Indian Wars, the
the wars in the US between white Europeans and Native Americans in the 18th and 19th centuries. The fighting increased after 1830, when the government began to force Native American tribes to leave their land and live on reservations (=special areas of land kept separate for Native Americans). By 1880, most of the fighting had ended.
