Native America before European Colonization

Upon the arrival of Columbus in 1492 in the Carabean Islands, unknown to Columbus (and majority of the Eastern Hemisphere), he landed on Islands located in the middle of two huge continents now known has North America and South America that was teaming with huge Civilizations (that rivaled any in the world at that time) and thousands of smaller Nations and Tribes. With recent estimations, the population may have been over 100 million people that spanned from Alaska and Green Land, all the to the tip of southern South America. 

Pre Colombian North America (north of Mesoamerica):

In Pre-Canada, most people lived along the coast, along the major rivers

"People should stop talking about Christopher Columbus likes he's some great explorer, the man's a murderer, a genocidal maniac."

Sad history, now they all speak Spanish and Portuguese and have Spanish and Portuguese names. Every ethnic group on this planet has had issues with a White people. Research it if you don't believe me.

People of the Internet, watch this to learn and respect what happened in the past. Take it with a grain of salt sure (it's not unbiased that's for sure), but why all the hate in the comments?? We have no control over the deeds of our ancestors. Let's just try to learn from history and come together, Native American, white American, black, asian, whatever! We have problems facing us in the world right now.. Let's respect and remember the people of the past, especially victims of persecution and prejudice, but let's not use the past to draw lines between races and cultures that do nothing but divide us as a people.
