Native American Culture Term Paper

… In 1968 the first tribal college opened on the Navajo reservation and by 1995, there were twenty-nine such college (Natives Pp). There are numerous radio stations, as well a newspapers and periodicals (Natives Pp).

Native Americans: Separate and Unequal Term Paper

… 3). In a manner that mirrors the attitude of the Quechans, the Cherokee also sought federal protection, but wanted to maintain their sovereignty. In other words, Native Americans were trying to negotiate a place within the expanding European society in North America, but without sacrificing their values, beliefs, and sovereignty. The colonial powers, whether British, Spanish, French, or U.S., responded sometimes brutally by segregating them physically and culturally.

An essential component of the colonial response was to establish boarding schools through the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) (Oliver, 1996, p. 10-13). The goal was to indoctrinate Native American children in Christian values, the English language, property ownership, and the American work ethic, while stripping them of their native culture and language. Twenty-five boarding schools were…. [read more]

US Treaty With Navajo Native Americans Thesis

… U.S. Treaty with Navajo Native Americans

The Treaty Between the United States and the Navajo Tribe of Indians

Although it is fair to say that most of the treaties created between the United States government and the former rulers of the Americas, the native tribes, were inequitable and favored the interests of the American government rather than the native populace, it would be unfair to say that all of them were equally inequitable. For example, the 1863 Treaty Between the United States and the Navajo Tribe of Indians showed more consideration for the native tribes on reservations, giving them land and the watchful oversight of a commissioner to protect the members of the tribe against injustices. This is in profound contrast to the earlier 1863…. [read more]

Language in the United States Term Paper

… NRC Language in the United States

Language diversity is a hot-button issue in today's modern political climate. English-only proponents have a variety of reasons for suggesting that English become the single official language of the United States. Some of these reasons are legitimate, such as ensuring that all Americans have an unfettered ability to communicate with one another, while some of them seem to disproportionately impact brown-skinned immigrant groups, and should be examined for any underlying racist motivation. Regardless of the legitimacy of English-only policies, multi-lingualism is completely supported by American traditions. The United States does not have, and has never had an official language, but has always been a multicultural and multi-lingual country. The United States' official policies have either been hands-off with regard…. [read more]

Peace Keepers of the Northeast Research Proposal

… Peace Keepers of the Northeast: The Iroquois Indians

The Iroquois Indians were a large group of various indian tribes who resided along side the Genesee River, the Mohawk River, and the Lake Ontario regions in New York around 1600. Iroquois is a French word used to mean "a large family." It is not solely one tribe or group of Indians, yet it was a vast series of various tribes, all of who shared a similar culture and language. Five large Iroquois tribes joined together to form a confederacy which was called the League of Five Nations. The five tribes who formed this confederation were the Mohawk, the Oneida, the Cayuga, and the Seneca. Later the addition of the Tuscarora tribe made it the League of…. [read more]

America at War 1865-Present Essay

… The following year, the economy would collapse, and Hoover would show his impotency at dealing with domestic problems, and the man who had ran against the Wet-ticket candidate, would finally repeal the 18th Amendment in 1932, as the number of jobless reached into the tens of millions.

The economy would continue to dwell in the sewers despite FDR's Alphabet programs, designed to put Americans back to work with social and environmental jobs. However, the real jobs would be in manufacturing for the war machine -- and that would come with America's entry into World War II following the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor. Under Roosevelt, America became known as "the great arsenal of democracy" -- an insightful use of terminology (Jarecki, 2008, p. 37).

Environmental Justice Term Paper

… S. EPA "cannot lawfully issue a policy" extending Title VI civil rights law to pollution without congressional action. Under current law, continues the California letter, neither state nor federal agencies have the authority to "to deny permits based on the racial makeup of the area surrounding the facility." Furthermore, the "California Supreme Court has determined that hazardous waste laws do not preempt local land use authority." (Payne, 1998)

California EPA concludes that, without congressional action, the administration's unilateral re-interpretation of Title VI law would give the EPA "unfettered discretion to apply statistical data in any way it chooses, create risk assessments without peer reviewed standards, determine that all discharges create measurable disparate impacts by their very existence and treat people differently based on racial or….

General William Sherman Research Proposal

… ¶ … Sherman played an instrumental role in the Civil War and the Indian Wars. During the Civil War Sherman was relentless in his desire to lead the Northern troops to victory. Sherman's strategy involved both traditional and psychological warfare. Sherman wanted to bring the confederate Army into complete submission. To this end, Sherman ordered his men to pillage farms and to take enough provisions for ten days. To fulfil Sherman's orders 60,000 union soldiers moved from farm to farm and took whatever provisions that they deemed necessary. The 1840's saw a rise in negative attitudes towards colonists by Native Americans and vice versa. Once the Civil war was completed General Sherman was made the commander of the Missouri district. As commander in this region…. [read more]

Ecofeminism: In Search of Universal Remedies Thesis

… Ecofeminism: In Search of Universal Remedies for Women & Nature

"Women just see that there can be no liberation for them and no solution to the ecological crisis within a society whose fundamental model of relationship continues to be one of domination. [Women] must unite the demands of [their] movement with those of the ecological movement to envision a radical reshaping of the basic socio-economic relations and the underlying values of this society…"

(Mellor, 1997, p. 297).

Ecofeminism cannot be seen as a single theory or strategy espoused by any specific organization or movement. Ecofeminism can in fact be viewed as a choir with many voices contributing a diversity of pitch, range, sharps and flats and indeed harmony in some cases as well. This paper…. [read more]
