The US Government did everything from turning a blind eye to passing legislature requiring the Indians to give up their land (see Indian Removal Bill of 1828).

    DB Jacksonian Democracy Between the years of 1775 and 1825, the United States government was hypocritical with respect to their Native American policy. The government, at most times, claimed to be acting in the "best interest" of the Native Americans.

These "beneficial" actions included relocation from their homeland, murder in great numbers, rape, and a complete disregard for ...

The population in the 1900's was beginning to overflow. In 1875 the United States government had to put a immigration restriction...
