When did the native American removal end?

Hard to pin down really. The largest forced removal was of the Southeastern tribes (Cherokee, Creek, et al) in the 1830's "Trail of Tears." Despite a Supreme Court decision that allowed them to stay where they were, Present Andrew Jackson ignored the decision and ordered the Army to move them west into Oklahoma Territory. After that, most Indian removal was really a matter of Indian being told they could stay on certain portions of their land and then having the US Government go back on the promises when they wanted the land for whites. This trended to push the Indians into smaller and smaller pockets of territory (reservations). Many tribes rebelled against this treatment from the mid 1800's to the end of the century. The last Battle of these Indian Wars was at Wounded Knee in 1890. This was not really a battle, since the US troops simply attacked an Indian camp with warning one morning and killed everyone in sight including women and children.

What did Native Americans have that Europeans wanted even more than gold or silver?

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 the 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.
