    Native American Women in the Late 19th Century

    Native American women during the late 19th century endured a lot. They were removed from their homes, had their lives interrupted to make way for new settlers, economic ambitions and what Americans referred to as their “superior civilization” (DuBois & Dumenil, 2009). In addition to being forced to live on reservations, where they could no longer live as they chose as they had little or no control over what they ate or what they did, some were going to war to fight for their families, land and freedoms. The male warriors, women and children were constantly on the move to avoid pursuing troops (DuBois & Dumenil, 2009).
