The Native American Indians are an important part of the culture of the United States. While their people have lived on this land for thousands of years, today their numbers are dwindling. Once, the Native Americans lived on this continent with little discourse and disruption. They were well fed, content and established. I come from that ethnic group that has been a part of the Americas before the white man came to settle in these lands. The American Indian had established colonies from South America all the way to Alaska only to be torn from their lands and reduced to living on reservation spread out across the United States.
