Dependencies and governments

In 1873 the American government killed 1.5 Million buffalo in that one year alone to starve the native Americans so they would be come more dependent on the American government to survive — @AmericanIndian8

It was done here in Canada as well. Not by killing buffalo, but by killing dogs, the Native People up north used to hunt with. Making them dependent on the Government for food and shelter. — @bramhabs98

I don’t know to which extent it’s true but I never thought about it this way.
