Upon Christopher Columbus’ arrival to America, he mistakenly thought he had reached the ‘Indies’. He decided to call the people he met here, Indians. Though activists have preferred the term Native Americans since the 1960’s.
The native people of the Americas were said to have crossed a land bridge from Siberia into Alaska and migrated across the entire Western hemisphere of the globe. From Alaska, through North America, to central and south America, the native ‘Indians’ inhabited every part of this land.
Europeans found civilizations with rich cultures in the new world. Hunters and gatherers, this land was abundant in wildlife and vegetation. South American natives built large ‘temple cities’ and used a form of writing and pictures to record events, called hieroglyphics. They had a religion with many deities and one “Great Spirit” who created all life.
