History 101 Losing the Constitution on the Trail To most people in America in 1830 the Indians and their tribes were nothing They were lower in stature than the black slaves on farms and in houses But to some they were regarded as human beings people just like any other People with rights Rights given to them by their individual tribes and by the country in which they lived worked and died With the assumption that the American Indians were citizens of The United States in 1830 and after this essay will prove that they were not only citizens of this country but that their constitutional rights from the Bill of Rights were also violated With first for the sake of argument for the sake of this essay we are assuming that the Indians were American citizens And second that in 1817 before he was president Adams told then president Monroe the Indians are subjects of the United States inhabiting its territory and acknowledging its sovereignty then is it not absurd for the sovereign to negotiate by treaty with the subject In this statement Adams states that he thinks that the Indians are subjects of the United States therefore making them citizens of the United States by progression from his statement So if the Indians were citizens of the United States a country formed fifty years earlier on the premise that all men are created equal and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights among these the right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness Then which if any of their unalienable rights from the Bill of Rights were violated by the actions of the government from the time of 1830 to 1840 primarily during the time leading up to and including the Trail of Tears When looking at the Bill of Rights we find that only two really apply to this time period
