To put it bluntly Jackson felt that the only good Indian was a dead one. He built his reputation on killing native Americans and there were many who agreed with him. The US policy towards the Native Americans was one of discrimination and it was apartheid at it's very worse. The Indian Removable Act moved native people off of ancestral lands so settlers could take the land or the railroad go through. Moving people to reservations meant that they were unable hunt, and unable to live within reasonable means. It was death and Jackson was intolerant in his attitude to Native Americans.
