Early Americans
Word Association
• Tell me what words come to mind when you hear
  “Native American”
History: Before 1492
• Common myth is that they all crossed the land
  bridge from Asia around 12,000 year ago.
• True time period is between 12,000 and 40,000
  years ago.
• Many came by boat
History: Before 1492
• Soon Native Americans created some of the most
  amazing, awe inspiring, and advanced cultures in the
  entire world.
• Population estimates before European contact
  estimated by the majority of experts range from
  50-100 million
• It is estimated that in Central America alone there
  were 25 million people living before European
  contact!
History: Before 1492
• These population estimates mean that there were
  more people living in the Americas than in all of
  Europe at the same time!
• It also tells us that Central America was the most
  populated region in the world!
Before 1492
• Native Americans lived in small towns and villages
  spread out over an area. This area would compose
  of the tribes people. In some tribes this area would
  be 1000’s of miles and encompass 100’s of thousands
  of people
Paleo-Indians
• Archaeologists call the
  time just after people
  first came to North
  America the Paleo-
  Indian period.
• They hunted Mammoth
• They dealt with Saber-
   toothed cats and other
  nasty predators that are
  now extinct.
Paleo-Indians
Paleo Indians
• Paleo Indians did not
  have bow and arrows.
  They hunted with a
  Spear that had a stone
  point. This Spear Point
  is called a Clovis Point.
Clovis Points
• Clovis: 13,500 year old
  archeological site found
  in Clovis, New Mexico
  where first Clovis Point
  found
• Clovis points found
  everywhere including
  PA and NY
Clovis Point vs Head
History: Before 1492
• Large societies and huge cities were not just in the
  Native cultures of the Aztec, Maya, and Inca. In
  North America there were huge cities and complex
  societies.
• The ancient Mississippian city of Cahokia was
  located near modern day St. Louis, Missouri.
• It stretched for 5 miles and had Pyramids
  bigger than the Great Pyramids of Giza in
  Egypt.
• It had a population of 15,000 which made it
  the largest city North of the Rio Grande.
History: Before 1492
• The Cultures of North America had complex trade
  relations and monetary systems.
• Shell Beads from Florida, Obsidian from the Rocky
  Mountains, and mica from Tennessee, all found there
  way to the North East.
• Mother -of-Pearl from the Gulf of Mexico found its
  way to Manitoba, and Lake Superior copper found its
  way to Louisiana.
History: Before 1492
• Native Americans had the most complex system of
  agriculture in the entire world.
• They were able to cultivate the land heavily without
  having a deep impact on it.
• Many of the first explorers of the Americas wrote of
  the miles and miles of maze fields.
History: Before 1492
• Native Americans had a huge impact on animal
  populations
• Native Americans kept animal populations in check.
• Ex: There were more Bison on the continent
  immediately after European settlement than before
  they came due to the effects of disease and war on
  Native American population.
History: Before 1492
• Almost 400 years before European contact the
  Iroquois nation had developed one of the first
  representative governments.
• The government was devised of 5 separate nations
  and was highlighted by its written constitution, equal
  rights, and checks and balances on powers.
• Sound familiar?
1492:The Truth about Columbus
• http://www.youtube.com/watch?v
  =2wm0EvTk8o4
• Facts:
• 1. Columbus did not discover
  America
  2. Columbus was a slave trader
  for the East Indian trade
  Company
  3. Columbus enslaved the Taino
  or Arawak natives
  4. Columbus’s actions directly
  resulted in the death of
  thousands and perhaps millions of
  Arawak Indians.
  5. Columbus was not the first
  explorer in America
European Exploring Explosion
• Over the next 100 years Europe sent hundreds of
  explorers to not only explore the American
  continent, but more importantly CLAIM the land
  already settled by the natives for their European
  homeland.

• http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/united_states/exploration
Consequences of Exploration
• Each expedition spelled catastrophe for the Native
  Americans
• Each expedition was accompanied by a large
  population of pigs in order to feed the explorers.
