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.

The First People deserve more than what they got and what they get today. Their history is important and vital to this nation and their nation, moreso. Their customs, their way of living and how they did things and what they valued was terrific. I learned a lot. It's all good. Thank you for letting vent. Be safe and smart. God Bless...

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

I guess not being called Native American makes alot of sense considering they are not the ones who named this country America. So call these native people whatever term they would perfer it’s there right as a people... like me I am always marking I am caucasin but I am also Arabic and I have been thinking of marking both.

I've often read that horses were unknown in the Americas before the Europeans came. However, many of the pictures of indigenous people show them riding or using horses - presumably a skill which they could have acquired only after the Europeans came. I'd like to find out more about the arrival of horses and how the indigenous people became such skilled horsemen (and women!). More info, please.

Who were the first Americans? How far back in history or time do we have to go back in time do we have to go to find the original inhabitants of any land?
