To Learn How tht Indian* Lost Iowa The story of tlie Indians in Iowa has a sad ending. When they had the country to themselves they were c. happy, generous and moral people. Of course we would not like some of their customs, such as eating dogs or scalping their enemies. But they had the good qualities of being brave and honest. Neither the Indians nor the white men understood each other. To the Indians the -white men came as thieves; while the white men thought the Indians stood in the way of progress. The Indians cared nothing for commerce or empire, for schools or churches, for cultivating the soil or clearing the forests. And the white men were no less blind to the healthful habits of the Indians, their keen sense of justice, and their care-free life- Each saw the worst of the other when they met. And so there was continual strife between the two •aces. Gradually the settlers moved in- o the Mississippi Valley from the east, like a great flood covering 'he land. Before this white tide, he red men had to retreat. They did not want to go. Sometimes hey fought for their homes. But again and again they had to say "arewell to their native villages and familiar hunting grounds as 'he pale faces pressed forward. The white men acted according o their law. For many years the government protected the Indians n the possession of their land. Always the government obtained he consent of the chiefs and head men at a solemn council, as with a foreign nation, before the sellers were allowed to live in the new country. Always something of value was given to the tribes. Yet always the Indians noticed the long, heavy shadow that the gathering number of settlers cast across their hills and valleys. And so they always signed, the treaties. There was', no choice for them. The white men were strong. Ancient Still Exhibited NEW ORLEANS iftlE) — A cen- .ury old still, first unit in a proposed repository of historic pharmaceutical articles and tools, is on exhibit at the Loyola university College of Pharmacv. Sky-writing Stunt Here Is Postponed The scheduled stunt flight and sky-writing by Pilot Art Goebel, famed aviator, over Ames on Tuesday, has been' postponed until a later date, the Tribune-Times was informed Monday. Map Showing How fowa Was Bought From Indiana ' Slump Blamed for Malaria NEW ORLEANS •OJJPJ—The depression has another crime at its door. The Louisiana state board of health reported an increase in malaria cases caused by mosquitoes breeding in gutters and other places not kept as clean as usual, due to the economic depression. The government treated the Indians as if they were children, telling them where they could live and hunt, teaching them to farm and trying to keep them from going on the warpath. As early as 1824 the three-cornered region between the Mississippi and Des Moines rivers south of a line straight east from - the northern boundary of Missouri was given to the children of Sauk or Fox Indians and white men. Halfbreeds they were called, and the place was known as tht Half-Breed Tract. For many years the Sauks, Foxes and loways had fought-the Sioux. In 1S25 the government, hoping to stop their wars, told the Sioux they must stay north of a line running from the mouth of the Upper Iowa river to the Upper fork of the Des Moines river and the other tribes were to stay on the south side. But how coald an Indian brave, hot on the trail of deer or elk, always stop at a line he could not see? And so the flghtiag continued. In 1830 the line was widened into a strip of land forty miles across, called the Neutral Ground, where none of these tribes was supposed to hunt. But still the rival hunting parties met in the forbidden territory. At last, in 1840, some Winnebagoes were moved from Wisconsin to the Neutral Ground to keep the ancient foes apart. At the same time that the Neutral Ground was established, the Omahas, loways, Otoes, Missouris, and several bands of Sioux gave up almost all of western Iowa in which the streams flow into the Missouri river. Altho the native tribes were allowed to stay there for several years, the 'government wanted to move other tribea ; to this region to'make room for settlers farther east. In 1837 some Pottawattamies were located in the southwestern part of TVH The Neutral Ground and the Mis souri slope together cost $190,000 In cash. , Within two years after 1830. however, all thought of giving Iowa to the Indians was swept aside by Black Hawk's refusal to leave, his village near Rock Island in Illinois When soldiers were sent to drive him into Iowa, he led his band of Sauks up the Rock river toward Wisconsin. He met the enemy and won a battle. But the white men were too numerous. The -war became a hunt, and at last he was captured after most of his band had been killed. When peace was made In September, 1832, at a great council held where Davenport is now located, the Indians had to give up about six million acres of their land in Iowa. The government agreed .to pay $640,000 for it. This was the Black Hawk Purchase—all of eastern Iowa south of the Neutral Ground for a distance of about 50 miles west of the Mississippi, except 400 square miles along the Iowa river which Keokuk's band of Sauks was allowed to keep because they had not gone to war. The settlers came into Iowa very rapidly. Storekeepers and farmers hurried across the river to start up in business or locate their 5 elds. It was not long before :hey wanted Keokuk's Reserve and land farther west And so it-happened in 1836, as the leaves were turning red and golden, that the government nought Keokuk's reser- •ation for $178,458.87% and a year ater agreed to pay. about $377,000 for 1,250,000, acres just w;est of the BlackiHawfe. iPflrcUase.: .-^ ^ - Those were "bad. times for the Indians. Many of them had formed the habit of drinking whiskey, and sharp traders cheated them iritli poor goods at extremely high prices. In a few years their debt* amounted to hundreds of thout sands of dollars. The traders d»r manded payment, and the settler* wanted their land. The Indiana did not want to sell, but what els« could they do? After much talk in October, 1842, the Sanks and Foxes gave up all of their htrntint grounds in central Iowa for $1,058,* 566.34, and agreed to move to Kan« sag at the end of three years. So passed the Sauks and Foxee out ol the "beautiful land." Only the Pottawattamies, Winne* bagoes, and Sioux remained on Iowa soil. They, too, had to go. In June, 1846, the Pottawattamie» gave up their reservation, which) included all of the Missouri slop* east of the Little Sioux and Missouri rivers, for/ what probably; amounted to about $700,000. In October of the same year the Win- nebagoes were moved from the Neutral Ground to Minnesota, at a cost of $190,000. And last of all, in 1851, the government secured the remaining territory in northern Iowa from the Sioux for .a little more than $340,000. Thus. Iowa was bought and paid for. ACTIVITY HINTS 1. When did the Indians give up the land where you live? 2. See if you can figure out what the government paid the Indians for Iowa. The exact cost ot every purchase can not be determined, but the amounts stated are nearly correct. The Area of Iowa is 55,596 square miles. 3. Act out the council that was held near Ottumwa in 1842 when ;he Sauks and Foxes sold Central Iowa.' You can read more about it in the May, 1929, number of the 'Palimpsest."
