Relations between Colonists and Native Americans

Key Events

After the French & Indian War the Native Americans that fought on the side of the french had their supplies cut off and forced to obey the rules of the british.

The Future Relationship of Colonists and Native Americans

When the American Revolution came to an the colonists forced the Native Americans onto reservations of land and they still live there to this day. So i would say the relationship has gotten worse over the years.

Response from Europe

  • When Pontiac's War happened, the British responded with not violence but peace negotiations a year after. This allowed british to improve the policies post war. The Native Americans were okay with the new policies and went along with it.
  • When the Fur Trade started the British really wanted to seize the land where it was happening