• These pigs traveled freely and spread disease to the
  natives and their sources of foods such as deer and
  other game.
• It is estimated that the native population in some
  areas were reduced by 98% before any permanent
  European settlement was even established.
Consequences of Exploration
• Many later settlers would remark on Indian ghost
  towns or how the shores were full of bleached
  Indian bones.
• With a total loss of Native population in some areas
  fields were unmanaged and grown over, animal
  populations grew out of control(Bison, Carrier
  Pigeon), children were left orphaned.
• European settlers saw this as a gift from god and
  took over empty Indian villages. (Plymouth)
Broken Promises
• After helping the English survive at Jamestown and
  Plymouth the Native American tribes along the New
  England coast signed several peace treaties with the
  English and looked to live peacefully with their new
  allies.
• Meanwhile disease continued to ravage the Natives
• These treaties would soon be ignored as the English
  colonist continued to push more into the interior.
Attitudes Change
• As anger and racism grew among the English colonist
  near the Massachusetts Bay Colony, a war broke out
  with the peaceful tribe called the Pequots.
• This would be the first major war which would mark
  the beginning of the Indian Wars, the longest running
  conflict in American History.
The Pequot War
• Beginning in 1636 this short war would culminate in
  the almost comlete eradication of the Pequot tribe.
• The war was characterized by the Mystic River
  Massacre. The massacre ended the war and ended
  the Pequots as a tribe
• The Mystic River Massacre happened when a small
  strike force of colonial militia surrounded a Pequot
  village and set it on fire.
• As the men woman and children fled the burning
  village they were shot down. In all close to 700
  Pequots died in the massacre.
War
• http://www.legendsofamerica.com/na-indianwartimeline.ht
The French and Indian War
• Over 100 years after the Pequot War the native
  Americans were still signing false treaties and
  attempting to deal with the influx of colonizers unto
  their homeland.
• Unlike the British and Spanish, the French did not
  attempt to colonize America. They simply set up
  Fur trading areas with the natives.
• The French and Indian war was costly for the natives
  because it split many of the tribes.
• The French lost and the British felt the native
  territory was now open for settlement
The Proclamation of 1763
• To try and ease Native American and colonist’
  relations King George enacted the Proclamation of
  1763. It stated the colonist could not settle the land
  west of the Appalachian mountains. This land was
  considered Indian land.
• This angered the colonist greatly and was one of the
  leading causes of the American Revolution.
The American Revolution
• The American Revolution further split the Native
  American nation and was devastating to the
  Iroquois( Haudenosaunee) Nation .
  The Expedition you are appointed to command is to be directed against the hostile
  tribes of the Six Nations of Indians, with their associates and adherents. The
  immediate objects are the total destruction and devastation of their settlements,
  and the capture of as many prisoners of every age and sex as possible. It will be
  essential to ruin their crops now in the ground and prevent their planting more.
  I would recommend, that some post in the center of the Indian Country, should
  be occupied with all expedition, with a sufficient quantity of provisions whence
  parties should be detached to lay waste all the settlements around, with
  instructions to do it in the most effectual manner, that the country may not be
  merely overrun, but destroyed.
  Orders of George Washington
  to General John Sullivan
  At Head-Quarters
  May 31, 1779
The American Revolution
• When your army entered the country of the Six
  Nations, we called you Town Destroyer: and to this
  day when that name is heard our women look
  behind them and turn pale, and our children cling
  close to the necks of their mothers. Our counsellors
  and warriors are men, and cannot be afraid; but their
  hearts are grieved with the fears of our women and
  children, and desire that it may be buried so deep as
  to be heard no more.
• Seneca Chief Cornplanter
  To George Washington
  1790

The Consequences
• The American revolution was devastating to Native
  Americans.
• It united colonists and eliminated any voice to
  oppose colonial encroachment on Native American
  lands.
