Many atrocities were committed against the Native Americans including indiscriminate killing of men, women, and children. As more and more colonists wanted good fertile land, and access to clean water, the Native Americans were moved from existing Reservations to new less desirable lands for settlement.
American Indian pottery is very popular among collectors of southwest and western pottery. Each piece of Indian pottery is handcrafted to make a unique piece of southwestern art. Horse hair pottery made by the Navajo Indians is a popular style, but getting harder to find. The wedding vase is also a very significant piece because of what it represents.
