Why did the US Termination of Indians Policy of 1953-1964 under Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy,


and Johnson fail? In addition, why was the Indian Removal Act of 1830 under President Andrew Jackson not repealed until 1980 under President Jimmy Carter? (Public domain photo by Richard Throssel [1882 - 1933] of the Cree Nation)

    In Ohio we didn't hear much about Govt. trying to eliminate Native Amer. Nations, but I'm glad that failed and happy you have many cultures in one family for rich heritage. I'm shocked JFK didn't end the policy, but maybe he was just killed too soon.
