The Indians during this time were forced to accept the Europeans establishing new territories, even if they did not belong to them. As the Indian populations continued to decrease, some Indians intermarried with the Europeans and even the Africans to try and boost the population once again.

It depicts the leader of a Native American tribe assimilating himself and is people in the American settlers’ culture. A majority of settlers thought the Natives were living like savages, even though that’s how they lived in their culture. Their culture was seen as primitive, compared to the culture of the settlers.

Just as her mother had predicted, she discovered that she rather disliked the ways of the Quakers who had taken her from her home. The purpose of her source was to inform all of her readers, the truth about what happened to Native Americans who tried to assimilate to the eastern and western ways. Her original audience was fellow Native Americans and their children. She sought to provide Native American children with a three-dimensional view of the Quaker institutions so that the children could make a fully informed decision before leaving their homes in search of a promise full of hollow tales of awe.
