History of the Native Americans The first evidence showing indigenous people to inhabit North America indicates that they migrated there from Siberia over 11,000 years ago. More than likely, they crossed the Bering Land Bridge, which was in existence during the Ice Age. After that time period, several large waves of migration took place, including many groups of people from Asia and South America. Generally, the Native Americans lived in peace and prosper until around the 15th century when Europeans first arrived on the shores of North America. At that time, horses were brought over, which began to spread disease among the natives. Since they had no immunity to these strange diseases, thousands began to die from things such as measles and chicken pox. While at one point in time, Native Americans were a very populous group of people, today they only account for 1.4 percent of the United States population.

Culture of India - Hire Freelancers & Find Freelance Jobs Online CSIA-Nitassinan Créé en 1978, sur la demande de représentants autochtones des Amériques, cette association loi 1901 s’efforce depuis de mieux faire connaître les peuples autochtones des Amériques (du Nord, centrale et du Sud) en Europe et de les soutenir dans leurs luttes pour la reconnaissance de leurs droits et l’amélioration de leurs conditions de vie. Les peuples autochtones représentent (selon l’ONU), plus de 300 millions de personnes dans le monde. Ils représentent aussi une richesse humaine et une diversité culturelle immense. Au delà des spécificités géographiques, historiques, sociales et humaines, cinq siècles de colonisation sauvage ont ravagé une aire culturelle, de l’Alaska à la terre de feu. Le génocide systématique, la privation des droits les plus élémentaires et l’ethnocide au quotidien n’ont pas épuisé la résistance d’hommes et de femmes qui refusent obstinément la perte de leurs valeurs et l’assimilation par une culture étrangère et destructrice.
