Termination Policy

During the 1950's the Termination Policy eliminated the reservation system for Native American tribes, all throughout the US. The reason for this was to create less for the government to waste money on and concentrate on; the Termination Policy was later given up on due to failure on the Native Americans finding jobs due to lack of training also Native Americans were given no medical aid/access. This plan was mostly effective toward Native Americans but it worked the complete opposite way was expected.
