The Dawes Act of 1887.

The Dawes Act of 1887 (also known as the General Allotment Act or the Dawes Severalty Act of 1887), adopted by Congress in 1887, authorized the President of the United States to survey American Indian tribal land and divide it into allotments for individual Indians.-Google https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8SVqqCgH2Q

Indian Boarding Schools.

Native American boarding schools were established in the United States during the late 19th and early 20th centuries to educate Native American children and youths according to Euro-American standards.-Wikipedia

Spirituality.

Native American religions are the spiritual practices of the indigenous peoples of the Americas. Traditional Native American ceremonial ways can vary widely, and are based on the differing histories and beliefs of individual tribes, clans and bands. Spirituality means something different to everyone. For some, it's about participating in organized religion: going to a church, synagogue, mosque, and so on.-https://www.psychologytoday.com/basics/spirituality

Culture.

There are 566 federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native tribes and villages in the United States, each with their own culture, language and history. Every tribe has unique traditions and distinct styles of housing, dress, and food-google. Indians today live within the larger American culture — a culture that can dominate not only Native American tribal cultures but cultures around the world.
