Asked in Native American History, Treaties
Why did the native American treaties with US fail?
Many of the treaties were never meant to be honored by the US government, but just made to 'pacify the savages'. It can certainly be argued, however, that those negotiating the treaties meant them to be honored. The biggest problem was that none of the treaties was ever ratified by Congress, so therefore in the eyes of the government, the treaties were invalid. Then there was the issue of who would see to their enforcement if the whites were to break the treaties.
