Native American Citizenship in USA Yuri jozaki

Problem... Native American citizenship ( or not ) in U.S.A. Perspective..... A native person

1. Introduce

I am Native American in 1890. Most Native American was care about that because most Native American women married to U.S. citizens and they were conferred with citizenship.
In 1919 Native American veterans of World War 1 were offered citizenship.
Native American were granted citizenship rights under the 1924 Act may not have had full citizenship and suffrage rights until 1948.
The American Indian Wars and Indian Wars were the multiple armed conflicts between European governments and colonists, and later American settlers or the United States government, and the native peoples of North America.

2. Describe the problems

Problems in the Dawes Act.....

1. Natives had no experience with land ownership. Individuals sold land to whites for too little money.
2. Much of the land on reservations available for allotment was too poor for sustainable agriculture.
3. The government kept resource-rich land and allotted poor parcels.

3. Evaluate

Most Native Americans did not become citizens through the Dawes Act.
And... Many Americans felt that the only solution to the "Indian Problem" was assimilation of Native Americans into Euro Americans.
I think The solution for the Indians to not having enough food was buffalo.


They did not have enough food because they did not have job.
Why did not they have job? Because they did not have ownership and also they did not have experience to work. So they could not work.

My opinion to solve this problem.....

I think when they did not have job, they could not buy anything even food to live so I think they should do some agriculture to grow some food to eat.
