Native Americans

What Happened To The Native Americans During The Westward Expansion?

The Native Americans were forced to move out of their home on onto Indian Reservations. The land was not the best land, but the government promised that they would pay the Indians. Although the government wasn't always on time. This happened between 1820-1860. It took place mainly North of Nebraska and South of Kansas.

The Indians were FURIOUS!!!


What Was The Conflict?

The Native Americans: wanted land for hunting and gathering in order to get food, they were Non-Christians, and they were not white.

The Europeans: wanted land for ranching, forming and mining, they patronize Non-Christians and Non-White, and land with no permanent homes were worthless.
