Week 3 Visual Representation
  1. American Indian Policy
    1. Chief Joseph's feelings
      1. Chief Joseph feels that the congressmen are making empty promises to him and his tribe. The President, congressmen, and all the men in Washington D.C. are telling him that they are friends and that he deserves justice but no action has been done to support what they are saying. Chief Joseph also thinks that everybody should be treated the same. The Indians and white men should have the same laws, have an equal chance to grow and live, be punished by the law, etc. He thinks that the Indians should be able to be free like the white men. Free to travel, stop, trade, work, practice religion, think, act, and talk and he will follow the laws. When this happens, Chief Joseph believes there will be no more war.
        1. It is possible that a lot of the Indians had trouble sacrificing their heritage and lifestyle in order to abide by the new American Indian Policy. And when they did make this sacrifice, it is possible that the Indian's heritage was almost erased. Based on the photo of Tom Torlino provided, you can tell the difference of his appearance after he attended the Indian school for three years. When he was first admitted, you can see that he is wearing the common Indian clothes and jewelry and his hair is long. After he attended the school for three years, his hair is short and styled and he is wearing what looks like a school uniform. This shows evidence of how the school erased their heritage and changed the Indian's lifestyle to conform to the American ways.
          1. In the American Indian Policy, there is evidence of the problems and concerns expressed by Chief Joseph. He thought that all men, white and Indian, should be treated equally. However, you can see that the President is biased towards Americans. Chief Joseph would have followed the American laws as long as he and his tribe were allowed to be free to do their own thing - like trading, travel, work, religion, etc. But, the President said no, that they need to abandon their heritage and lifestyle and follow the American laws anyway.

      2. President Arthur's Position
        1. The President feels that temporary solutions to the Indian's situation have been made for too long and and they need to come up with a permanent solution. In the past, the policy was that the Indians could peacefully live how they wanted in the West. However, white people began to settle out West and so the Indians kept having to move.
          1. President Arthur makes two policy suggestions. First, he recommended that the Indians follow the state and territory laws of which they live. He also suggested that the Indians could individually receive a piece of land by patent if they wanted it. He thought that this was a generous action and he proceed to say that the Indians would say thank you to him by severing their ties with their Indian Heritage and starting agricultural pursuits. His third suggestion was a liberal appropriation for the support of Indian schools.


            • i just think it's funny how the americans are making these indians follow rules and laws that they didn't agree to, when this is exactly why they ran away from the king in england.
