- KurzbeschreibungAccording to the saying, history is written by the<br>winners. This is also the case of American history.<br>The history of America was written in the spirit that everything can be explained ; the American point of<br>view as justifying every deed and action is not only<br>a few decades old, it goes back to the time of the<br>Puritans.<br>By the advent of the late 18th and early 19th<br>century, the early images and perceptions of the<br>Spanish, French, and English about the Native<br>Americans affected every aspect of life, science, and<br>society. The concepts became regarded as facts, and<br>the whole picture of the Natives as Indians turned<br>into central themes in understanding the indigenous<br>people of North America.<br>With the idea of Herbert Spencer further developed<br>by Charles Darwin of what was to become known as<br>Social Darwinism, the Native Americans were labeled<br>as unfit, and their downfall was explained as a<br>result of their unwillingness to adapt to the new ways. <br>Self-determination was the main goal to be achieved<br>by the revitalized Natives. In a way the national<br>historic memory was reshaped, and the Natives brought<br>into foreground the real, present day identity of the<br>Native Americans.
