The Cheyenne tribe was affected the most out all of the Indian tribes. They endured a lot of pain and suffering during the westward expansion. Westward expansion had a negative effect to the Indian tribes. The United States almost wiped out all the Indians in America. Cheyenne’s was pushed around for a long time before they started to rebel. “Even a small mouse has anger.” When the Cheyenne start to rebel they went into war. This became a turn in events to the Cheyenne tribe. Cheyenne tribe lived in South Dakota, Colorado, Nebraska and many more places. They were called the great plains warriors. They were dressed in deer and buffalo skin. The women were in charged to make the clothes this, includes the costumes of the ceremony. Serval …show more content…
This made the Indians rebel against the whites even more. The Indians was asked to move to an off reservation this resulted into violence. The years to come was called the Indian wars. The first big battle was called Powder River. On June 25, 1876 the American army was trying to round up all the northern Cheyenne and the Lakota tribes and try to put them on a reservation. This leads to a battle which the army commander was killed who was Lt. col. George Custer. This made the Americans outraged. Five months after the battle the army attacked their camp, which had 1,200 Indians. this was the biggest impact to the Cheyenne tribe. If that wasn’t enough the American army was killing the buffalos to start to eliminate the Indians food source. Many of the Indians died because of this. the biggest impact on all the Indian tribes was the battle of Little Bighorn. This was the greatest battle and win for the native americans. Over 262 soldiers died with, only 63 Indian soldiers died. After the battle the american army forced 1,000 Indians onto a reservation. Most of them died along the way there because of malaria and different type of illness. Some of the Indians tried to run away and go back to Montana but most of them was caught and killed on the spot. Little wolf and some of his companies was the only ones that made it back to Montana. These were
The biggest impact the United States had on the Native American society was that they kept pushing them off of their land. There is a quote from Chief Joseph from document 4, Perspectives from the Chiefs, talking about how the United States keep taking things that aren't rightfully theirs. He compared the US government to grizzly bears and Native Americans as deer. The grizzlies who repeatedly went at the deer needing more. Even after the US was given more land they asked for more. Year after year they were pushed further west and then all around when manifest destiny began. Document 1 shows a map of Native American land loss from year to year. The NAtive Americans have been pushed around since the first English settlers came over. They had lost most of their land between 1850 and 1870. (Doc 1) The US invaded peaceful lands of the Native Americans out of pure greed. In document 3, 2nd Treaty of Fort Laramie 1868, shows a map of a piece of land owned by Indians with a treaty and a few years after. In 1868 there was a treaty that was signed so that Americans couldn’t even enter the land. After gold was found in that area the treaty did not matter. ( Doc 2) The forced them into a reservation nearly ten times smaller than their original land area. Court actions made it worse, their land was even smaller. America forced the Native Americans to go and move to places they did not want to go despite treaties and people’s actions.
The Comanche have most recently been found in the Southern Plains, which stretches from Nebraska to the northern part of Texas. They were fully in Texas by the 1700’s. It is believed that the Comanche derived from the Shoshone Indians, found in Wyoming. The language spoken by the Comanche is actually a form of Uto-Aztecan language that when compared to the Shoshone language, the two are very similar. The Comanche’s were great warriors and did not really indulge in religious practices too much nor did they use folktales or legends very often.
It held many struggles and disagreements, which lead to many retaliations, from both the Indians and the settlers. The Indians had been alliances with the white men until the massacre, which stated the settlers betrayal to all tribes.
The Sioux and Chippewa Indian tribes’ have a drastically different way of living compared to what other people are accustomed to in terms of their history, clothing, tools, and weapons needed for survival. The Sioux Indians were originally from Asia, but migrated to America about 30,000 years ago. Their long, straight jet-black hair resembles that of the Asian descendants. The Sioux tribes were located in The Great Plains, which consists of 7 different states Minnesota, Wisconsin, North and South Dakota; however, they were also known to live in parts of Nebraska, Illinois, and Montana. “The name Sioux is an abbreviation of Nadouessioux. (Britannica) The name was given to them by the Ojibwa (Chippewa). Sioux means, “Little snake”. The Sioux tended to follow the pattern of the buffalo, which is why they are found in multiple locations.
Native Americans were primarily affected by westward expansion in the sense that it was the reason they not only lost their land, but they lost their culture and rights. The words of Santana, Chief of the Kiowas, are a perfect description for this, “These soldiers cut down my timber; they kill my buffalo...”.
