Indians in the Americas have a history like that of no other culture that has set foot on this land. As the original inhabitants of the western continents, Native Americans had acquired vast knowledge about the territory and had developed a system of survival that was later helpful to European explorers. When Christopher Columbus accidentally navigated upon the new world, he was sure that he had found a short cut to India, hence he called the natives Indians and the name has stuck with them until today. Europeans were very fortunate to have stumbled upon such noble people. With the exception of very few isolated incidents, Native Americans were very welcoming to the European new comers. Thanks to the assistance of the Indians, many of the settling colonies were able to survive rough winters, droughts and they learned how to farm and hunt in the unfamiliar terrains. It is possible that the voyage to the new world could have been a failure if it wasn’t for the support of the kind Indians.
