To the rest of the country he was a celebrity and to his people, he was a brave and noble leader. Whatever way viewed, his name and actions have left an eternal mark on America’s soil. His legend does not have an exact starting point, though scholars know he was born sometime in the late 1820’s....   [tags: Native American legends]

Apaches Research Project - 200 Apaches massacred, 100 more murdered, and 148 laying dead at Chihuahua Mexico, was something the Chiricahua Apache tribe, and many other tribes, lived through on a regular basis (Hoxie 1).  All of the previously mentioned, in addition to wars and being parted from their own land, were some of the consequences due to a country seeking to expand and conquer new territory, regardless of what or who they had to eliminate in order to accomplish this goal.  However, if Americans would have taken a more peaceful path in order to conquer the land of the Natives, if there would have been respect and honesty, and the many treaties made would have been honored, then these massacres would have been...   [tags: Native Americans Mexico Colonialism] 2308 words
