The Hatians have not responded in a good way top the presence of U.S Marines in their country. The Hatians feel insulted to have the U.S military in their country. The Marines went into Haiti claiming to protect their gold reserves. On top of protecting the gold though they made their lives difficult. The Hatians created a resistance to the marines and fought them back.

  The Haitians felt that their indepence was taken away by the marines. So they fought guerrila style to get it back. As a result of this revolt, thousands of haitinas were killed, and villages were destroyed. With the Marines came crimes, killing, theft, and continuos insults. The Haitians wanted their country back to themselves and wanted the U.S out. They did not like the U.S there at all.

Yesterday in class we had the fishbowl activity. It was pretty interesting to find out that everyone was against the president in his decision with moving the indians out west. How because the senators liked the president he did not get impeached by blatantly going against the constitution. Today we worked on a reading about Red Cloud and found out that he was a good leader and helped the indians out. First by being a good military leader and trying to stand up for them politically.

I feel like I could live out on the frontier in a soddie. The smell of the sod did not bother me and I could easily live in a house that smelt like that. Also for the house I set it up with on a wall the stove and beds, then a table in the center of the house. Then for the picture I could sit still for the minute that it took to take the picture. That type of living style did not seem that bad to me.
