Ellis focuses more intensively on the plight of the slaves than that of the Indians, but he does point out that Washington addressed their situation with the suggestion that they abandon their hunter-gatherer way of life and assimilate themselves into the general population as farmers [p. 159]. Was this a viable solution, or merely a pragmatic one? What other solutions might have been offered at the time?


Please re-post, including what YOU think the answers to these questions are. Then someone here will be happy to critique your work. Be sure to clarify who "Ellis" is.
