How did Native Americans cope with the end of their traditional way of life after settling on reservations?

Settling on reservations, some Native Americans tried to farm and adopt other non-Native Americans ways as whites wanted them to do.

Others fell into a deep depression or in desperation turned to alcohol. Still others, though, looked for comfort in new Native Americans religions.

The most popular of these revolved around the Ghost Dance.
