Grant's "peace policy" toward Native Americans relied most heavily on
a. introducing them to Christianity.
b. teaching them to be farmers.
c. herding them onto reservations.
d. providing government assistance for their living needs.
e. leaving them to their own devices.
Tip: The textbook does not list the term peace policy in the index with the 4th edition paperback. Look up Grant. In the entries for Grant, you will see Native Americans and. Use the pages listed there.
Background from U.S. History I:
· Native American tribes were tribal and communal. They owned land as a tribe, not individuals. See Chapter 1, heading “The Struggle for Jamestown.” Look for the content around the “legal concept of vacuum domicilium” for how differently the English and the Native Americans interpreted ownership and community.
· For how much of the Native American lands were lost before the Civil War, see Chapter 9 and Map 9.2 Lands Ceded by Native Americans. It shows the lands lost in the North and in the South (including the Cherokees) and how they are being forced to the West.
· For the reservations (areas set aside for tribes forced to move to the Great Plains) in 1875 and by 1900, see the map in your course for Part I for U.S. History I and for Part A for U.S. History II.
The Dawes Act of 1887
a. attempted to divide reservations into single farms.
b. planned to use farm ownership to "civilize" the Native Americans.
c. made more land available to whites.
d. all of the above.
Tip: The Dawes Act is also called the Dawes Severalty Act. The word severalty means to own as an individual, not at tribe. The land (160 acres, the number of acres used with the Homestead Act) went—theoretically—to individual Indians, not the tribe.
