The Homestead Act and the Plains Tribes with Nancy Gillis



Opening the Great Plains to settlement had far reaching impacts on the Native tribes, both positive and negative. This program explores the changes in political and economic structures, gender roles, spiritual ways, and other cultureal components both in the years prior to and following pivotal pieces of legislation in 1862- the Homestead Act, the Transcontinental Railroad Act, and the Morrill Land Grant Act.
