Non-Christians don't have the right to own any landPop Urban II states that non-christians don't have the right to own any land. This meant that European explorers now were able to travel around the world and colonize any land that wasn't christian.
- Which with time resulted in the discovery and colonization of the North American continent.

Native American SlaughterU.S troops felt threatened by Sioux (Native American tribe). They feared that the Sioux were going to destroy white men, and the troops were sent to Pine Ridge in South Dakota.

- A horrible event that shows us just how poorly the relationship between white and Native Americans were.
The Society of Native AmericansThe Society of Native Americans was founded, an organization who was dedicated to evolve and expand the education opportunities for the Native Americans.
They even spoke up for Native Americans in American politics.
- The organization not only spoke up for the Native American rights, but also encouraged the tribes to look beyond their heritage and try to assimilate to the common society.