• What was to follow was a new organized program
  designed to deal with the “Indian Question”
The “Indian Question”
Assimilation
• Native American children were taken from their
  families and sent to boarding schools where they
  were forced to let go and change who they were.
• They were often abused severely and ridiculed for
  being different.
• The natives were expected to stop practicing their
  religion and convert to Christianity.
• http://www.youtube.com/watch?v
  =qDshQTBh5d4&feature=related
Removal
• Indians were forced to move from their ancestral
  homes and go westward onto reservations.
• These reservations were often placed in poor areas
  unsuitable for growing traditional crops.
• If the natives were like the Apache and did not
  practice traditional farming they now had no other
  choice since they were unable to travel and hunt
  game.
• Removal was first proposed by Jefferson and
  attempted by Madison.
• It was not until Andrew Jackson ignored the
  Supreme Court that removal actually happened
Removal
• http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiVXJSXlptY
• Commissioner of Indian Affairs Luke Lea set forth
  the doctrine in 1851 by calling for the Indians'
  "concentration, their domestication, and their
  incorporation."
• The Indian Office promoted these objectives by breaking up the "habits of
  savage life" by instilling "civilized" values through forced education, by
  insisting on agricultural labor, and by pushing the notion of private
  property and the development of monetary funds. To this end, the
  reservation was conceived as a controlled society where the habits of
  civilization could be molded under the direction of the Indian agent and
  agency personnel. From 1880 to 1934, ethnocide became an officially
  sanctioned policy.
Annihilation
• Sand Creek Massacre
• Wounded Knee Massacre
• Hundreds of other examples
• "I did not know how much was ended. When I look
  back now from this high hill of my old age, I can see
  the butchered women and children lying heaped and
  scattered all along the crooked gulch as plain as I saw
  them with eyes still young. And I can see that
  something else died there in the bloody mud, and was
  buried in the blizzard. A people's dream died there. It
  was a beautiful dream...”
  Black Elk, Oglala Holy Man ...on the aftermath of the
  Massacre at Wounded Knee
Fighting for Their Right to Survive
• Native Americans today as in the past are continually
  fighting for their rights. And gain awareness of the
  latent racism and genocide they have has to endure
  for the last 500 years.
• A.I.M
http://www.aimovement.org/
Native Americans Today
• Most of the Native Americans today live on
  reservations.
• These reservations are often the poorest places in
  the United States
• 3 million Native Americans in 2004.
• 1 million living on Reservations
• The majority live in Urban areas throughout United
  States

  • 4.
  • 5. History: Before 1492 • Soon Native Americans created some of the most amazing, awe inspiring, and advanced cultures in the entire world. • Population estimates before European contact estimated by the majority of experts range from 50-100 million • It is estimated that in Central America alone there were 25 million people living before European contact!
  • 6. History: Before 1492 • These population estimates mean that there were more people living in the Americas than in all of Europe at the same time! • It also tells us that Central America was the most populated region in the world!
  • 7. Before 1492 • Native Americans lived in small towns and villages spread out over an area. This area would compose of the tribes people. In some tribes this area would be 1000’s of miles and encompass 100’s of thousands of people
  • 8. Paleo-Indians • Archaeologists call the time just after people first came to North America the Paleo- Indian period. • They hunted Mammoth • They dealt with Saber- toothed cats and other nasty predators that are now extinct.
  • 10. Paleo Indians • Paleo Indians did not have bow and arrows. They hunted with a Spear that had a stone point. This Spear Point is called a Clovis Point.
  • 11. Clovis Points • Clovis: 13,500 year old archeological site found in Clovis, New Mexico where first Clovis Point found • Clovis points found everywhere including PA and NY
  • 13. History: Before 1492 • Large societies and huge cities were not just in the Native cultures of the Aztec, Maya, and Inca. In North America there were huge cities and complex societies. • The ancient Mississippian city of Cahokia was located near modern day St. Louis, Missouri. • It stretched for 5 miles and had Pyramids bigger than the Great Pyramids of Giza in Egypt. • It had a population of 15,000 which made it the largest city North of the Rio Grande.
