The 1847-1859 War

Not long after the whites invented the revolver in the mid 1830s, they intensified their westward invasion. The revolver is why the whites were able to quickly expand to the Pacific. Before the whites settled the central part of North America, however, they first commenced to invade the California, Oregon, and Washington region. In the central part of North America, an Anishinabe population existed which was much larger than the Anishinabe population along the west coast. In the late 18th century, the whites invaded the California region which had a large Indian population, and a smaller Asian (mainly Chinese along with some Japanese) population which had lived in the California, Oregon, and Washington region, since probably the 13th century. They were brought to North America by Anishinabe people who the whites refer to as the Mongols.

The whites refused to deal with the Asians on a nation to nation level. Instead, the whites looked upon the Asians who lived along the west coast of North America, as an obstruction to the expansion of the white race. The whites mistreated the Asians but not as harshly as they mistreated their Native American brethren. The whites built many of their settlements around the so called Chinatowns which existed in North America long before 1492. After the whites defeated Anishinabe controlled Mexico in the 1846-1848 Mexican-American War, they commenced to settle in California. American leaders knew that gold and other precious metals, if discovered, would hasten the white colonization of California. Gold was searched for and discovered in California, in the late 1840s, and immediately after, a massive white invasion to California commenced. After the whites invaded California, they knew they could easily defeat the Anishinabe people of California and other California Indians, who did have the revolver. American leaders made it clear to their white citizens, that their government would supply them with as many revolvers and ammunition as they requested so they could kill as many California Indians as they could.

Historians refer to the tragic event as the California Indian Genocide. White settlers daily went out to hunt down the native Indians of California to kill them. Anglo historians claim the Spanish whites decimated the Indian population of California but that is wrong. It was the Anglo white Americans who decimated the Indian population of California. They used the revolver and plague warfare to decimate the huge Indian population of California, which may have been higher than 1,000,000 in the 1840s. By 1900, only 16,000 Indians of California were clinging on to their tribal identities. Most California Indians were forced to adopt a Mexican identity. Today, they make up one third of the population of California. They are so stupid they actually believe they came from Mexico. However, it is not their fault. The whites are to blame. Wars erupted in central and northern California (especially northern California which obviously had a larger Anishinabe population than central California), Oregon, and Washington in the late 1840s, between the native Indians and the invading white Americans. However, the war was a lopsided war easily dominated by the better armed white invaders. These wars lasted until the late 1870s.

From the California, Oregon, and Washington region, the wars spread to the west in the 1850s. These wars including the wars in California, Oregon, and Washington, include the 1848-1855 Cayuse War in Oregon and Washington; the 1850-1853 Yuma War in Arizona and California; the 1853 Walker War in Utah; the 1855-1856 Rogue River War in Oregon; the 1855-1858 Yakima War in Oregon and Washington; the 1855-1856 Puget Sound War in Washington; the 1856 Tintic War in Utah; the 1858 Spokane-Coeur d'Alene-Paloos War in Idaho and Washington; the 1858-1859 Mojave War in Arizona; and the Apache War of the 1850s in Arizona and New Mexico. However, all these wars were the same conflict. The largest concentration of Anishinabe people at the time, in the west of North America, was in central and northern California, Oregon, and Washington. It was in the Oregon and Washington region, where the fighting lasted the longest on the west coast. Indians endurred the most casualties in this conflict. Below is a list of the battles in this long war. It does not include the incredible number of white raids against the Indians of California. The whites possibly killed 100,000s of the California Indians, between 1846-1872.
