Native Americans may technically have "immigrated" to North America across
the Bering land bridge thousands of years ago. However, they are not really an
immigrant group in the traditional sense. Native Americans were here long before a
European ever set foot in North America. They are included in this series because
the impact that European immigration had on their cultures and their way of life is
striking and profound. In their quest for more and more land, European immigrants
pushed Native Americans off their ancestral lands and forced them onto reservations.
Today, the more than 2.5 million Native Americans living in the United States
and Canada are still struggling to find their place in countries that have become
largely lands of immigrants. This book provides information about the native cultures
of North America and explains what factors led to the dominance of more recent
arrivals to the continent.
