Product Description: Native Americans in the United States are the indigenous peoples from the regions of North America now encompassed by the continental United States, including parts of Alaska and the island state of Hawai’i. They comprise a large number of distinct tribes, states, and ethnic groups, many of which survive as intact political communities. There has been a wide range of terms used to describe them and no consensus has been reached among indigenous members as to what they prefer to be called collectively. They have been known as American Indians, Amerindians, Amerinds, Aboriginal, Indians, Indigenous, Original Americans, Red Indians, or Red Men. ——————– European colonization of the Americas was a period of conflict between Old and New World cultures. Most of the written historical record about Native Americans began with European contact. Ideologies clashed, old world diseases decimated, religious institutions challenged, and technologies were exchanged in what would be one of the greatest meetings of cultures in the history of the world. Native Americans lived in hunter/farmer subsistence societies with comparatively fewer societal constraints and institutional structures–as well as less focus on the acquisition of material goods and market transactions–than the more unyielding, institutional, market-based societies of Western Europe. The differences between these two cultures were vast enough to make for great misunderstandings and create long-lasting cultural conflicts in the future. ———————— As the colonies revolted against England and established the United States of America, the ideology of Manifest destiny became integral to the American nationalist movement. This ideology accommodated the American policy of attempting to “civilize” native tribes with Western ideals, (as conceived by men such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Henry Knox) and assimilation, (whether voluntary as with the Choctaw, or forced) became a consistent policy through American administrations. Major resistance to American expansion, or “Indian Wars”, were nearly a constant issue up until the 1890s. ——————– Native Americans today have a special relationship with the United States of America. They can be found as nations, tribes, or bands of Native Americans who have sovereignty or independence from the government of the United States, and whose society and culture still flourish amidst a larger immigrated American (such as European, African, Asian, Middle Eastern) populace. Native Americans who were not already U.S. citizens as granted by other provisions such as with a treaty term were granted citizenship in 1924 by the Congress of the United States.
