Colonialism

Colonialism

  • During the 1600s European powers began asserting themselves in North America.

  • Who were the main colonizers of North America?

    England, Spain and France

  • Native Americans were seen as “savages” by many Europeans.

  • Generally, Europeans saw little value in Native American traditions because they were considered to be inferior.

  • What were the two main reasons for the decimation of Native Americans?

    Disease and the loss of the buffalo.


Pre colonial north america

Pre-Colonial North America

  • There were an estimated 10 million Native Americans living in what is now the US when the Europeans arrived.

  • Today, there are about 2.5 million Native Americans living in the US.

  • Although African Americans were allowed to vote in 1870…Native Americans didn’t get that right until 1924.

  • Tribes living on reservations are “sovereign” nations and are not subjected to obey state laws.

And then

And then…….

  • It’s a long story, but Native American culture faded as the newcomers gained control of the continent.

  • The United States government didn’t know what to do with their “Indians.”

  • Eventually all Native Americans were assimilated into white culture or placed on reservations and treated like 3rd class people.
