The Apache Indians of North America prospered for years throughout Kansas, New Mexico, and Arizona. They were a religious society who believed in a “giver of life”. As any complex society today, The Apache had many inter-tribal differences, although the tribe as a whole was able to see through these conflicts. Women and the extended family played an important role in the society and also in the lives of young children. Groups of different extended families, called bands, often lived together and functioned democratically. The Apache also evolved as the coming of the white man changed their lives. These Indians became adept at using horses and guns, both introduced to them by the coming settlers. As with most Indian tribes in North America the lives of the Apache were destroyed as their life-blood, the buffalo were slaughtered by the whites. The Apache were forced into surrender after years of struggle. One leader, Geronimo, was especially hard for the whites to capture. After years of evading white soldiers Geronimo was taken to Florida and treated as a prisoner of war. Government sponsored assimilation saw English forced upon the Apache robbing them of their culture. In 1934 The Indian Recognition Act helped establish the Indian culture as a recognized way of life. This act gave the Apache land, which the Apache in turn used for ranching. The destruction of the Apache culture was not recoverable and saw the Apache lose much of their language. The documentary on the Apache was very well done. The Indians of North America series, produced by Chelsea House, seems to be a very well thought-out series and the film on the Apache was no exception. The film moved quickly throughout the life and times of the Apache. This film, as no surprise, is a great educational tool. I felt that the life of Geronimo, the best-known Apache throughout history, could have been examined a little more carefully. The Cherokee The story of the

The Cherokee Indians
The American Indian History in the Eastern part of the country is always
associated with the Cherokee Indian nation. The Cherokee's were by far the
largest and most advanced of the tribes when Europeans first arrived and came in
contact with Native Americans. There are too many tribes to go over background
on every one of them, so I'm going to focus on the Cherokee's since many of
their ways and customs are so similar to all the other tribes in the East.

Apache, that very name struck unforgiving fear in the minds of settlers and tribes throughout the Great Plains and the southwest.

Apache culture is rich with tradition and conflict just like the land they once roamed.

President Andrew Jackson made a stupid decision. An Indian tribe called the Cherokee were forced to move from their land so that the U.S could expand. They had a choice to move to the Indian Territory or stay but live under the Georgia law. Although the Cherokee had some caused trouble, they shouldn’t be kicked out because they had Georgia first, fought on the U.S side during the war of 1812, and were treated poorly by the Americans.
First of all, the Cherokees were there first. They arrived in Georgia….
