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 federal government made laws forcing Native Americans to learn English and speak only English. They trained Native American wives to be good and proper English housewives. They provided money and compliments for those who learned quickly and adjusted to the American ways. The American government did this because the American Government was against anyone being different than them. They wanted everyone to be the same as them because they were the "elite" people.
To assimilate Native Americans to white culture. Dawes Act was also a factor.

Native American groups were communal and Americans were very individualistic. The federal government sought to break Native Americans of their communal nature and force them to assimilate with the Dawes Severalty Act of 1887. The Act gave citizenship and 160 acres of land to the heads of households of individual Native American families or 80 acres to single adults or orphans. Adults could not gain full title to the property for 25 years. The Bureau of Indian affairs even sent Native American children to boarding schools to force assimilation.
