The Genocide of Native Americans is by far the most overlooked Genocide in history. European colonization of the “New World” directly led to the decline of its indigenous population by more than 80% and resulted in Native Americans becoming second-class citizens in their ethnic homeland. Estimated killed: 2,000,000-100,000,000.So few acknowledge this.Why is this not in our history books?
"The Trail of Tears" was the forced relocation and movement of Native American nations from southeastern parts of the present-day United States following the Indian Removal Act of 1830. It has been described as an act of genocide. The phrase originated from a description of the removal of the Choctaw Nation in 1831. Many Native Americans suffered from exposure, disease, and starvation while on route to their destinations, and many died, including 4,000 of the 15,000 relocated Cherokee.
Situated mostly in the Northwest United States and in Canada after migrating from the Great Lakes region, the Blackfoot Indians have a rich history and culture.Blackfoot Indians were legendary buffalo hunters, and lived a mostly nomadic life following the buffalo herds.
Native America's Timeline, the last one about living anywhere they would like is alittle misleading since most stay on the reservations or nations for health care, family, lack of money to go anywhere else, many different reasons that the families are still in the same place as their ancestors.
The "Trail of Tears". In 1837, the "Indian Removal Policy" began, to implement the act of Congress, signed by the President who said "that the only good Indian is a dead Indian", Andrew Jackson in 1830. The forced march, consisted of about twenty Native American tribes that included "Five Civilized Tribes" (Creek, Choctaw, Cherokee, Chickasaw, and Seminole). They were pushed into "Indian Territory" (which later became Oklahoma).
