Westward Expansion

Native Americans

Native Americans

The Native Americans were people who cared not only for themselves and their tribe but they also cared about other people. The Native Americans would trade things with the pioneers like food and clothes and much more stuff. The native americans would help people on their trips but the pioneers would hear that the native americans were called savages because they would kill and destroy the pioneers. Sacagawea was a Native American and she helped Meriwether Lewis and William Clark on their expedition. If it wasn't for her we probably would have had a lot more troubles getting here then before.

What does it mean to be an American in the Westward Expansion as a Native American?

What it meant to be an American in Westward Expansion was a bad thing for the Native Americans because indians were getting removed from their homes for the safety of the pioneers. Indians would leave because of a lack of food because of pioneers just killing animals as a sport. Indians were killed if they refused to leave. All indians were removed and placed in an indian reservation where they had little food, water, and shelter.
