La Vida Continued from Page 3 resisted ... Following the war of 1812, the U.S. adopted a policy of the wholesale removal of Native American peoples to the Indian Territory west of the Mississippi river. Removal was made a basic tenet of most treaties. By 1830, President Jackson got the • Indian Removal Act through Congress; this authorized the president to set up districts within the Western Indian Territory for eastern peoples who agreed to relocate. Entire tribes were forced to resettle, and several wars resulted when Native Americans refused to accept resettlement. Like their counterparts in the northern plains, southern plains Indians fought against being relocated to reserva-. tions. Their resistance was incited by such outrages as the Sand Creek massacre in Colorado. On Nov. 29, 1864 John Chivington commanded his Colorado volunteers in an assault on a clump of dwellings occupied by Black Kettle and his band, who had been assured they would be unmolested on their forsaken reservation. Cheyenne men, women and children, numbering around 200, were annihilated. Indian forays onto frontier settlements in Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico and Texas came to a head in the Red River War of 1874-75. The results of this conflict were several: • The Indians were deprived of their homelands and forced to relocate to reservations in Oklahoma. • The near-extinction of the buffalo continued unabated. • The region was thrown open to white settlement, including ranching and farming. The Ute nation also rose episodically against the whites. Mormon settlers were relentlessly overtaking Ute lands and exhausting their resources and wildlife. Seeing that the Mormon intrusion was getting worse, some of the Ute precipitated a series of forays into Mormon settlements. This was called the Walker War, which resulted in orders from President Abraham Lincoln to force them onto Uintah Valley Reservation... The whole concept of this essay for me is to tell you that white people didn't even try to rebuild our society; they stuck us on reservations and told us to deal with it. Native American Indians are a people in transition between history and contemporary America. The challenge for Native Americans is to maintain their heritage, erase a stereotype and adjust their recognition in society. Native Americans are too often stereotyped by antiquated and discriminatory attitudes which misrepresent valued contributions to America's development and growth. I mean, sure the government gives us money, but we still don't have our freedom, we don't have the way of life that used to be ours that no one else could take from us. We live by their rules now.
