The Identity Of Alaskan Natives And Native Americans And
The identity of Alaskan Natives and Native Americans and the ability to delineate tribal affiliation
has been a subject of argument for many years. The demands of federal programs determine the
blood volume required to be Native. As federal programs increase and decrease so does the blood
volume required to obtain these benefits. Blood quantum is the display of colonialism and is
gradually eroding and eradicating the roots of indigenous people and sets a precedence that a
person's blood relates to their cultural orientation and identity. "American Indians and non–Indians
have defined Indian identity through law, biology, and culture. All three overlap in specific ways,
but more significantly, all have ties to outdated blood quantum ... Show more content on

I was surrounded by love and support by my family and never did I question my authenticity until I
had to get a Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood from the Bureau of Indian Affairs. I began to
question my own sense of belonging to my own family and community. My inherited light skin and
hair did not fit the imagery of being Native and I began to question if I was "Native enough" to
celebrate my culture and heritage. What does blood quantum have to do with my heritage and
traditional values? Nothing. Blood quantum divides and alienates Native American communities and
spread internalized self–hatred, separation, and fractionation. But the sad reality is my children will
not be recognized by the US government as Gwich'in Athabascan because they do not meet the
quarter blood quantum requirements. Fortunately, the Gwichyaa Zhee Gwich'in Tribal Government
recognizes their own members and does not require blood quantum. This "validates" my children's
heritage even though they are taught traditional values, raised as a member of the tribe and are
learning the language.
Tribal enrollment is just a small portion of the equation but a very important factor to Native
American and Alaska Native identity. It is the key to validation and the continued existence to the
most documented race in the world. Native Americans and Alaska Natives are the only races that
require documentation to prove their racial identity. Tribes are forced to adopt racial codes that

Native Indians And The Native Americans
Throughout history from the founding of the New World to what we are today the Native Tribes
have been always pushed around. Never able to settle down nor were they able to make peace with
the Europeans as they took their land and killed off their tribes. Struggles with disease and European
troops, the Native Americans attempted to fight back. Most of the time unsuccessful, but the natives
did have their one or two victories. It was almost as if the Natives were nothing but balloons floating
in nothing they were just pushed aside when they were not needed for allies for war or slavery. It
never got easier for the Native Americans, never given a chance, the Native Americans were
constantly forced around and never had a place they could love and call a home. Indian Territory a
place of peace for the Native Americans somewhere they could stay and not be bothered. The
downside to this territory was that the Indians could not preserve it for so long until settlers started
to want the land."Subsequent treaties and laws gradually reduced the size of the territory" (Powers
1). The reduction of Indian Territory gradually decreased at a fast rate. For Example, due to the
settlers pushing the government to hand out land to people the government would try to secretly
migrate settlers out to the western lands. The government's motives were to move and reduce the
Indian Territory to as little as possible and with any chance they got the Indians would be moved.

  • 9. Native American And Native Americans Americans have long been fascinated with the imagery and lore of Native Americans. From early historians to Mark Twain to Hollywood, Native Americans have been viewed as savages, aggressors, monotonal in voice, and drunks. Native Americans have had a strong influence on America's birthplace including environmental issues to the diet and foods we eat. It was not until the arrival of the European settlers that Native Americans faced the deterioration of their civilization and culture. Events of the past have proven the relationship between European settlers and Native Americans have not always been pleasant. The extended history between these two groups has had a negative impact on indigenous people, due to the loss of life and culture. Since the arrival of Europeans, Native Americans have been culturally degraded and discriminated against in the United States through the taking of land, the denial of religious freedom, and the direct impact of health and welfare. Since the arrival of the Europeans, Native Americans have struggled to maintain ownership of their land and sacred burial grounds. American Indian author, Vine Deloria, Jr., author of "God is Red", wrote about the Aboriginal World and Christian History. He explained that, "The status of native peoples around the globe was firmly cemented by the intervention of Christianity into the political affairs of exploration and colonization. They were regarded as not having ownership of their lands, but as merely ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

AIM members believed that the accomplishment of these goals would result in a prominent Native American future in the United States, (Wittstock & Salinas, n.d.). AIM was established in 1968 in Minneapolis Minnesota and was most influenced by the leaders Dennis Banks, Clyde Bellecourt, and Russell Means.

