What intervention by the Europeans affect the lives of the Native American?

Europeans valued everything in money terms. Native Americans wanted to live in balance with nature. The Native American population decreased due to disease, war, and government removal to land that would not support them. Native Americans easily became sick from European-imported illnesses. Epidemics of smallpox and measles killed many. The Native American way of life changed after trading with the Europeans. At first Native Americans wanted metal products which they couldn't make themselves, such as axe-heads and knives. Later they realized the value of guns. Having guns and horses completely changed the way Native Americans hunted for food. After the Revolutionary War officially ended in 1783, settlers again poured into Native American territory. This forced Native Americans to move westward. Native Americans had no concept of "private property". Because of this many treaties were signed giving "white men" the right to take the land.
