As the white settler populations grew, Natives were constantly under pressure to retreat away from their native lands. White settlers on the Plains wanted to use the land for larger and larger farms. This caused the Natives to be pushed away. Violence would erupt and US soldiers were there to help the settlers. Soon the Natives were sent to reservations.
