Native Americans How did the Europeans effect the native americans

There was a genocide like that started because lack of resources that was stolen from the Europeans, smallpox that started from Europeans, and they had almost no land to find good resources from Europeans. I am not picking on just the Europeans, others also did do many things that happened to affect the Native Americans sometimes more times than Europeans did. The Europeans took almost all lands from Native Americans just to be free land were everyone was welcomed (i am meaning only the Europeans to be welcomed, sometimes) or to be a royal colony so the king and queen can have a new place to be happy about and be having all the rights to say I have more land than you. Diseases that made so many Natives Americans die when they just saw the Europeans for a month to a year. Europeans affected the lives of Native Americans by taking their land, stealing many of their resources, and bringing diseases that killed.

Diseases made so many Native Americans sick and their bodies unprepared for the cold, flu, and smallpox. According to a book,” The diseases were sometimes incurable and some were curable.” When the Europeans came to the Native Americans some of the Native Americans got sick they had smallpox. When Shamans tried to help the Native people who had the smallpox some died but very little people survived the smallpox.

Another reason is that some wanted to gain trust and friendship back because of the trades for things that now the Native Americans needed. Native Americans needed horses and weapons to be feared and to become better hunters. According to one of my books , “ The Native Americans wanted to be skilled hunters ,” when i saw the text it might be why they wanted their friendship back so they can become greater hunters and the trade made them better. Even though that the colonist still traded with the Native Americans, they would be less nicer if they did something that would make the colonist mad. The colonist would give the Natives Americans with the worst or broken things that they would not even know was broken.

One of the reason is that land affected the Native Americans is that it started wars and battles that happened. One of the many battles and wars. The war of 1812 is then that people fought because colonists, and other countries wanted wanted the land. Also some wanted to have freedom from the other countries like for religious reasons or escape from death penalties.

One of the reason is that land affected the Native Americans is that it started wars and battles that happened. One of the many battles and wars. The war of 1812 is then that people fought because colonists, and other countries wanted wanted the land. Another example is the Little Bighorn battle is was also called Cluster's Last Stand it was won with a huge win for the Native American and others that help out too.

The Native Americans have experienced some very mean things that happened though years. One these things are taking land and resources these happened so long ago but Native American tribes that were affected remember it like it’s a year ago. Many still are fighting for Native American rights and freedom. Native Americans still are people who are the same as there ancestors fighting for things that they love or like.
