1832-1848 War

Below are links to a list of battles fought in the 1832-1848 War. In late 1820's, whites made it clear to Anishinabe people of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa and southern Wisconsin, that they were not going to allow them the privilege of having large Reservations. Ojibway ogimak, who did not stray far from Seven Fires Prophesy, knew exactly what that meant. It meant that whites were not going to rule their nation as a conquered nation but they had intentions of stealing all their land and to exterminate them. It is clearly written in Seven Fires Prophesy that if Anishinabe People did not move away from whites, they would be destroyed by whites.

Following Seven Fires Prophesy, Ojibway ogimak in the Illinois, Indiana, Iowa and southern Wisconsin region, agreed to force their people to pack their belongings and commence an exodus towards the north and west. White historians claim that an Anishinabe ogima named Black Hawk, forced a group of Anishinabe People to return to their Illinois lands from Iowa. That is not the truth. What set off Black Hawk's War of 1832, was an Anishinabe Exodus towards the north and towards the west, from the Illinois, Indiana, Iowa and southern Wisconsin region. The Americans did not want that to occur. What American leaders wanted the Anishinabe People to do was move to white settlements and assimilate into white society. To put it more bluntly, the whites wanted to exterminate Native Americans in order to keep their land for eternity.

Decades before 1832's Anishinabe Exodus, large numbers of Anishinabe People had already commenced an exodus towards the west into the central portion of what is now the United States. They forced their way into the Kansas and Missouri region from the Iowa region. September 26, 1833's Treaty set aside a very large Reservation for them in Iowa, Minnesota and Missouri. It had a land area of over 5 million acres or 2,023,428.2 hectares. On June 5 and June 17, 1846, American leaders broke treaty and illegally eradicated the vast Ojibway Reservation. The 1846-1848 Mexican-American War followed. Another group of Anishinabe People who had forced their way down into what is now the southeastern United States in the 17th century, merged with Anishinabe People who fled into the Kansas and Missouri region from the Great Lakes region, particularly in what is now the Kansas-Oklahoma region.

In 1832, two groups of Anishinabe People commenced the exodus. One fled from the southern Wisconsin region towards the north. American leaders quickly learned about the exodus and armed Dakota Ojibway's (there was civil war among Ojibway People) of central Wisconsin and southern Minnesota, to attack the fleeing Anishinabek. White historians claim that Menominee People attacked Black Hawks subjects but Menominee's are also Anishinabe or Ojibway. It indicates civil war! The other group of Anishinabe People, commenced the exodus towards the west from the Illinois and Indiana region. They were pursued by scores of American Soldiers who were ordered to stop the exodus. A series of minor battles were fought in 1832 but most Anishinabe People successfully made it to the Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma region. Those Anishinabe People who fled towards the north to merge with Anishinabe People of northern Wisconsin, probably suffered most casualties in the short 1832 war. However, most reached northern Wisconsin.

Anishinabe People who reached the Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma region, merged with southern Anishinabe People. They would make their way into the Texas region which was brought under Anishinabe control much earlier, from what is now the Montana region. White historians claim that a group of Shoshone People (the Shoshone are really Anishinabe) broke away from the main concentration of Shoshone People in mid 17th century, from the Wyoming and Montana region, and forced their way into the Texas region which was controlled by whites in mid and late 19th century. White historians refer to them as Comanche. They refer to their land as Comoncheria. It does sound eerily like Mancheria. In 1830's, a war between Anishinabe People and whites for control of what is now Texas commenced. It would last for decades. Historians refer to 1830's war in Texas, as the Texas War for Independence. What led to whites dominating the Texas War, was invention of the revolver in mid 1830's. They possibly had invented the repeating rifle about same time they invented the revolver. Both weapons work the same way! The early phase in the Texas War continued on to early 1840's, when most of the fighting stopped.

I am not certain but i do suspect Anishinabe People of the Texas region, fought the so called 1861-1865 American Civil War. Anishinabe People did bring Mexico under their control when they brought Texas under their control. From 1830's to 1880's, Texas was an extremely dangerous place. Indian and black soldiers frequently launched raids against white Texan's. I do know soon after the so called 1861-1865 American Civil War commenced, numerous white settlements in central Texas, were evacuated by whites who fled eastward for (this is according to historians) at least 100 miles. Did Anishinabe People of the Texas and Mexico region, attempt one last giant effort to drive whites out of North America when the so called 1861-1865 American Civil War was fought? The following is a list of battles fought in the 1832-1848 War. What set off the war, as mentioned, was American leaders not honoring treaty agreements and illegally eradicating the vast Ojibway Reservation located mainly in Iowa.
