The Eighteen Treaties

In California during the 1800's it was a drastic time for the new coming settlers, and the Native American population. During the time of 1851-52 the goevernment and the Native American people created the eighteen treaties. It was a series of treaties that agreed to personal aid, 8.5 million acres of land, peace, and friedship amongst the U.S. Government, and the state of California, and the indigenous. At the time there were multiple genocides occuring mostly by the people of California. The Native Americans would retaliate in range, which would make the situations with the Californians worse and more drastic. The government knew they had to do something to put a stop to this awful act, but unfortunately these treaties didnt come into play until 1905, by then, half of the Native Amercan population was dead.

The Indian Removal Act

The indian removal act was a policy that demanded Indian territory. As a result, an Indian tribe called the cherokees refuse to move and give up their land, so as they were harshly moved, they faught their way for their freedom, and their rightful ownership for the land. So since that didnt work, 4,000 cherokees were forced on a march called the "trail of tears."