In doing so, White Americans have oppressed Native People while simultaneously obsessing over their culture.

According to Michel Foucault, "the more recent researchers of psychoanalysis, linguistics and ethnology have 'decentred' the subject in relation to the laws of his desire", and the concept of desire has assumed an important but varied function in the field of theory.1 Freud's essay 'Beyond the Pleasure Principle' takes us closer to understanding the formal organization of desire – the illusion of a striving toward perfection is here explained by instinctual repression and the persisting tension of the repressed instinct, and the resulting difference between the pleasure of satisfaction demanded and that achieved. In Beyond the Pleasure Principle and Other Writings Freud says: ...The gulf between the level of gratificatory pleasure demanded and the level actually achieved produces that driving force that prevents the individual from resting content with any satisfaction he ever contrives, and instead –as the poet says–he 'presses ever onward unbridled and untamed.'(Mephisto in Faust I, Faust's Study) ...

If there is no conflict, they can coexist. Many cases of Native Title extinguishment has occurred, and only approximately 600 areas hold Native Title in all of Australia, with less than 1% in NSW.

After Captain Cook, missionaries continued to travel to Hawaii to, in their opinion, help the Hawaiian people.

However, the help that the Hawaiians received led to them being demoralized and hurt psychologically and physiologically. In order to succeed, underdogs often need the assistance of others. However, too much aid from others can result in the help becoming the underdog's Goliath instead of their savior.

Before Captain Cook stumbled upon Hawaii, the Hawaiians lived in harmony with the 'aina, or the land. They lived by ahupua'a, or strict land divisions that respected the natural landscape. Communities were created around rivers and water sources. The Hawaiians had a strict law system called the kapu. They lived with great respect to the land and believed in demi–gods such as Pele, the goddess of the volcano, or Mau'i, who was believed to have pulled the islands out of the ocean in order for people to live on the land.

  • 98. Native Americans : The Native American People The Native American people were a humble and self–sustaining race that was taken advantage of and exploited for their generosities. You will see that the Europeans will maneuver and essentially take a land inhabited by Native Americans by a series of actions that took place in the late 1400s to the late 1770s. Europeans will display acts of what seem to be kindness but is just a an act that in turn will weaken the Native American people. The Native Americans lived in a very open area with no established form of defense, such as a wall, from outside threats. Their homes were built from materials they found in nature, like trees to keep their structure vertical and brush to act as a roof. The Europeans lived in a more established community with boundaries and protection from foreign threats. Their homes were built of masonry construction, mainly stone and rock. When the Europeans first arrived on Native land, the Natives greeted them with open arms and curiosity. They were led by a man named Christopher Columbus. They were intrigued with things they had never seen before. For example, the Natives used cane for their spears for hunting but they were shown a weapon made from steel called a sword. After Columbus realized how trusting they were, he had taken a few of them as prisoners in search for gold. He enslaved the people who had just welcomed him and offered him peace. He treated them like incompetent people that he had planned to exploit for his own personal gain. ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
  • 102. Native Indians In Native Americans According to most people, the Native Americans were savage violent people. They were practically animals, who lived in tents and yelled HOW! These are false accusations, actually very ignorant accusations. It's not really one person's fault for our thinking like this, it's what's portrayed to people through books and T.V. It's just the images that have been put into people's heads, but in reality, the Native Americans were smart civilizations that just lived a little differently than people were used to. People label and fear things they don't understand. They had land torn away from them, and yet they are the ones labeled as savage and cruel. Indians, for example the Cherokees, were peaceful. The Cherokees didn't live in tents or act like animals. They were a community and family that lived from the land. The Cherokees were very artistic and smart, they made pipes and music, they also learned how to survive and thrive in the Appalachians by making intricate trails. Firstly, Cherokee indians, were no different than any average society, just slightly different to what the Americans were used to. The word Cherokee, derives from the creek word "Chelokee" and it means "people of different speech". The Cherokee actually had their own language, that differed from other tribes. They spoke in a certain dialect of the Iroquoian language, while most of the other tribes spoke in a Muskogean language.

Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... The Native Title Act 1993 was legislated following the decision in Mabo (No2). The Act itself extinguished the colonial doctrine of Terra Nullius and instead established native title rights. Terra Nullius as the name suggests is a Roman law concept, which literally means 'Land belonging to no one'. Brennan J in Mabo decision rejected the doctrine and its early derivative concepts of native title and essentially replaced it with aboriginal customs, traditions and laws which are recognised legally under Australian common law. The 1993Act provides a process through which the indigenous people can lodge an application to seek a determination of native title to their land. There were significant amendments to the Act, including the introduction of a registration test and indigenous Land Use Agreement. This mechanism allows the aboriginal people who assert that their traditional rights have not been extinguished, and also to validate retrospectively the land titles of the occupiers that may have been called into question by decisions. The judgement in Mabo (No2) depicted that until the decision, the Australian law was actually based upon the precept that with the acquisition of sovereignty ownership of all lands would become the Crown's automatically. So this practically left no room for the common law to recognise any pre–existing aboriginal law in the form of native title. The Mabo case undoubtedly changed this notion by identifying that radical title, rather than absolute beneficial ownership was a concomitant of ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

There were numerous diversities between Native American tribes prior to European arrival in North America. All tribe societies had shamans and medicine men. Natives did not feel that they owned the land, families were provided land by the tribal leaders to use for a certain length of time to hunt on as well as grow their crops for life sustainment. Along eastern North America, the Indians thrived on corn, beans and squash along with hunting and fishing. The Mound Builders of the Mississippi Valley, built structures constructed in a semicircular fashion overlooking the Mississippi River and traveled great distances to conduct trade with other natives. Western natives built enormous magnificent structures to house multiple families. They also built canals and dams to gather and bring water to their villages to sustain life.

Native American And Native Americans Native Americans have been forced out of their culture over time, forced into assimilation, lost their rights, and have lost their land due to policies and laws by the whites that can't bear the Native American way of life. There used to be many Native American tribes all throughout North America, and now these tribes are spread across the country and are blended into the rest of the population. The native ways have changed drastically in the last two centuries due to relocation programs, Indian boarding schools, and the way to classify which tribe each person belongs to. Native Americans have endured so much pain, which results from everything they have lost over time, and they have constantly paid the price for their ethnicity. To begin with, whites were against the Native American ways of life. In the 1700 and 1800's, native tribes were given the worst land for how the needed to survive with their lifestyle (Urban Relocation Program). Most were forced to live on reservations where most of the people were at or below poverty levels. The urban relocation programs were set in place to move more natives off reservations to nearby cities for better job opportunities, where they were supposed to receive stipends to live while they found work, which was not always given (Urban Relocation Program). Many natives did not prosper in the city and resort to drugs and alcohol, in which some ended in death. The idea behind relocation was to turn the natives into "urban Indians". By ...

They were able to move freely across the lands until the white men came and concentrated them into certain areas. Today there are more than five–hundred different tribes with different beliefs and history. Native Americans still face problems about the horrific history they went through and today 's discrimination. The removal of American Indian tribes is one of the most tragic events in American history. There are many treaties that have been signed by American representatives and people of Indian tribes that guaranteed peace and the values of the Indian territories. The treaties were to assure that fur trade would continue without interruption. The American people wanting Indian land has led to violent conflict between the two. Succeeding treaties usually forced the tribes to give up their land to the United States government. There were laws made for Native American Displacement that didn't benefit the Native Americans, these laws still have long lasting effects on them today, and there was a huge number of Native Americans killed for many reasons. Cultural differences between the English and Native Americans took a toll of the Native American population.

