12 Manifest Destiny God-given right to move West!
Purpose: Expand Westward toward the (1) __________________ (2) __________________ Goals to spread: ____________________ MORE LAND!


14 Native American Opinion / European ideology / Justification of Manifest Destiny
I think that one of the things that happens in the process of conquest, the people of military power who conquer another people, is that, it stimulates a certain pattern of thought. It’s a very ethnocentric, European ideology, the ideology of the ideal. The Americans are now thinking that they are at the top of, at the forefront of the project of civilization. And the only thing that counts as legitimate are those things that contribute to its idea of progress. And of course Indians are not perceived to be civilized, or part of the story of progress. They were an obstacle, you had to clear them away, then you had progress. So what they called the movement west was, Manifest Destiny. Now there was a utopian ideology if ever there was one. What’s underlying that is the idea that God, or some power had designated this group of people to sweep across the continent. It’s their destiny to do this, and anything that stands in their way, like the idea that other people already own this land, have their own societies, in order to do it, you have to commit crimes against humanity. In other words, you feel you are justified in killing in order to carry out what must be what God, or whatever you want to call it, has ordained. John Mohawk, Ph. D. Professor of American Studies SUNY Buffalo
