What was the life of the plains Indians before and after the arrival of large numbers of American settlers?

The Natives were initially overwhelmed by new European diseases like smallpox, which devastated their population and weakened them. Despite that, they formed friendly links with the first settlers, teaching them essential skills to survive. In return they received guns and horses, which made life a lot easier for them as well. Then cam the Indian Acts of the mid 19th century, which saw the dislocation of Natives from their homes. They fought back, but lost in a trend, and were forced into reservations, forced to give up their lands, in return for basic food and supplies for living. The Native Americans continued to be discriminated until after the 1950s, when they were let off their reservations, and allowed to become US citizens. Now they are mostly assimilated into the American way of life, although many have called for return to traditional lifestyle.

The French admired the Indians greatly, lived among them, and readily conformed to Indian ways. They treated the Indians as equals instead of inferiors. Although they were different in many respects, the French and Indians made very good allies.because the indiana needed protection from the french colonies and the trade route