  • 14.
  • 15. History: Before 1492 • The Cultures of North America had complex trade relations and monetary systems. • Shell Beads from Florida, Obsidian from the Rocky Mountains, and mica from Tennessee, all found there way to the North East. • Mother -of-Pearl from the Gulf of Mexico found its way to Manitoba, and Lake Superior copper found its way to Louisiana.
  • 16. History: Before 1492 • Native Americans had the most complex system of agriculture in the entire world. • They were able to cultivate the land heavily without having a deep impact on it. • Many of the first explorers of the Americas wrote of the miles and miles of maze fields.
  • 17. History: Before 1492 • Native Americans had a huge impact on animal populations • Native Americans kept animal populations in check. • Ex: There were more Bison on the continent immediately after European settlement than before they came due to the effects of disease and war on Native American population.
  • 18. History: Before 1492 • Almost 400 years before European contact the Iroquois nation had developed one of the first representative governments. • The government was devised of 5 separate nations and was highlighted by its written constitution, equal rights, and checks and balances on powers. • Sound familiar?
  • 19. 1492:The Truth about Columbus • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =2wm0EvTk8o4 • Facts: • 1. Columbus did not discover America 2. Columbus was a slave trader for the East Indian trade Company 3. Columbus enslaved the Taino or Arawak natives 4. Columbus’s actions directly resulted in the death of thousands and perhaps millions of Arawak Indians. 5. Columbus was not the first explorer in America
  • 20. European Exploring Explosion • Over the next 100 years Europe sent hundreds of explorers to not only explore the American continent, but more importantly CLAIM the land already settled by the natives for their European homeland. • http://epe.lac-bac.gc.ca/100/206/301/lac-bac/passages-ef/pa • http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/united_states/exploration • http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/united_states/exploration
  • 21. Consequences of Exploration • Each expedition spelled catastrophe for the Native Americans • Each expedition was accompanied by a large population of pigs in order to feed the explorers. • These pigs traveled freely and spread disease to the natives and their sources of foods such as deer and other game. • It is estimated that the native population in some areas were reduced by 98% before any permanent European settlement was even established.
  • 22.
  • 23. Consequences of Exploration • Many later settlers would remark on Indian ghost towns or how the shores were full of bleached Indian bones. • With a total loss of Native population in some areas fields were unmanaged and grown over, animal populations grew out of control(Bison, Carrier Pigeon), children were left orphaned. • European settlers saw this as a gift from god and took over empty Indian villages. (Plymouth)
  • 24.
  • 25. Broken Promises • After helping the English survive at Jamestown and Plymouth the Native American tribes along the New England coast signed several peace treaties with the English and looked to live peacefully with their new allies. • Meanwhile disease continued to ravage the Natives • These treaties would soon be ignored as the English colonist continued to push more into the interior.
  • 26. Attitudes Change • As anger and racism grew among the English colonist near the Massachusetts Bay Colony, a war broke out with the peaceful tribe called the Pequots. • This would be the first major war which would mark the beginning of the Indian Wars, the longest running conflict in American History.
  • 27. The Pequot War • Beginning in 1636 this short war would culminate in the almost comlete eradication of the Pequot tribe. • The war was characterized by the Mystic River Massacre. The massacre ended the war and ended the Pequots as a tribe • The Mystic River Massacre happened when a small strike force of colonial militia surrounded a Pequot village and set it on fire. • As the men woman and children fled the burning village they were shot down. In all close to 700 Pequots died in the massacre.
  • 28.
  • 30. The French and Indian War • Over 100 years after the Pequot War the native Americans were still signing false treaties and attempting to deal with the influx of colonizers unto their homeland. • Unlike the British and Spanish, the French did not attempt to colonize America. They simply set up Fur trading areas with the natives. • The French and Indian war was costly for the natives because it split many of the tribes. • The French lost and the British felt the native territory was now open for settlement
  • 31. The Proclamation of 1763 • To try and ease Native American and colonist’ relations King George enacted the Proclamation of 1763. It stated the colonist could not settle the land west of the Appalachian mountains. This land was considered Indian land. • This angered the colonist greatly and was one of the leading causes of the American Revolution.