Nothing like that ever seemed to bother you" (Freedman, Scene I). This is very important to the film due to the fact that it communicates the audience two extremely important things about Bigger's character. The first fact being that he isn't concerned with how other people feel and the second being that the thought of death doesn't affect or bother him.

Almost every battle that has taken place has been documented. When stories of past battles are retold, only one side of the tale gets told, the victor's side. In history, the ones who have been defeated never get to present their perspective of the tragic quarrels. Most never even lived to tell the stories, but the ones who do survive are not thought of as important accounts in history. The Native Americans suffered tyranny far a plethora of years, and still do. When learning about the indigenous people of America, it is taught through the "white man's" prospective, never through the eyes of the sufferers. By not telling both sides of the story, the facts get skewed, skewed enough to have lies become the truth. So what is the real story behind Native American oppression? The relationship between natives and the incoming settlers sparked when the East side of the United States started to be colonized. There were many documented cases when it comes to first encounters between the two parties, but each individual interaction was diverse in documentation. The best archive of first encounters involved a tribe called the Powhatan. From the very beginning the colonist were not looking to make new friends, but to conquer and gain new land.

  • 138. Native American Native Land To be a Native American, one is not just born into the ethnicity, but it is the sacredness of the culture, language, religion, and land that makes a person a true Native American, and without these things, there are no Indigenous people. Developing a culture is human nature, and for Native Americans, their culture revolves around the land, and to take that away is to take away who they are. The land may not physically be a part of Native Americans, but without their sacred land, there is a missing part of them. The building of telescopes on Mt. Graham is one example of how the sacred Native land is being taken over. Just like how a wheel is a part of a chariot, the sacred land is part of a Native American, and without it, Native Americans are not whole. Their culture is seen as inferior to white culture because of the Racial Contract, and is why their land is treated with disrespect. Native Americans' sacred lands needs to be treated with respect and protected because without it, they are no longer Native Americans, they are a group of people without a culture to be a part of. The word sacred is defined as: "considered to be holy and deserving respect, especially because of a connection with a god; connection with religion; considered too important to be changed" (Cambridge Dictionary).

Many reservations have actually created a sense of confinement and detachment. The reservations have limited resources which separates them from the American Culture and society.

  • 150. Native American And The American Of Native Americans The Native American population has suffered many tragedies at the hands of the United States government, from their first interactions through the mid–twentieth century. Government policies concerning American Indians worked in conjunction with the prejudices harbored by the majority of the white population in the United States to suppress Native American liberties and strip them of their cultural identity. These policies gave little to no regard for Native American customs, personal expression, or the future of Native American traditions, and had profound effects on the Native American individuals and families who encountered them. The boarding school policies enacted by the United States government regarding Native Americans that were formulated to encourage the destruction of native customs and force an entire race to assimilate into white American culture ultimately led to the alienation of Native Americans from their native heritage and a loss of their personal sense of self. Several government policies were created to control the attire and language of Native Americans. Among these were targeted regulations regarding how Native American students in boarding schools were to dress, act, and speak, oftentimes against their will or traditions. It was common for students to be prohibited from speaking their native language, encouraged instead to read, write, and speak in English only.

Native Son displays a series of events and decisions made by Bigger that will alter his life. The purpose of this essay to examine Richard Wright's film adaptation of Native Son, and to argue that Bigger Thomas proves to be guilty of murder due to being present with the victim, him covering up the crime, and his history of violence. Wright's 1940 novel, Native Son had stirred up real controversy by shocking the sensibilities of both black and white America. Wright was inspired to make his readers feel the reality of race relations and that is how Native Son came about.
