Indian Wars is the name used in the United States to describe a series of conflicts between White settlers or the federal government and the native peoples of North America. (This is a Master Project. We need help with expanding and fleshing out this project!)

The wars were the result of the arrival of European colonizers who continuously expanded their territory pushing the indigenous populations westwards. The wars were spurred by ideologies such as Manifest Destiny, that held that Anglo-Saxon Europeans were destined to expand from coast to coast on the American continent, and which resulted in the policy of Indian removal by which Indigenous peoples were removed from the areas where Europeans were settling forcefully or by means of voluntary exchange of territory through treaties.

Notes

This is the "master" or "umbrella" project for a series of conflicts, from 1637's Pequot War through the Wounded Knee massacre and "closing" of the American frontier in 1890.
