Who are the original founders of the U.S.? This is a conflicted question that has been argued among the Native Americans and U.S. Government. My name is Maji, I’m a Native American and I believe that my people lived among this land far longer than any explorer has acknowledged it. The Government decided they wanted to expand into our lands and move our tribes onto reservations. They took the ownership of our land, longed over the possessions of our land and broke promises made to my tribe. I believe that all these problems created between the U.S. government and our tribes can be resolved for both sides to be content.
Our tribes have been living among this land longer than many people know. All though, the strive for Americans westward expansion is more important for the U.S. Government. In the article Native Americans and the Federal Government written by Andrew Boxer states why we are being removed from the land “During the course of the nineteenth century that had been deprived of much of their land by forced removal westwards.” Instead of removing every tribe from our land and taking our property, move the westward expansion around us. The little amount of land you wouldn’t have is a better case than causing conflict. Conflict is all the government wants to proceed while removing our tribes.All though in 1934 a white man, John Collier, created a new policy, the Indian Reorganisation Act which ended the policy of allotment, band further sale of Indian land and land not yet sold should be returned to tribal control. He also reestablished respect for our culture and traditions.
