Indian tribes stretched from coast to coast across North America. American Indians where small tribe People, or small societies and governed by a chief who served as the religious, moral, and political leader of each tribe. In the picture it shows the Spanish arrival in the Caribbean, Central, and South America in the 1500’s. Britain did not want to be left behind during age of Exploration, and Began Colonizing from South to north, and from East to west. The French where more interested in trading with natives and did not colonize much In North America. Christopher Columbus, although he was Italian, he was hired by Spain to Explore new worlds and expand Christianity.

I think its amazing to go back in time and learn about native people and their culture. It is amazing to know how they cultivated the American lands and fed their tribes. They were nomadic they needed to travel, hunt, fish, and find the way to always follow there food. They did not believe in private property. They are the roots of our innovation in technology, our future since they were the ones who taught the first Colonies how to survive in America. Their teachings funded  business for The French, Spain, and England in a race of colonization.

    It’s always nice to go back in time and learn about native people and their culture. We always find variety of interesting things in cultures.

    We (myself included) often make the mistake of grouping vastly different people by geography.and applying a fact that applies to some of those people, on all of them. really the best way would be to create smaller groups, The natives of the plains, the great lakes, the far north, Mesoamerica, and the Andes. these groups cover most and the most advanced natives. Because almost nothing that doesn’t apply to every human on earth can be applied to all of them. for example the Aztecs did have property and a form of currency. Most natives (like the people considered “Asian”) would rather not be put into groups with people that are vastly different from them.

    I appreciate how you credit Native Americans for living in America first and thriving off of the land before anyone else did. It is nice to see someone glorified besides the white settlers in early America. Also, I liked how you described each European country’s interaction with Native Americans and early colonization.
