This map should be included in every history book.
This is why I don’t like the term Native American or even like Indigenous People. It cancels the numerous different groups of people that lived here
Don’t forget this.
The reason that pre-colonized American history is taught in a short breath, in a way that is totally unlike how European history is taught (“yah there were these tribes who lived off the land and were so noble and primitive until Christopher Columbus came and things got interesting” vs. “There were complex cultures and different people in different areas who traded and fought exactly like what was going on across the Atlantic at the time, so for example there were extensive trade routes between A and B in this territory while X and Y made an alliance to unite against Z, and then this important ruler, inventor, artist lived… etc etc etc”) is racism, pure and simple. Anyone who says otherwise (PARTICULARLY if they claim that nothing interesting was going on or try to state that the Americas were purely “primitive” or lesser in some fashion” they are either lying or terribly misinformed.
This is why “Native American” is not a one-size-fits-all banner. This is why you sound just as stupid saying someone was or is “Cherokee or Sioux, or Mohawk or whatever” as you sound saying “They were English, or German, or Irish or whatever”. They are distinct cultures who lived in distinct areas and had disparate histories. And, due to horrendous colonialism and blatant white washing, these are repressed histories.
So do your homework, especially if you live in the Americas and are from a background that at any point contained immigrants (and don’t you look at me and say you’re “Just American” because you can claim somebody on the Mayflower because I will explain you many things). They don’t teach this how they should, so you must educate yourself.
