a strong interest in finding out the origins of Native Americans, and tracing back when they got to North America.
What were the significant treaties, policies, and events that defined US Government and Native American Relations? How did the Native American respond to these treaties, polices, and events historically? How did these treaties, policies, and events affect the subsistence, religion, political, and social structures of the Native American people? I will answer these questions through the examination of two centuries of US history in six time periods that define clear changes in the relationship between the Native American and the US Government.
When I read a lot about Native America who are they, what was their culture, the size of their territories, their economical, political, militaries as well as what look like the lost of their land and unexpected reduced of the numbers of people, since 1784 to presents. I knew some information all about the abodes
The Role of Chronology and Simultaneity In Indian Policy How does this chronology and simultaneity fit with how history is taught and the Western vs. Indigenous worldview? When one sets out to study American history, we regard it as just that: history. Although there are certainly events that came about many years ago and are technically ongoing in the present, for the most part it is not difficult to view the past of the United States from a passive position regarding occasions that have been “overcome” and moved past as a nation. For Native Americans, history is especially continuous and enduring.
Many interesting facts were learned about the native americans. Some things that were learned about the native americans were that they had advanced medicine, they were dying constantly from smallpox and about the iroquois confederacy. The native americans had many methods on how to heal someone. They used different herbs to cure illnesses. The native americans were much more advanced in medicine than the europeans. When the europeans came over to america they brought smallpox over. The native americans did not have any tolerance for small pox so it was extremely deadly to them. 90 percent of native americans that died, died from smallpox. The Iroquois tribes joined together to form the Iroquois Confederacy. This was the biggest threat to the
