Transcript of Native American Struggles in the 1920's

Assimilation of Native Americans
For many years, Native Americans have been pushed into the mainstream culture of the society they lived in. In the 1920’s they planned to be FULLY assimilated into mainstream American culture. American’s thought that they knew for a fact that the Native American culture would be extinct forever, but it never happened. Native Americans were not the only one. This process included immigrants. They would be changed completely to become English speaking, Christian farmers.
