Not good, instead of being benefit and giving land to Native Americans it actually took land away. 17.4 million acres were taken away from Native Americans (1/7 of all reservation land). The Burke Act was passed nullifying the Dawes Act which nullified the 25 year provision and gave the secretary of the interior the power to allot lands.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
