Thinking About History
Question 1: The first chosen lens would allow me to look for the future religious freedom that is taken away from the Native Americans. If freedom had been given back, there would still be a limitation on the procedure for practicing their religion.
The second lens chosen is legal history, which allows me to examine how the laws are placed and affected by the Native Americans. For instance, laws are allowed with widespread practice by which most of the non-Indians have mostly claimed the use of Indian resources for themselves. Without circulation, compensation and juncture have caused harm and loss to Indian people.
The third chosen lens would allow me to look further into the cultural differences between the two, and there would be similar differences causing harm and loss to Indian people.
Question 2: There were conflicts between Natives and White settlers in the early 19th century. It has shown different attributes where different causes have been raised complexly. Cultural misinterpretations, fighting over the land, and boundaries created on religious freedom have caused many causes. The attributes and racial divide between White and Native settlers have enhanced complex views.
Question 3: The three historical lenses to look at the events such as the religious history lens, political history lens, and social history lens (Santiago & Dozono, 2022, p.18).
Question 4: a. Tisquantum is taken as a convict who has been brought back as an enslaved person. He has learned English and has returned to his homeland as an intermediary and interpreter to create an alliance.
The Wampanoag has been dangerously devastated by a disease like the Patuxet has threatened tribal people to form an alliance and help to save individuals.
Question 5: The short-term consequence is the Wampaong, who are saved against the tribals by the alliance.
The long-term consequence is based on English settlers who have come under the power of balanced features in favor of white settlers. During the Pequot War in 1630, most of the white settlers stayed with many Native Americans and were captured, enslaved, and killed (Santiago & Dozono, 2022, p.22).
Question 6: My understanding of historical event have changed drastically. I am unaware of this fact because of the background of the cause. Timothy Mc Veigh enacted his punishment so that there might be individuals who are against the Federal government. The fallacy is that all the actions are planned with the correct value of political figure Mc Veigh, who thinks that buildings might be attacked. He cared no for innocent children, and some have died (Santiago & Dozono, 2022, p.11).
Question 7: The political and historical lens has signed a Treaty of New Echota for a small faction of the Cherokee.
The social, and historical lens has created interactions between different Cherokee tribes so that the people there would be differences created between Cherokees and white settlers.
The military-historical lens has changed in using the Treaty of New Echota to relocate forcefully the Cherokees.
Question 8: I agree with the thesis statement because The Treaty of New Echota and the National Party is correct in opposing it. The treaty was considered a fraud by the Cherokees under the National Council. The US Senate is still ratified because a single change is not even part of this group, where a small amount has signed the treaty. John Ross canceled tribal elections, so the Cherokee Council threatened to impeach Major and John Ridge. The National Part has opposed some actions that have oriented with supported opposition of the Cherokees. Therefore, the National Party has opposed some sections that might change the relocation of the Cherokee to change the lenses.
