why did the us deem the native amaricans not competant to maintain their life and land?
to this day the natives can't do anything on the reservations without telling the goverment first because of a law that was used to deem them not competatnt.
but how did that even work they where competent enought to survive for so long before amarica was made so what qualification for being incompatent did they use and why is it still in use today?
tl:dr a law i learned about today that was put inplace before 1900 is still used today against native amaricans that then labled the tribes incompetent so it could stifle their ability to grow econimy
what qualified them as incompetent that made it usable and how did the law even work and for the love of celestia why is it still being followed today?

Search of Doctrine of Discovery to find out why Europeans paid so little mind to the Natives.

Why would any indian kid want to stay on a reservation, especially a girl. What they should investigate is the pressure that the indian hierarchy puts on the kids, in particular to not achieve so they will be stuck on the reservation. So, the entire system tends to be opposite to American society. You see it from your perspective.

"Manifest destiny". Canada justified it as well along those lines. Australians, too, but the natives there were quite different.

The history makes love to blame whitey on this but if you look at what bankers were funding the land takeaways, you will find many jews.. weird on how the history books don't write that and for sure jews aren't writing the history books.. right? lol
