Farming on the middle border More land came into cultivation in the 30 years after the Civil War than in the previous 250 years of American History. Farming was difficult and much of the burden fell on women. Bonanza farms: John Wesley Powell warned that much of the regions arid land required large scale irrigation projects and cooperative, communal farming. Small farmers became more connected to national and international markets. As crop production increased prices fell and small farmers suffered The future of western farming was pushed toward giant agricultural enterprises, seen in CA. Cowboys became a symbol of a life of freedom on the open range. The incorporation of the West into the national economy meant doom for the Plains Indians. As settlers encroached on their land, bloody conflicts between the army and the Native Americans began in the 1850s and continued until 1890s. The Union army launched a campaign against the Navajos in the Southwest. Once numbering 30 million in 1800 the buffalo were already extinct due to hunting by 1890. The Nez Perce were chased over 1,700 miles before surrendering in Chief Joseph spoke of freedom before a distinguished audience in Defending their land, Sioux and Chyenne warriors attacked General Custer at Little Bighorn. These events, however, only delayed the onward march of white soldiers, settlers, and prospectors. In 1877 Congress eliminated a treaty system that dated back to the revolutionary era. Forced assimilation, trying to make Native Americans act white like so-called civilized Europeans. The crucial step in attacking tribalism came in 1887 when the Dawes Act was passed. The policy was a disaster for the Indians. Many laws only offered citizenship to Native Americans if they gave up tribal affiliations and assimilated, but the vast majority did not want to give up their identity and culture. Elk v. Wilkins (1884) made it so that the 14 th and 15 th did not apply to Native Americans. Some Native Americans sought solace in the Ghost Dance, a religious revitalization campaign reminiscent of the pan-Indian movements led by earlier prophets like Tenskwatawa. On Dec. 29, 1890, soldiers opened fire on ghost dancers encamped on Wounded Knee Creek in South Dakota, killing 200 Native Americans, mostly women and children.
