The Native Americans: Were they that cruel?

“The Indians were cruel, bloodthirsty and uncivilised. They left old people and babies to die.

They made men dance with rawhide strips through their chests. They scalped their enemies.

The Indians

were peaceful

The Indians

were cruel

Scalping only came

from the Americans

and was not a actual

ritual of the natives.

Family

The Natives believed

in peace

and respect for all

living things.

They ate raw buffalo,

tearing out the meat

barbarically. Even

women did this.

Families were very

closely knit together.

They had a ritual of

the ‘Sun Dance’

War and Battle

The elders would leave

he band to

avoid slowing down the

band or being a bother

Children were

taught the honours

of fighting and

war.

The men danced with]

rawhide strips in

their chests

The natives loved their children

dearly and rarely would punish

them. Even so, the punishment

would be minor like a bowl of

water is poured on the head.

Their music was harsh and

composed of yelps,

shouts and other noises.

The women would try to have

as many babies as possible to increase

the amount of future men.

Once, a squaw killed a

young and small child

saying that he was too tiny

to travel.

A scalp to the natives was like

a ticket to the happy hunting

grounds (or heaven).
