What was the main goal of Indian boarding schools?
The main goal was to force the Indian children to become more like white children.
How soon did women in Washington get the right to vote permanently?
They were granted suffrage after four other Western States, but before the rest of the United States as a whole.
What meaning is there in this: 60,000 people?
That was the amount the Washington population had to be over in order to become a state.
True or false: Both the Washington and U.S. Constitutions mentioned that people have a right to privacy.
False. The Washington Constitution mentions privacy, but the U.S Constitution doesn’t.
“We received orders to give three volleys then charge— we did so. That act would hit anyone, old as well as young, but what any individual soldier did while in the camp, he did so as a brute, and not because he had any orders to commit such acts.“
Quote 1- Corporal Charles N. Loynes, 7th Infantry
“What made Joseph so hostile was the killing of some of their women and children by accident as we were told not to shoot the squaws and I can honestly say it was not done on purpose.”
Quote 2- Private Homer Coon, 7th Infantry
“We came back... to find part of our village in ruins. This teepee here was standing and silent. Inside we found... two women lying in their blankets dead. Both had been shot. Some soldiers acted with crazy minds.“
Quote 3- Yellow Wolf, Nez Perce Warrior
“The Nez Perce never make war on women and children; we could have killed a great many women and children while war lasted, but we would feel ashamed to do so cowardly an act.“
Quote 4- Chief Joseph, Nez Perce Chief
What do both the soldiers and the Indian men agree on?
1. Women and children died.
2. There was a battle that included shooting.
3. The deaths were a sad part of the war.
On what do the soldiers and Indian men disagree?
They disagree on whether the deaths were accidental or purposeful.
How do you think the women were killed?
I think they were shot by the soldiers on purpose because Yellow Wolf said that the two women were lying in their blankets. Both were shot. Because they were lying in their blankets, it appears that they were not trying to escape or attack. The soldiers killed them for no reason.
