The Religious Factors between Native Americans and early Euro-American Settlers
History has been replete with instances of people moving or migrating by crossing their geographical boundaries and entering uncharted ‘terrain’. They move en masse into newer territories with varied intentions. Starting from the earliest main intention of occupying new lands as part of colonization to other intentions of capturing natural resources, tapping economic opportunities, and so on, people have been moving as part of migration. Looking at the annals of history, one may notice that people have always tended to migrate to unexplored territories. The indigenous peoples living in those territories follow a specific lifestyle, culture, rituals, and religion; thereby, they exhibit a particularly ethnic-cultural identity. So, when the migrating people with their own lifestyle, culture, and religion come in contact with those indigenous people, their interaction may lead to conflicts.
