    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Crum made everything simple to understand. He himself was very knowledgable and even did the assignments himself. He would post to the discussions that were due every week. He was big on interaction.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite topic during this course was over the Wounded Knee Massacre. In an effort to control the Indians, the Government began isolating children from their families and forcing them to attend off-reservation boarding schools where they would live until after adolescence. These children would attend Christian services, speak English, and profess American values. In 1884, the Bureau of Indian Affairs framed a criminal code that would forbid any tribal religious practices. To enforce this ban, the United States government would disrupt religious ceremonies and withhold rations and clothing that the Indians were dependent on. They would also arrest Indian leaders. One of these religious movements were known as the Ghost Dance. The Sioux believed that they had been confined to reservations because they believed they had angered their gods for abandoning their customs. In an effort to get back in favor of their gods, they would perform the Ghost Dance. They thought that by doing this that their buffalo would soon return. That their relatives would be resurrected. They also believed that white men would be cast away. Americans believed that the Indians performing the Ghost Dance were crazy and wild. They panicked. That somehow it was a type of resistance from Americans. So in 1890, the army's 7th Calvary rounded up a tribe of Sioux men, women, and children at Wounded Knee in South Dakota. The Sioux surrendered their weapons to the army. The 7th Calvary then began searching their tents for more weapons. During this time a single shot was fired. Nobody knew who it came from and the army started openly firing on the Sioux. After most of the Sioux were killed the army stated that the ones left alive would be saved. When they appeared from their hiding spots soldiers surrounded them and killed them as well. The 7th Calvary slaughtered at least 200 Sioux men, women, and children in the efforts to suppress the Ghost Dance religion. This became known as the Wounded Knee Massacre.
