Indian villages have been armed camps, and their younger males sought acceptance for bravery and prowess in looking and combating. Neither the U.S. executive nor tribal leaders may well hinder raids, thievery, and violence whilst the 2 teams met.
In addition to U.S. territorial growth and the belligerence of racist pioneers, Nichols cites quite a few components that ended in person wars: cultural adjustments, border disputes, conflicts among and inside tribes, the activities of white investors and native politicians, the government’s failure to avoid or punish anti-Indian violence, and local choice to preserve their lands, conventional tradition, and tribal independence.
The conflicts tested right here, Nichols argues, must be regarded as wars of U.S. aggression, a significant characteristic of that nation’s enlargement around the continent that introduced rookies into components occupied by means of hugely militarized local groups prepared and ready to protect themselves and assault their enemies.
