Sioux Natives Research Paper
It's strange to think that even after my commitment to the military, here I am living with Sioux natives. You really humble out after you give up all
your materialistic things and live for those around you. There is another white woman here named "Stands With a Fist" and her and I are getting
married. My priorities have completely changed. I cared about my family a lot more and I even have love for some animals. I abandoned the fort
because I'm very happy living with the natives and "Kicking Bird" has provided me with my very own teepee. These Sioux people are so loyal to their
friends, passionate, and loving to their families. Every since I arrived at the Great Plains, there has been a wolf following me. I decided to name him
Two Socks because

The Great Sioux War Research Paper
The Great Sioux War or The Black Hills War (1876– 1877) was a series of battles trying to force the Sioux and Cheyenne people back into the Great
Sioux Reservation. In 1868, the Treaty of Laramie was signed by Sioux leaders to give up their lands and move west onto the reservations. In 1874
LTC George Custer was tasked to reconnoiter the Black Hills (part of theSioux reservation). His primary task was to survey the land and look for
natural resources during a time of great economic depression. After the discovery of gold in the Black Hills, rumors spread and miners flooded into
the hills. Lakota Warrior, Crazy Horse, led many attacks on LTC Custer's surveying parties in the hills. Crazy Horse and his warriors were trying to
keep the white ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
Moving east was a column led by Col. John Gibbon from Fort Ellis Montana. Under the command of Gen. George Crook from Fort Fetterman
Wyoming, a column was deployed from the south near Wyoming Territory. On May 17th, Brigade General Alfred Terry moved west from Fort
Abraham Lincoln Dakota. Gen. Alfred Terry's column consisted of 879 personnel, the majority being of the 7th Cavalry under LTC George A. Custer.
On June 22nd, Gen. Terry detached Custer and the 7th Cavalry to flank from the southeast and force the Indians upstream where he planned to engage
them with a smaller force along Little Bighorn River. Custer moved to the headwaters of the Tongue and Bighorn Rive and on June 25th Custer's
Soldiers were approximately 25 miles out from a large Indian encampment southwest of his position. Custer sent out scouts, along with Crow scouts
(Indian scouts/linguist) to gather intel on the native encampment. Scouts reported a larger number than expected, an estimated 8,000 personnel
including 1,500 native warriors present in the village. They also reported that the unit's fires could be spotted from the crow's nest, giving away
Custer's position. Assessing the situation, Custer decided to advance on the enemy's position towards Wolf Mountain which was 12 miles from the
encampment. With the information gathered by the crow scouts weighing heavily on Custer's mind, he decided to attack the encampment the next day
to prevent losing contact of the Sioux. Custer split his Regiment into three squadrons: a supply train consisting of 125 personal, commanded by Cpt.
Frederick Benteen, a three troop force consisting of 175 personnel, led by Maj. Marcus Reno, and a five troop force consisting of 210 personnel with

The Battle Of The Sioux Tribe Essay
When deciding on my research proposal, I considered what I had a personal connection to me, and I wanted to learn more of what was happening at
Standing Rock. For my personal connection, we, the public, hear about the Sioux tribe protecting not only their land, but also the drinkable water that
flows through the Missouri River. The Missouri River is a vital water resource for many surrounding areas, mostly to the Sioux tribe. In many Native
American cultures, as people of the earth it is our duty to protect the earth, because at this moment it is the only planet that can provide an
inhabitable place for humans to live. Native Americans have a strong relationship with the earth, they have creation stories of how the earth came to
be. In Navajo tradition, it is said that this is the fourth and final world. We came from three previous worlds and they all been destroyed. Which
means once we destroy this world there may not be another place for humans to live. What the Sioux tribe fears is that once the pipeline starts to leak
the oil into the river, the water will be contaminated and people who use the river will not have clean water. As humans, we need water to survive. The
Sioux tribe is not only saving themselves, but as well as the rest of the surrounding states. I rarely pay attention to the news, but the pipeline protest
stood out the most. The protest was considered the biggest Native American protest in the modern day. I felt I should be informed about this, because if

