    Between the late 15th century and the early 19th century, the native population in the Americas vanished.

Americans forget they are standing on the heritage of millions of Native Americans that lived there for thousands of years. The Native American peoples have a very rich culture and are mistakenly believed to be “all one type.” Calling all Native Americans the same is similar to calling the people of Europe identical just because they are all vaguely similar.…
