In boiling down the history of the United States of America's history to just a few words they would be, genocide, lies and failure. The settlers of the new world and the government of the United States used genocide as a start to "settle" the country. Then the government lied to the Indigenous People, over and over again. The government have failed to live up to any treaty ever signed. When physical genocide didn't work they turned to psychological genocide and tried to turn then into white people. Even today the government does not treat the indigenous people well.
