Assigment 6 part 2 conquering and settling the west

  1. 1. Assigment 6: Comparative history- Conquering and settling the west<br />By Michael Wittman<br />
  2. 2. Indians Lose Land<br />American settlers entered Indian land to build ranches, mines, and towns.<br />This caused many showdowns between Americans and Native Americans.<br />The government moved Indians into reservations but these were far away from their native lands.<br />The Sioux were one of the biggest tribes that fought off the government.<br />Battles between Indians and the U.S. Army caused thousands to die.<br />
  3. 3. Canadian and American Treatment<br />Both countries used education to try and sway Native Americans from their traditions.<br />Indians were encouraged to go to White churches, schools, and farms.<br />Canadians let Indians raise stock and run farms but in America they could only be small farmers.<br />Indian land was not protected by either country and the amount of land given was small.<br />
  4. 4. The Sioux<br />The Sioux living in Minnesota tried to take back their homeland in 1862.<br />This mini-war started when two drunk Indians killed a family. <br />Sioux Chief Little Crow told his tribe they should either leave or fight back.<br />Soldiers defeated this group of Indians and 38 captured Indians were hung in December 1862. <br />
  5. 5. Treaty of Medicine Lodge<br />Signed by many tribes such as the Kiowas, Cheyennes, and Comanches on October 21, 1867.<br />The Indians agreed to remain peaceful, give up their land, and live on reservations.<br />White men would teach the Indians how to farm.<br />The government agreed to pay the Indians for the next 36 years.<br />
  6. 6. Education<br />Indians in Canada missed many days of school due to fishing and hunting.<br />Indian parents did not want religion taught in school which contributed to school absences. <br />In 1884 the Canadian government required Indian children between the age of 7 and 15 to attend school.<br />The biggest issue was the Indian’s refusal to accept White customs.<br />
