Artisticied Most of the land in North America was not inhabited by Natives, when Europeans first arrived. North America only had 2million Native people in 1492.

@Dilara And the next century or so saw most of those Natives die from disease before any major colonization began.

These are different people. Though I believe that the settlers' were right to begin with (they were civilized) that is a different story, the point is that no one alive today was individually involved in the battles between the natives and the settlers.

Does anyone even realize that the English Settlers got their ideas about a representative form of government from the Iroquois Confederacy, and the French were inter-meshed with the Algonquin tribes? Seeing as how Europeans not only stole their land but also borrowed their ideas about government, I'd love for Native Americans to heal this nation and restore the land by reclaiming all of us and teaching us their ways.

@Emmarie "Teaching us their ways." Except that "their ways" were inferior to the culture and technology of Europeans and Asians. You see most racial native Americans assimilate with the rest of us, and they enjoy having all sorts of technological advancements. While the Natives were hunters and gatherers, the other half of the world already had guns, bigger cities, currency, better technology/scientific advancements, etc.

Emmarie Europeans gave America written language, education and tons of inventions. When Columbus came North America didn't even have the wheel. Europeans were more advanced and therefor were able to take land. Lets not pretend that all Native America tribes were peaceful. The Comanche used to kidnap Natives from other tribes and white settlers and enslave and torture them. They roasted people alive and dragged babies on rapes through cactus's. Thats just one example.
