The author tells in the third point of the view different conflicts like Man versus Nature and Man versus Society, as well as the different themes such as Fight for your rights and watch who you trust. Natives Americans lived very different lives than we did. In Saga of the Sioux, there are two major conflicts. They are Man vs Nature and Man vs. Society. “... Immense amounts of gold were hidden in Paga Soph, the black hills.” This was definitely a conflict because because men and soldiers wanted the gold in the black hills. This is also a example of the conflict Man vs. Nature. When the men tried to mine for this gold the Natives knew what was happening and had many wars with them over rights and land. But in the past, they had signed that the land was the Natives, It was their holy land, so when they men went to mine the gold, it was not theirs to take. “During the first night of fight, 12 infants and several old people died,” This is another great example of Man vs. Nature. The weather that they were experiencing was killing them off. The Natives were not prepared for the current weather, and this killed them off. “Because they had so little land left, the santee were faced to give up their traditional way of life and learn how to farm like the White man” This is a good way to show Man

The history of the Plains Indians and the American West is very interesting. The book Our Hearts Fell to the Ground by Colin G. Calloway really goes in depth on how life was for the Native American people, as well as the progression of the American West. I really felt that the book was a good source of information on the lives of the Native Americans and had an excellent outlook on how they lived their everyday lives. This book possesses many illustrations and documents that have their advantages and disadvantages. It also touches on the subject of how White soldiers really took over the Native American land and why this time was considered “a world in flux.”
In American Indian Stories, University of Nebraska Press Lincoln and London edition, the author, Zitkala-Sa, tries to tell stories that depicted life growing up on a reservation. Her stories showed how Native Americans reacted to the white man’s ways of running the land and changing the life of Indians. “Zitkala-Sa was one of the early Indian writers to record tribal legends and tales from oral tradition” (back cover) is a great way to show that the author’s stories were based upon actual events in her life as a Dakota Sioux Indian.

"My People the Sioux" is a good literary work written in 1928. This book leaves an everlasting impression with some because it definitely intensifies the sympathy for the Indians. Luther Standing Bear, also known as Plenty Kill, portrays the dramatic and traumatic changes about the Sioux throughout their traditional way of life. As a young boy growing up, he experienced many of these hardships first hand between his people and the whites. This autobiography is quite valuable as it helps allow us to envision what really happened in the battling times of the Indians. Luther stated this quote, which to me, is unforgettable and very well said. It reads:
In his story “The Lakota Way; Joseph Marshall III adequately convinces the reader to persevere through a series of stories that allows the reader to develop a personal connection with characters. Marshall achieves this by informing the reader and using formal diction. This allows his readers to experience how perseverance can have a positive impact on one’s life. Marshall teaches us that Perseverance represents a quality in human beings that allows us to be steadfast despite the difficulty. In the folk tale “The Story of the Giant,” perseverance is abundant; Marshall utilizes the skill of teaching to persuade his audience to persevere through the story. Marshall‘s unique way of writing allows the reader to take lessons from a story and influence them to use it in their own lives. From lya the giant terrorizing people to Indians having to leave their land because of the government to Marshall’s grandfather’s stories of hardship, Marshall shows his audience how the Native Americans have always had it rough but more importantly how they persevered.
Our nation’s history has been deep rooted in the conflict involving Native Americans, ever since the beginning of America and it is one hard to get rid of even as the days go by. The impact of colonialism can be seen in Native American communities even today, and it can only be understood through a cultural perspective once you experience it. Aaron Huey, who is a photographer, went to Pine Ridge reservation and it led him to document the poverty and issues that the Sioux Indians go through as a result of the United States government’s long term actions and policies against them. One must question all sources regarding these topics because there is a lot of biased and misinformation about Native American struggles, and sometimes schools do not thoroughly teach the truth so students can get an insight. There are also different sociological perspectives in this conflict, along with many differing opinions on how to approach the problem and deal with it. This is where ideas clash because people believe their views are right regarding how to handle it.
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe currently fights to save its only water source from natural gas and oil contamination. This troubling current event has a somewhat forgotten historical analogue where very similar themes presented themselves. The Kinzua Dam Controversy, which took place in the 1950’s and early 1960’s, resulted in the displacement of over 600 Seneca Indian families and the acquisition of a large tract of traditional Seneca Land for dam building. Additionally, the acquisition of Seneca land represented a breach of “The Treaty with the Six Nations of 1794,” which explicated prevented such action by the US Government. The dam and its construction, which primarily benefitted Pittsburg, inspired a heated discourse concerning the ethics of native relocation.

By 1876, gold had been discovered in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The gold was found on Sioux land, and this region was considered sacred to the Lakota Sioux Indians. The he land was to be protected and respected by the United States Army, because of the Fort Laramie Treaty of 18681, but the Army could not keep miners off the Sioux ground, which led to the increase of Sioux grievances towards the Americans; some grievances that are still taken offense to today. These battles and negotiations soon were known at the Great Sioux War of 1876.
All humans are interested in their origins and trying to account for their existence through creation stories. Native Americans tribes are no different from the rest of humanity. The tribes’ stories explain how people came into existence, how they came to be live on the lands they do and the how people interact with nature and each other.

This group was a friendly, sturdy tribe. Just like the other Indian tribes, the Poncas wanted peace with the whites. When the government officials were setting up boundaries for the different tribes, the Poncas generously gave the government a portion of their land in exchange for protection of their persons, property, and permanent home. After ten years the treaty makers began making a treaty with the Sioux. The treaty was a territory reassignment in which the Poncas land was included. The Poncas relentlessly protested to Washington. Despite their treaty with the government, the Sioux began attacking the Poncas land and threatening the Poncas. After seven years of the Poncas being forced to work in gardens and cornfields, the government finally acknowledged their treaty with the Poncas.

In the nonfictional novel Saga of the Sioux, there are two major conflicts. The first one is man vs society. “Little White Chief carrington was engaged in a guerrilla war... Not a soldier was left alive.” The blue coats were constantly fighting with the Native Americans and in some cases not a soldier was left alive. Their wars were brutal and usually ended very deadly. The natives might have won that war but they did not win the battle. “White missionaries had tried to persuade indians to abandon their tribal religions and convert to christianity.” The white missionaries did not even give them a choice before they started to convince them to christianity. They made them go with their beliefs and they had to give up their tribal beliefs and go to christianity. The second conflict is man versus nature. “Whits minores where violating the treaty… for the yellow metal they drove white men crazy.” The gold was helping the white men but hurting the natives because it made the whites violate the treaty. It made the white men push the Native Americans off of their home grounds and leave all because of the gold. The gold made the white destroy the native’s land.
