Hebron, Indiana is a city with a rich history and culture. It was first settled by Judge Jesse Johnson in the early 1800s and was granted “city” status in 1890. The city is known for its connection to the Great Kankakee Swamp, which increased traffic and population in the area. The median age of the city is 33.6 years, with a gender composition of 48.3% male and 51.7% female.
Hebron was originally an open meadow interspersed with small forests of trees, located near the town of Hauakiki in Potawatomi, which was locally known as Indian Town. In 1849, 1852, 1855 and 1864, lots were distributed west and south of The Corners. The Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis Railroad was built in 1863 to open the city to growth, and it had a major impact on the area after the end of the American Civil War.
Before Europeans arrived in North America, the continent was colonized by Native American tribes such as Sioux, Cherokee and Iroquois. These tribes cultivated their traditions and heritage without interference for centuries. Archaeologists have discovered very advanced structures and public works that were built by these tribes. While there were some skirmishes between Native Americans and Europeans, there were also periods of peace where they traded goods and services.
However, as more Europeans arrived in North America, they began to pressure Native Americans to move out of their territories so they could expand westward. This led to government policies that forced Native Americans to give up their land in exchange for cash payments or bartering. In the second half of the 19th century, almost all Native American tribes lived west of the Mississippi River. In 1851, the United States organized a conference with several local Indian tribes and established the Fort Laramie Treaty.
This treaty allowed the government to build roads and fortresses in Native American territories in exchange for them not attacking settlers. Native American politics can be defined as the regulations and operations established by the United States to summarize the relationship between Native American tribes and the federal government.
