What was one provision of the dawes act of 1887? to stop american indians from buying land to stop american indians from resisting assimilation to divide and distribute land to american indians to divide and distribute land to white settlers


One provision of the Dawes Act of 1887 was that the President of the United States of America was given the authorization or power to survey the American Indian tribal lands and allot them to individual Indians at his discretion. It was also known by the name of General Allotment Act of 1887.
Hope this helps!! 

Section One authorizes the President to survey Native American tribal areas and divide the arable land into sections for the individual. It says that a Native American family may receive 160 acres (0.65 km2) if they are to farm, 80 acres (320,000 m2) if they are to raise cattle and 40 acres (160,000 m2) for any normal living purposes. 
Section Two states that each Native American will choose his or her own allotment and the family will choose for each minor child. The Native American agent will choose for orphan children. 
Section Three requires the U.S. American agent to certify each allotment and provide two copies of the certification to the Commissioner of Indian Affairs one to be kept in the Indian Office and the other to be transmitted to the United States Department of the Interior (Secretary of the Interior) for his action, and to be sent to the General Land Office. 
Section Four provides that Native Americans not residing on their reservation and Native Americans without reservations will receive the equal allotment. 
Section Five provides that a Secretary of the Interior will hold the allotments "in trust" for 25 years. At that time, the title will belong to the allotment holder or heirs. It also allows the Secretary to negotiate under existing treaties for the land not allotted to be purchased on "terms and conditions as shall be considered just and equitable between the United States and said tribe of Indians." 
Section Six states that upon completion of the land patent process, the allotment holder will become a United States citizen and "be entitled to all the rights, privileges, and immunities of such citizens". 
Section Seven addresses water rights on irrigated land. 
Section Eight exempts the Five Civilized Tribes and several others from the act. 
Section Nine appropriates the funds to carry out the act. 
Section Ten asserts the Power of Eminent Domain of the Congress over the allotments. 
Section Eleven contains a provision for the Southern Ute Native Americans that they could move from their present reservation in Southwestern Colorado to a new reservation if a majority of the adult male members wanted so. 

I think it's C) To divide and distribute land American Indians


It (the Dawes act of 1887) says that a Native American/American Indian family may receive an amount of acres of land depending on what do they do with the land itself.

The Dawes act was came into force on the 8th of February in the year 1887 and it was proposed by the congress and approved by the president of the United states to divide and allot land to the American Indians.

Each piece of land allotted was to be owned and regulated by individual instead of the whole tribe owning the land was removed by this act. These people owning the land were also promised future citizenship.

C - to divide and distribute land to American Indians


The Dawes Act of 1887 allowed the US to survey and divide up land for Native Americans. Any who accepted and lived apart from the trib would be granted US citizenship.

ANSWER: Native American Indians who accepted the individual allotments were allowed to become US citizens.

EXPLANATION: Dawes Act (also referred to as the General Allotment Act or the Dawes Severalty Act) was signed into the law in February 8, 1887, this law powered the US government to allocate lands in severalty to Indians on the various reservation.

Also, this law was enacted to emphasize the protection of the laws of the United States and her territories over the Indian populace, and for other reasons.

B) To stop American Indians from resisting assimilation

The Dawes Act of 1877 provided that Native Americans could have the opportunity to own land, if they agreed to comply with the rules of the American government and leave their heritage. This was seen throughout schools where Native American children were forced to cut off their hair, and accept a "white" man's name.
