History professor Laurel Clark Shire looks at government policies towards Native Americans living in the southeastern United States from the late 1700s until the mid-1800s. She examines the factors that led to the removal of Indian tribes west to territories in what is today Oklahoma, and talks about how some tribes attempted to avoid removal by changing their culture to be more like that of white settlers. She also looks at armed resistance to removal by the Seminoles in Florida. This class took place at the University of Hartford in West Hartford, Connecticut.
