Earliest Native Americans were actually next generation of people who came across from Asia through the land bridge in 15.000 BP. They had separated into several different regions in all around the continent. Some of them had to diversify their food sources since there was no more mammoths anymore. So they had to hunt little animals by bow and arrow and started to grew plants which was easy to store until Europeans brought them fire arms and domesticated animals. There were few powerful tribes in America. In the eastern cost tribe called Algonquin ruled almost entire region. And so was Aztecs in Meso-America.

The earliest Americans are actually Asians, not Europeans. Around 15,000 BP, Asians crossed Asia to America by walking through the land bridge. People are not sure why they crossed the land bridge but we can guess that they were hunting mammoth and following them for food and their goods. After arrival in America, the climate got warmer and most of the mammoths died. because of it, the hunters had to find the different source of food like roots of the plant, nuts, and small animals. As the time passed, people who are in American, they spread out in many different regions and each region had their own way for living and culture.

I like how it has important facts in a short paragraph and he mostly mentioned the key point of the history of native Americans. Mayne removes about Europeans brought them fire-arms since the question is describe how America was before Europeans showed up. Maybe also add little details about Aztecs and Meso-America since he brought it up.

Suhan adverted some good points. He said Americans had came across from Asia, which means Native Americans were technically descendants of ancient Asians. He also mentioned that the fact that we know isn't really 100 percent sure. It is only a prediction, made by all sorts of data. For example, tools they used or consideration of the living environment at the time period.

Aboriginal people living in the Americas were killed by European immigrants. That number is unimaginable. Europeans were so greedy that they took America's warm climate and gold from the Americas. After that they returned to Europe with gold and brought many weapons and invaded them again. At that time the Indians were a minority and could not resist. For example, they were afraid of seeing only the horse of the Spanish army. In addition, an epidemic began to occur among the Native Americans and the population was eradicated again.

Many thousands of years ago, not a single human being live in America. This changed during the last Ice Age. During Ice Age, Bering Land Bridge was formed between east coast of Siberia and west coast of Alaska. People from Asia crossed this land bridge to America probably following their food source, mammoth. After they crossed the land bridge, they spread out across America for warmer climate, and more food. After mammoth become extinct, they had to develop new eating habits. They began farming, hunting small animals, etc. There were 3 major big empire in South America before European invasion. Which were Aztec Maya and Inca.
