Name your Custom Course and add an optional description or learning objective. Augustine.� The French were also in the picture, trying to form alliances with tribes, to fight the British.� The French generally allied with Algonquin tribes of the north, and they were able to ally with the less-warlike Choctaw in the south (the Choctaw-French alliance also split the tribe).� The Chickasaw were bitter enemies of the French, as the French tried dominating the Mississippi River for trade purposes, and tried exterminating the Chickasaw during the early 1700s.� The French never successfully penetrated the Cherokee region, largely because of Chickasaw resistance, which helped bring an end to France’s imperial designs in North America. [195] � When the Cherokee-Creek war ended in 1755, with the Cherokee victorious, the Cherokee then supported the British in the French and Indian Wars, at least for a time.� The Cherokee fought alongside the British during the wars, but there was continual uneasiness as the colonists always coveted Indian land.� The British built forts in Cherokee lands to protect the colonists, supposedly from the French and their allies, but the British always suspected the Cherokee of having French sympathies.� There were sporadic conflicts with the Cherokee and white settlers, although the British tried hard to maintain the peace, at least while the Cherokee were useful.� In 1758, a Cherokee war party was traveling with British forces through Virginia when the Cherokee lost their provisions while crossing a river.� Their “allies” abandoned them, leaving them to get home on their own.� Some angry braves then helped themselves to local provisions, such as Virginian horses.� Skirmishes broke out, and Virginians killed Cherokee warriors and sold their scalps for the Virginia bounty.� An Indian scalp brought 50 pounds in Virginia, the equivalent of a year’s income for a Virginian farm, and bounty hunters sold the scalps of “friendlies” as “hostiles” regularly.� Attacks and counterattacks occurred along the Cherokee frontier, and angry braves prevailed over chiefs who sought peace.� The British were beating the French by that time, had less use for their native “allies,” and a war broke out between the Cherokee and British in 1759.� British soldiers, who had been drunkenly raping local natives, kidnapped a Cherokee peace delegation then murdered them when Cherokee braves attacked the fort where they were held and killed one of the rapists.� Those events inflamed matters.� The killing escalated, with the Cherokee laying siege to Fort Loudon, and Amherst sending a huge expedition to the region in 1760.� The Cherokee chiefs were dismayed that their English allies were making war against them.� The Cherokee made several attempts to gain native allies against the English, but were unable to.� After massacres on each side and an English expedition that destroyed many Cherokee villages, a “peace” was negotiated in 1761 in which the Cherokee ceded huge chunks of land along the Carolina frontier.� Thousands more Cherokee died in the war. [196] � Watching the British turn on their allies made a deep impression on natives along the northern frontiers and helped lead to Pontiac's "rebellion.”� The British inflicted genocide on the Abenaki people at the same time, which made their intentions clear.� Even so, the Cherokee became British allies again, even as greedy colonists ignored the Royal Proclamation .� Daniel Boone’s penetration of Cherokee hunting grounds led the Cherokee elders to give in to the inevitable, “selling” the lands in Kentucky and Tennessee to the speculators in 1775.� The Cherokee chief Attakullakulla, who was the “emperor” that visited King George II in 1730, and who was raised in the Cherokee village that Tennessee is named after, acquiesced to the inevitable.� He saw the teeming hordes of England and the writing on the wall.� His son, however, did not.� A young warrior who survived smallpox epidemics, with his skin heavily scarred, he defied the treaty and made the following prophetic speech before leaving. “Where now are our grandfathers, the Delawares?� We had hoped that the white men would not be willing to travel beyond the mountains.� Now that hope is gone.� They have passed the mountains, and have settled upon Cherokee land.� They wished to have that usurpation sanctioned by treaty.� When that land is gained, the same encroaching spirit will lead them upon other land of the Cherokees.� New cessions will be asked.� Finally the whole country, which the Cherokees and their fathers have so long occupied, will be demanded, and the remnant of Ani-Yunwiya, “The Real People,” once so great and formidable, will be compelled to seek refuge in some distant wilderness.� There they will be permitted to stay only a short while, until they again behold the advancing banners of the same greedy host.� Not being able to point out any further retreat for the miserable Cherokees, the extinction of the whole race will be proclaimed.� Should we not therefore run all risks, and incur all consequences, rather than submit to further laceration of our country?� Such treaties may be all right for men who are too old to hunt or fight.� As for me, I have my young warriors about me.� We will have our lands.” [197] Attakullakulla’s son waged a guerilla war against the white invaders, in today’s Tennessee, for the next generation.� When the American Revolution began, the Iroquois Confederacy and other hostile tribes such as the Shawnee saw where events were headed.� If the colonists succeeded in breaking away from their mother country, the Indians would be more certainly doomed.� A dele gation was sent to the Cherokee in 1776 as part of an effort to unite all tribes from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico against the colonists.� By that time, the British colonies had taken on characteristics that could be discerned during the next century, which can be easily seen in the USA today.� From the earliest days of the Spanish invasions, the losers of European society came to the New World.� Europe’s upper classes rarely made trips to the New World or other imperial lands, unless they were royal representatives.� European sovereigns did not go abroad to survey their realms.� Lower class invaders turned themselves into local elites, and Europe’s rulers continually tried undermining colonial aspirations, and made grand pronouncements in Europe about respecting native lives.� The colonists mostly ignored or laughed at the proclamations and laws, which was particularly evident in the Spanish and English colonial experience.� English subjects even sold themselves into slavery, called indentured servitude, to gain passage to the New World.

The French interpreted this as a virtual declaration of war. The Council reasserted the supremacy of clerics over the laity. Some clergy and monarchs resented the tithes (a proportion of the sum collected by the church) that they paid to the central Catholic Church in Italy. The resolution to this occurred in 1494 at the Treaty of Tordesillas, creating, after long and tense diplomatic negotiations between the Kingdoms of Spain and Portugal, a dividing line 370 leagues west of the Cape Verde Islands.
