Sioux Indians Come To America

By: Allison

Push Factors:

A push factor would be that many of them were killed by others that came from the cold in their mountains. The main Push factor is that they kept getting kicked off land. So they had to find a new place to settle

Pull Factor:

Pull factors for the Sioux Indians would be that America was new land to discover new food and climate is different. Another pull factor would be no one else was on that land until years later so they had something to claim before they got forced off of their own land. Also they had time to come up with different ways to depend themselves from people that do want to take their land.

Treatment the Sioux got from the Americans and US Government


The Sioux Indians came from Asia which is now Alaska. The way they traveled over was the frozen land bridge which was believed to be there 15,000 years ago. Then they split off to different parts of America. When the Sioux came to America they weren't treated fairly even though they made multiple treaties. They made a treaty with the US but they never kept their promises. So the Sioux would start to attack settlers and kill them. Since they were killing people the US sued and killed many Sioux. The.The Sioux were put on reservations by the US. But then the US tried to take them off of that reservation because the US government found out that there was gold where they had just put the Sioux. The Sioux felt mistreated again because that was suppose to be their land and they keep taking away from them.
