need help with paraphrasing.
“ The Wasichus came, and they have made little islands for us and other little islands for the four-leggeds, and always these islands are becoming smaller, for around them surges the gnawing flood of the Wasichu; and it is dirty with lies and greed.”
In “Black Elk Speaks”, the Whites came take away most of the Native American’s land for gold rush. The Native American had few lands left.
When the Whites came, they took away most of the Native American's land for gold rush. the Native American had few lands left and suffered starving.
If you mean that the second post is a paraphrase of the first, it's close. I don't see the specific reference to a gold rush in the first, though.
In addition, remember to put a capital letter at the beginning of a sentence.
