    Indians were already in control of most of the New World’s lands when the Europeans arrived. To the Europeans, the Natives were unwanted irritation. Violence between the Englishmen and Indians quickly broke out after the English arrive at Chesapeake Bay. Lord De La Warr planned to start a vicious campaign against the Indians with the idea of destroying them completely and taking them off the map. One of the worst attacks was Bacon’s Rebellion. Nathaniel Bacon led a group of yeomen to attack several Indian villages in response to Governor Berkeley’s containment policy. This rebellion was stopped when an English Governor hung some of Bacon’s men to prove a point (doc b). Indentured…

    War between the Indians and the Colonists was unavoidable from the very moment the Pilgrims first set foot on what was to eventually become Massachusetts in 1620. As more and more settlers began arriving over the years, tension between the two began to steadily rise. The settler 's insatiable hunger for land and their increasing mistreatment of the Indians began to break down an already somewhat fragile alliance between the two. The Indians were quickly losing land and their way of life as well to these new settlers and some of them believed the only way to stop this was to go on the offensive and push back them back. The result of this was a short fought war known as King Philip 's War. Though it only lasted a little over a year, it was an exceptionally brutal war that took a huge toll life wise and had a lasting impact on both the English and the Indians for many years to come.…

    The Native American tribes in the Western frontier played a major role in the Virginia revolutionary movement. The elite Virginian gentry?s desire for Western Native American lands rapidly grew in the mid-eighteenth century. The wealthy Virginians made many attempts to attain these lands and the Native Americans resisted hard to defend what their land. Furthermore, the British government was more accommodating to the Natives than the Virginians wished. Parliament was careful not to incense native tribes for fear of a costly war or rebellion. A British official exclaimed that Indian rebellions (specifically Pontiac?s Rebellion) were ?expensive and destructive to his Majesty?s Subjects.? For example, in October 1768, the British imposed the Treaty of Hard Labor, which resulted in the Cherokee Indians retaining land that Virginian Thomas Jefferson had claimed. Two more major British treaties enraged the Virginia land speculators. The treaty of Easton in 1758 decreed all lands west of the Appalachian Mountains to the Indians. This treaty caused problems for many speculators and farming companies. However, the major calamity to the Virginian gentry was the Proclamation of 1763. Although the proclamation did little to stop settlers from…

Far, far away in what is now New Mexico, the Pueblo Revolt was an uprising of Pueblo Indians against the Spanish settlers in the colony of Santa Fe de Nuevo México in 1680.