Soft Hearted Sioux
In Zitkala Sa's short story The Soft–Hearted Sioux a Native American boy goes to a mission school that teaches him that killing anything is wrong.
His father is sick and unable to hunt, and he did not kill until it is too late. The young man is born and raised Native American but, is taught
Christianity in school which made him a social outcast to both his people and their ways of life. Zitkala story The Soft–Hearted Sioux, portrays that the
boy is torn between two faiths. The conflict with his father's believes and what he is taught in school leads to horrible decisions. These choices cause
him to go against both.
The beliefs of the Native Americans exhibit why the schoolboy is called soft–hearted. Native Americans believe that killing ... Show more content on

The schoolboy killed the cow and the man, going against the Christian faith, to see his father dead. His return makes him a social outcast to both
Christianity and Sioux Indians after making those awful decisions. Lonely due to the soft–hearted nature of not killing, and the knife, dripping blood,
tainted his soul. The young man continues to say, "Out into the open I started, but the snow at my feet became bloody (1850)." Free, untamed by the
white man, and brave is the Sioux Indian he starts in the open or before the mission school. The bloody snow is his change into a Christian man with a
soul tainted with murder, who let his father die because of his new soft–hearted beliefs compared to the beliefs of the Native Americans. He ponders to
himself "Yet I wonder who shall come to welcome me in the realm of strange sight...Will my spirit fly upward to a happy heaven? or shall I sink
into the bottomless pit, an outcast from a God of infinite love (1850)?" His thought process leads him to turn himself in because he fails both faiths
and now questions which were right or if they are both wrong; however, he chooses to accept his execution and see what journey he will be on after his

Sioux Indians Tribe
Sioux Indians Tribe
In my research on Sioux Indians. I will talk about the history, their language, and their current state. Also what I found to be interesting and a useful
approach for Native Americans. Native Americans and Sioux Indians lived on the Great Plans.it was known as the Lakota or Dakota. TheSioux
Indians actually came to North American from the continent of Asia about 30, 000 yrs. ago. The name Sioux means "Little Snake" which was given
to the tribe by the Chippewa Indians. They occupied territory in Minnesota, Wisconsin and North and South Dakota and was nomadic, and was
known to live in parts of Nebraska, Illinois, and Montana. Sioux Indians had a powerful tribe and was known for having a rich history. (Wikipedia,
2015)

The Themes Of Conflict In Saga Of The Sioux
Although we are not having wars with the natives today, they still face some problems. Nearly 50 percent adults on the Sioux Reservations over the
age of 40 have diabetes. The author of the book Saga of the Sioux discusses the conflicts that the characters face, the theme of the story, and the author's
point of view.
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.

This book leaves an everlasting impression with some because it definitely intensifies the sympathy for the Indians.

He was there to serve his people, and he would defend them and their rights until justice was served. One risk taken was when he entered as the first Indian to take foot inside the school at Carlisle, Pennsylvania. He traveled there with the whites not ever knowing if he would end up alive. The beginning of his adventure was a trying time. At Carlisle, he began writing and dressing as the typical white American did, and may I note that Luther disliked wearing the flannel underwear. He considered them to be uncomfortable torture and the worst thing about his new Carlisle life. Along with the unfit clothing, their housing and bedding were not adequate. They were forced to make the sleeping situation as comfortable as possible, and that was tough to do considering they used their pants for a pillow and one blanket for their top and bottom bedding. The nights were cold on the cement floors but they did whatever it took. The goal at Carlisle was for the Indians to become educated and stripped of their old Indian ways of life. They were forced to speak in English, as their native languages were not allowed. On top of having to speak English, they also had to choose an English name, and that is how "Luther" Standing Bear came to existence. Luther had risked coming to this school just to prove his bravery to his people, not ever really knowing or understanding what his adventure entailed.

For example, they said that the Indians would stay on one reservation and stay there. Later, the Government sends out Bluecoats to relocate them after they have already settled on that reservation.
