    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.

    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.

    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.
