Transcript of Amerindians' Last Stand

AMERINDIANS' LAST STAND
As I remember it was
Four hundred years ago
Since
you came to crucify
And
they were taken far away from home
There were
promises of paradise
But if they had been told that day
That
they would be sold
this way
To satisfy the souls of chosen men
See I had to look carefully
At
the shame of my ancestry
To redefine the storyline again.
MANIFEST DESTINY (JAMIROQUAI)
Superiority
was clearly meant to be
So
destiny will manifest in time
.

So where has the love all gone
A troubled trail of tears will tell the tale
Of how I was put down where I don't belong
Woman, Child and man
for sale
For
ethical slavery
is just an absurdity
How can you be alive when you are dead
With these
chains of hypocrisy
The shame of my ancestry
Forever stained by blood in which you tread.
CONFEDERACY
(SECESSION)
UNION
AMERICAN CIVIL WAR (1861-1865)
Lincoln: "I will respect
slavery; but
not secession
"
The south didn't pay attention
and they elected a president:
Jefferson Davis
NORTH
More People
Resources
Factories
SOUTH
knowledge of the region
defense/more spirits
battlefield
The North won... Two consequences:
End to Slavery (13th Amendment to the Constitution)
The USA, one nation that couldn't be separated
CLASH OF CULTURES
Pantheism
Division of land
guns to kill
cut wood
hunted more than what they needed
Result:
the Native Americans became a "minority group"
1787 - Government: peace treaties with
Native Americans.
A
1787 - The government made peace treaties

Law: "Their lands will never be taken without their consent and their freedom will never be disturbed"
But soon, change of ideas
1817 - President Monroe: "their hunting style
takes lots of lands, so, they will have to adapt
to civilization and progress or become extinct"
1830 - Indian Removal Act

"All the Indians east of the Mississippi, will
be taken to the west to a place called
INDIAN TERRITORY
CHEROKEES
adapted to the European lifestyle (Christians,
school)
This didn't save them
from Georgia to Oklahoma
(bitter winters)
1/4 of the nation perished
Lands from the Missouri river
to the Rocky mountains given to the
Native Americans but 6 years later,
NEW WHITE SETTLEMENTS
Finally, they were forced to live in dry,
rocky lands called "Reservations"
1924 - "Indian Citizenship Act"
(with this, right to vote)
1934 - "Indian Recognition Act"
(encouraged them to set up
councils to run their affairs)
BUT
far behind in health, wealth and
education
Thanks for your attention!!
