Native Americans

Native Americans, also known as American Indians, Indigenous Americans, or First Nations people, are the original inhabitants of the present-day United States. This diverse and culturally rich group encompasses numerous tribes, each with its own unique languages, traditions, and histories. Native American societies thrived across the continent long before the arrival of European settlers.

Their history is marked by a deep connection to the land, with many tribes relying on sustainable practices such as agriculture, hunting, and gathering. Native American cultures are characterized by a strong sense of community, spirituality, and a rich oral tradition that preserves their stories and wisdom.
