How did English colonists and Europeans affect the lives of Native Americans, you ask? Well, the Europeans and colonists affected the Native Americans in many ways, especially through conflict. Colonists and Europeans affected the lives of the Native Americans by taking their land constantly, killing them, and having conflict. This affected the Native Americans and their families. There would be no more Native Americans if that kept happening.
This picture shows the colonists and the Native Americans encountering.
One reason that Natives Americans were affected by the colonists or Europeans was because the colonists took most of Native American’s land. According to the chapters(or source) of history-social science for California, “ English Conflicts with American Indians”, the text states, “Both sides fought fiercely, but by 1646 the colonists had taken most of the Powhatan land.(map) " As it says in the text, this happened in 1646." The Arapaho tribe once said, “Take only what you need and leave the land as you found it.” The Native people from long ago would not want you to do this because it is wrong. According to the text, “In 1637 conflicts between English colonists and the Pequot over trade, land, and culture led to the Pequot War in New England.” Also, like it says in the text, this happened in 1637. This shows that the English colonists and the Native Americans had conflict about lots of things, including land.