  • 32.
  • 33. The American Revolution • The American Revolution further split the Native American nation and was devastating to the Iroquois( Haudenosaunee) Nation . The Expedition you are appointed to command is to be directed against the hostile tribes of the Six Nations of Indians, with their associates and adherents. The immediate objects are the total destruction and devastation of their settlements, and the capture of as many prisoners of every age and sex as possible. It will be essential to ruin their crops now in the ground and prevent their planting more. I would recommend, that some post in the center of the Indian Country, should be occupied with all expedition, with a sufficient quantity of provisions whence parties should be detached to lay waste all the settlements around, with instructions to do it in the most effectual manner, that the country may not be merely overrun, but destroyed. Orders of George Washington to General John Sullivan At Head-Quarters May 31, 1779
  • 34. The American Revolution • When your army entered the country of the Six Nations, we called you Town Destroyer: and to this day when that name is heard our women look behind them and turn pale, and our children cling close to the necks of their mothers. Our counsellors and warriors are men, and cannot be afraid; but their hearts are grieved with the fears of our women and children, and desire that it may be buried so deep as to be heard no more. • Seneca Chief Cornplanter To George Washington 1790
  • 37. The Consequences • The American revolution was devastating to Native Americans. • It united colonists and eliminated any voice to oppose colonial encroachment on Native American lands. • What was to follow was a new organized program designed to deal with the “Indian Question”
  • 39. Assimilation • Native American children were taken from their families and sent to boarding schools where they were forced to let go and change who they were. • They were often abused severely and ridiculed for being different. • The natives were expected to stop practicing their religion and convert to Christianity. • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =qDshQTBh5d4&feature=related
  • 40. Removal • Indians were forced to move from their ancestral homes and go westward onto reservations. • These reservations were often placed in poor areas unsuitable for growing traditional crops. • If the natives were like the Apache and did not practice traditional farming they now had no other choice since they were unable to travel and hunt game. • Removal was first proposed by Jefferson and attempted by Madison. • It was not until Andrew Jackson ignored the Supreme Court that removal actually happened
  • 41. Removal • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiVXJSXlptY • Commissioner of Indian Affairs Luke Lea set forth the doctrine in 1851 by calling for the Indians' "concentration, their domestication, and their incorporation." • The Indian Office promoted these objectives by breaking up the "habits of savage life" by instilling "civilized" values through forced education, by insisting on agricultural labor, and by pushing the notion of private property and the development of monetary funds. To this end, the reservation was conceived as a controlled society where the habits of civilization could be molded under the direction of the Indian agent and agency personnel. From 1880 to 1934, ethnocide became an officially sanctioned policy.
  • 42. Annihilation • Sand Creek Massacre • Wounded Knee Massacre • Hundreds of other examples • "I did not know how much was ended. When I look back now from this high hill of my old age, I can see the butchered women and children lying heaped and scattered all along the crooked gulch as plain as I saw them with eyes still young. And I can see that something else died there in the bloody mud, and was buried in the blizzard. A people's dream died there. It was a beautiful dream...” Black Elk, Oglala Holy Man ...on the aftermath of the Massacre at Wounded Knee
  • 43. Fighting for Their Right to Survive • Native Americans today as in the past are continually fighting for their rights. And gain awareness of the latent racism and genocide they have has to endure for the last 500 years. • A.I.M http://www.aimovement.org/
  • 44. Native Americans Today • Most of the Native Americans today live on reservations. • These reservations are often the poorest places in the United States • 3 million Native Americans in 2004. • 1 million living on Reservations • The majority live in Urban areas throughout United States • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =dq0Joi1ELps&feature=fvw