At first, this tribe moved from the Great Lakes region to the North Dakota area. This happened in the 1600-1700s. Also at this time, the Cheyenne were a sedentary tribe who relied on agriculture and pottery. Though, in the 1800s, they decided to abandon this lifestyle and
Before the arrival of white people to the continent, Native Americans still engaged in war between the various different tribes. Their reasons for fighting each other were drastically different than the reasons they had when fighting non-Indians. Some Native American battles were fought for revenge. The most common cause of war between Native American groups was probably to defend or enlarge tribal territory. Later, their conflicts with white people were fought for trying to prevent the theft of their land, or in raids for food and supplies they were denied. There have been many famous clashes between Indians and the United States government. On November 4th 1791, In what is considered the worst ever defeat administered by Indians to U. S. troops more than 600 soldiers were killed by a force of mostly Shawnees and other Indians. The cause of the conflict was settlers moving into the Indian’s land in large numbers, ignoring Indians rights and demanding military protection if the Indians opposed them. This kind of situation was the cause for many of the largest fights with Native Americans, for example the battle of little big horn (otherwise known as Custer’s last stand) in which Indians that were ready for the arrival of the Calvary killed every soldier under General Custer’s command. A battle which United States
In the third document, Treaty of Fort Laramie, shows over the years how much the Americans took the Native’s land. In 1868, the Lakota nation had mostly the Western land and over 10 years the Lakota land shrunk in size because of the US pushing them away from building the transcontinental railroad. In 1868, the Second treaty of Fort Laramie gave tribes, the Sioux and Cheyenne, a large reservation in the black hills of South Dakota. Then in 1874, White prospectors found gold in the Black Hill. Miners intruded onto Sioux land. Two chiefs Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, united to push back the intruder which is known as the battle of Little Bighorn.(81) The Battle was fought on June 25, 1876 near the Little Bighorn River in Montana Territory(Battle of little Bighorn).The Sioux and Cheyenne killed an entire force of of U.S troops.(78). Another document that showed how the land was taken from them is documen one. The map shows how the Native Americans lost mostly all of their land in the years of 1850-1870 that was when gold was discovered, battles, and the Sand Creek Massacre. The Western expansion cause many significant battles which cause many deaths of Native Americans as well as
The Indians were ridiculed and manipulated because of many different bills passed in the 1800’s and their land was decreasing in size and amount of food sources and land. The effects of the Indian Removal Act, Westward expansion, and the Dawes Act on the Native Americans in the 1800’s were abundant.
The Cheyenne was one of the most famous tribes of the Native American Indians. They lived on the Great Plains in what is now South Dakota, Wyoming, Nebraska, Colorado, and Kansas. During the 1800’s, the U.S. government forced the Cheyennes to move to Oklahoma. Today, there are two Cheyenne tribes. The Southern Cheyenne live in Oklahoma while the Northern Cheyenne settle in Montana.
The Cheyenne tribe was normally located by the Great Plains present day South Dakota. South Dakota had hot summers and cold winters, their location also had good hunting and grass covered prairies with some streams and rivers. So they had good planting. Some of the animals they hunted were bison also known as buffalo, elks, cougars, deer, bears, porcupines, beavers, eagles, antelopes, and wolves. The geography of the Cheyenne tribe was very well located.
Due to America’s expansion in the West, it made a very negative impact on the Native Americans there. For example, numerous amount of native Americans died due to the new diseases that they were being exposed to; such as influenza and smallpox. Additionally, Settlers tooks over large amounts of the Native Americans’ hunting grounds. Due to their inhabitants of the hunting grounds, it chased the animals that they would hunt. Lastly, the Native American population decreased. Seeing all this change being brought on to their land, Native Americans began to resist. America responded by attacking the Shawnee villages on the Tippecanoe River while Tecumseh was away, looking for allies. __________________________________________________________________________________
The French and Indian War also had lasting (and devastating) effects for the Native American tribes of North America. The British took retribution against Native American nations that fought on the side of the French by cutting off their
We're going to tell you about a tribe of Indians known as the Sioux Indians. The Sioux Indians lived on the great plains. The Sioux's tribe is partially and fully located in 7 states. The states are known as Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Their natural resources include deer, beans, wild rice, and buffalo.
Cheyenne women wore long deerskin dresses, and men wore breechcloths with leather leggings. Later, Cheyenne men adopted the Plains war shirt worn by other Indians of this region. A Cheyenne lady's dress or warrior's shirt was fringed and often decorated with porcupine quills, shells, and elk teeth.
