Indian Massacre

Indian Massacre | Clash of Cultures, Fighting Manifest Destiny | Scoop.it

This is a picture from Harper's Weekly in relation to a Massacre in Minnesota where a very small group of Dakota Indians killed white settlers. This picture is of a boy accusing the Indians who supposedly attacked the white men. This particular event is important because it was the Unite States governments way of justifying a war against all of the Dakota Indians, which resulted in their relocation, even though the massacre was a very small portion of their entire tribe.

Homeland Security

Homeland Security | Clash of Cultures, Fighting Manifest Destiny | Scoop.it

This is a picture of four indians with guns on a poster saying "HOMELAND SECURITY" and "FIGHTING TERRORISM SINCE 1492". The point of this is emphisizing how America is the land of the native americans and that they are the homeland security against europeans.

The Pony Express, with the dispatches and mail missing from the Pony Express which arrived Tuesday evening last, arrived here at 2:20 P.M. today. No explanation is given as to the cause of its detention.

 

This is an article from the New York Times, talking about the Pony Express in the western part of the United States. It talks about a massacre due to aggression from native tribes. This aggression from native people resulted in the death of many white people leading to the militarization of the areas around California from troops and volunteers.

Making White Men "Good" Cartoon

Making White Men "Good" Cartoon | Clash of Cultures, Fighting Manifest Destiny | Scoop.it

This is a cartoon from Harper's Weekly originally published in 1879.

 

The caption: Little Hatchet "Me know nothing abotu White River massacre. White man bad; steal, kill, get drunk and lie. Me good-make pale face 'good' too".

 

In this cartoon one can see native americans with guns infront of Uncle Sam. To me the guns represents violence and the native americans are going to use weapons to try to make the white man "good". This cartoon is a mockary of native americans and how theya re trying to fix us, when infact we are trying to fix them. The reference to the white river massacre is when indians attacked settlers.
