Best Answer

Whites wanted the sacred land that belonged to the Native Americans for railroads and for establishing cities. However the Native Americans attempted to fight for their land but they had little power and were forced to move westward. The whites killed off millions of buffalo in their building of railroads. This caused a large problem to the Native Americans since they relied on buffalo as a major food source.
