The Native Americans

The Native Americans

by Richard Bowen

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.
