These ethnical groups are the real original inhabitants of what is Canada and the United States of North America and as such, should be respected and given the position they deserve.

It's long overdue that the "First People" of the Americas and Canada are finally getting recognized for the leaders in many areas BEFORE. the European settlers or any other race came along.

They have suffered tremendously through our attempts of genocide and assimilation.

No horses to ride before the Spanish brought them over. Also no guns for sharpshooters before Europeans brought them to America! Yes, their cultures and medicines are very important, but don’t confuse yesterday with today.

And they couldn’t even invent the wheel because of their tribal governments.

In general what is call the American continente, were in-habited by nacions which surpass by far the Europeans invaders. invasores destroyed precious civilizations. The Incas, the Aztecas comes to mind, but they are just the better known. By the standards of that time the American cultures surpass by far the European ones.

The more I learn about the ancient tribes of the Americas, the more I am awed. They were more advanced in many ways than a lot of other peoples in the world. I respect many of the tribes. Whites were, for the most part, unfair to many of the tribes. Many lies a broken promises caused the tribes many lives and the loss of most of their lands. Sickening.

Horses arrived with the Spaniards in the 16th century and probably acquired by the indigenous people of North America in any large numbers in the mid-late18th century.
