How Can The Relationship Between The European Settlers And Native Americans Best Be Described?
- European settlers executed mass massacres on the Native Americans. The number of the total natives’ death was more than 8 million people.
- European settlers captured Natives to sell in Europe’s slave market. Even, they never left little kids too.
- Most of them, like Christopher Columbus, were tyrants, who captured women and little native girls of 8 to 10 years old for sexual slavery.
- European merchants ordered native people to collect gold, pearls, and other rich materials for them. If someone refused to do it, they punished him/her so hard (usually killed).
- Due to the atrocities of the Europeans, many groups of native people also committed mass suicide.
- They fought many battles against each other. However, Due to the intelligence and advanced weapons of the Europeans, the natives could never gain victory over them.
- During the revolutionary war of American independence, natives supported the British Empire over colonists’. Though, the British were too European; but under their ruling, natives enjoyed some special privileges.
- After the 13 colonies’ independence, the new government became hostile to the Natives. The new government created such laws to forcefully depart them from their own lands.
I think using these facts; we can best describe the relationship between European settlers and Native Americans.
However, in the 21st century, their relation starts improving quite a bit.
We hope this improvement will keep continuing in upcoming ages.
