'Dawes Act, Allotments and Shareholders -- Who Owns the Land?' by American Indian Genocide Museum
President Theodore Roosevelt said this concerning The Dawes Act of 1887, which was also known as the Indian Allotment Act, “(allotment) was a mighty pulverizing engine to break up the tribal mass." The Dawes Act gave a 160-acre allotment of land to each Indian head of the household and what remained of the reservations was sold to white settlers. By 1934, when the allotment policy ended, 60 percent of the Indian land base had been transferred to whites as “surplus." This included 27,000,000 acres in individual allotment sales.
The sentiments of Teddy Roosevelt rise up like a beast from the sea of land hunger throughout American history.
