REAL ANSWER: YES HITLER DID GET HIS IDEAS FROM THE AMERICANS ON HOW THEY TREATED THE NATIVE AMERICANS! HE STUDIED THE WAYS OF THE U.S. AND HOW THEY BRUTALLY MURDE…RED, TREATED, AND DISCRIMINATED AGAINST THE NATIVE AMERICANS AND TOOK HIS FINDINGS IN HIS DISCRIMINATION AGAINST THE JEWS AND HOW TO BE RID OF THEM! THERES ALOT OF THINGS TEACHERS AND TEXT BOOKS DON'T LIKE TO TEACH IN THE CLASSROOMS AND THIS IS ONE OF THEM..... THE U.S. HISTORY ISN'T AS CLEAN AS WE WOULD LIKE TO BELIEVE!.... NO, HITLER FOLLOWED THE BEAT OF HIS OWN DRUM.ALTHOUGH THE WAY THE NATIVE AMERICANS WERE TREATED WAS GASTLY TO SAY THE LEAST. HOW IN THE NAME OF GOD CAN THERE TREATMENT BE CONDONED. TREATY AFTER TREATY WAS BROKEN AS IT SUITED THE US GOVT. PEOPLE WERE PUSHED FROM THEIR LAND THAT HAD BEEN THEIRS FOR GENERATIONS. ON THE LONG WALKS MANY DIED OF STARVATION,POISONING FROM ROTTEN MEAT AND EXHAUSTION. MANY BRAVE MEN DIED OF BEING BROKEN DOWN BY THE WHITE MAN.INDIAN AGENTS SOLD THE GOODS THAT WERE TO GO TO THE NATIVES FOR PROFIT. IT IS TRULY A HORRIBLE CRIME AND A GREAT SHAME IN US HISTORY. DURING THE WAR OF 1812 MANY INDIAN TRIBES SIDED WITH THE CANADIANS BECAUSE OF THEIR HATRED FOR THE US ARMY. IT IS ALSO SAID THAT HITLER WAS ONE OF SATANS TOOLS TO GET RID OF THE JEWS (GOD'S PEOPLE)
There were a number of ways. The very real threat of annihilation if Indians didn't become 'white'. The Indians were punished for speaking their own languages. …They were persecuted for practicing their own religions. Children were routinely kidnapped and put in white schools and taught to hate anything Indian.
The saying today has been in effect for many years, and will probably exist for many more generations of Native Americans: "We do as well today as when Custer headed the BIA."
Many white Americans, especially in what is now the southeastern states, wanted the natives removed to the west because they wanted their lands and the resources under them, a…nd because, generally, they did not like or trust the natives.
The simplest answer is all of them. To date there is no single "promise" (treaty obligation) given by the United States that has been honored.
I'm entitle to monies from my native heritage
because they wanted more land and where mean and hatefull
The US government planned on taking the native Americans to a small "fort" in what is now Las Vegas!! But anyway, they took them there in intervals. And information on what th…ey did to them is still being discovered. But the information we do have is that they would chain them up and smoke them out using cannabis. They were trying to figure out how the natives had grow such a beautiful strain.
Life on the reservations changed native american culture. The federal Government took away the power of Indains leaders. In their place, it appointed government agents to make… most decisions.
As people began to move west they wanted the Native American lands, so the act made it official that the tribes were to be removed. From the very moment of the first colony th…e European settlers did their best to kill, remove, or displace the Native tribes from their lands. The government made treaties they broke and they forcibly removed people to reservations. The Union army would go into a sleeping village early in the morning and kill men, women, and children. The government policy was a " good Indian was a dead one" and they would do anything to accomplish this task. Read Black Elk Speaks or Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee for further understanding of the genocide that was committed.
Simple answer? EVERY THING They tried to make all Natives into "good white folks". In religion, dress, speach etc all ways. Policy? "Kill the Indian save the man". Didn't wo…rk very well & caused more destruction than good.
What did the American government do with the Native American populations after the army conquered them?
The Native Americans tried to defend their territory, but were not strong enough to protect themselves and their homes. They were either killed during the Indian Wars or m…oved to Indian Reservations. Even today many Native Americans still live on these Indian Reservations. The movement West displaced many Native Americans from their native homes. They were moved to Reservations that were often a long way from their native land. Not long after Congress herded the Native Americans onto Reservations, Congress enacted The Dawes Severalty Act (February 8, 1887) that deprived them of their legal status.
The US government shared with the Native Americans. They did this so that they could get land.
