The Indian Removal Act. As people began to move west they wanted the Native American lands, so the act made it official that the tribes were to be removed. From the very moment of the first colony the European settlers did their best to kill, remove, or displace the Native tribes from their lands. The government made treaties they broke and they forcibly removed people to reservations. The Union army would go into a sleeping village early in the morning and kill men, women, and children. The government policy was a " good Indian was a dead one" and they would do anything to accomplish this task. Read Black Elk Speaks or Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee for further understanding of the genocide that was committed.

Did settlers and Native Americans often fight?

ANSWERTrick question actually, usually the Native Americans didn't attack but the settlers used force to drive them out.ANSWERThere have been many times that the settlers fought with Native Americans. Most often, it was because the settlers used force to drive the Native Americans out of their land, or the Native Americans fought to get land back that the settlers had wrongfully taken. Sometimes, the native people attacked the colonists or pioneers because the settlers would violate treaties they had made with the natives.
