Native American tribes lived in every state in the lower 48 and Alaska. For a variety of reasons, the tribes living in New York State are among the most written about; Oklahoma was essentially created as a place to relocate tribes who had been forced off their own land. About 16 states are named for the tribes that lived in them.

What best describes jackson's policy toward indian peoples?

He kicked soccer ball them allTHAT ^ IS NOT THE ANSWER THIS IS >Jackson also espoused removing Indian tribes in the United States to the west of the Mississippi River as one of his reforms. Jackson argued that the United States policy of attempting to assimilate Indian tribes into white society had failed and it would destroy the Indians’ way of life. Furthermore, Jackson recognized that whites desired Indian lands and he feared that if they remained in those areas that they would eventually be exterminated. Opposition groups fought Jackson’s removal policy in Congress, but their efforts failed by just a handful of votes. Congress’s authorization of removal empowered Jackson to make treaties with the Indian tribes to arrange for their removal. Jackson, who railed against government corruption, largely ignored the shady treaties forced on the various tribes and the actions of government officials. The Indian Removal process was completed two years after Jackson left office with great loss of Indian life due to corruption, inadequate supplies, and the removal of many Indians by force. Today, Jackson’s Indian Removal policy and its tragic consequences that produced the Trail of Tears is the most conspicuous blight on his presidential legacy.
