The once peaceful people who live in what is now North, Central, and South America. But since the Europeans came over the ocean, everything has changed, no shit. The Spanish and Africans (slaves) blended with many of the southern natives who weren't dead yet. Some natives retreated far into the mountains and forests (and saved their languages and cultures) so in a way, they were luckier than the northern natives. As for them, they were nearly fucking exterminated (again through diseases, poverty, and murders). 95% of natives were killed by the mid 1800's. And it didn't help when they were "removed" by the people who believed in Manifest Destiny, forced onto reservations (might as well be concentration camps), forbidden to practice traditions and speak their languages, and converted to Catholicism.more...
Here's a few random things people should know:
1. DON'T compare our suffering to other peoples' (like the Africans and Jewish people). What, is there a contest to see who's suffered the most?
2. It's safe to say that we LOVE to dance and sing. And have sexual relations. Some more obvious than others.
3. Not all of us are fucking alcoholic
The race or religious group that resides in a certain region or township. Much like the Native Americans living on a "reservation" or say a shit skin (nigga) who tend to live in Harlem, Washington D.C., Detroit or alike.
Mud Sharks are white females who live in a strictly black neighborhood and only date the indigenous populace or IP.
adj. an inconsistent, unreliable and disingenuous grasp of indigenous identity.
When she heard there was a scholarship for Native Americans, she suddenly "remembered" her heritage.
Yeah, she's kinda disindigenous.
Ferdinand Magellan set out from Spain in 1519 on the first voyage to circumnavigate the globe with five ships and a complement of 264 crew. Three years later in 1522, only the one ship, the Victoria, returned to Spain with 18 men.more...
The Philippines were the death of Magellan. The expedition sighted the island of Samar on March 16, 1521. Magellan was welcomed by two Rajas, Kolambu and Siagu. He named the islands the Archipelago of San Lazaro, erected a cross and claimed the lands for Spain. The friendly Rajas took Magellan to Cebu to meet Raja Humabon. Humabon and 800 Cebuanos were baptized as Christians. Magellan agreed to help Raja Humabon put down Lapu-Lapu, a rebellious datu on the nearby island of Mactan. In a battle between Spanish soldiers and Lapu-Lapu's warriors, Magellan was killed on April 27, 1521.
Disputes over women caused relations between Raja Humabon and the remaining Spaniards to deteriorate. The Cebuanos killed 27 Spaniards in a skirmish and the Spaniards, deciding to resume their explorations, departed Cebu.
For all its losses, the voyage was a huge financial success. The Victoria's 26 ton cargo of cloves sold for 41,000 ducats. This returned the 20,000 ducats the venture had cost plus a 105 percent profit. Four more expeditions followed between 1525 and 1542. The commander of the fourth expedition, Ruy Lopez de Villalobos, named the islands after Philip, heir to the Spanish throne (r. Philip II 1556-1598).
The Philippines was not formally ...
This is a politically correct term used to refer to the indigenous people of the American Continents. They are also referred to as American Indians.more...
Native Americans originally came to the North American continent somewhere around 12,000 years ago from East Asia. It is thought that their migration happened over a number of centuries rather than all at once.
In the Americas they formed many different tribes each with a unique culture and history. Contrary to popular belief, only some were nomadic. Most had developed cities and advanced systems of government, language, and social structure.
The coming of the Spanish had many devastating effects for the Native Americans. Diseases such as plague and smallpox wiped out more than 95% of the indigenous population within the first hundred years of contact.
The Europeans also imposed harsh terms on the Natives. Many were massacred for no apparent reason other than hate and greed. Often the Europeans were controlled by the search for gold. Christopher Columbus himself and many others took them as slaves. The only reason this did not pan out long term is because the Natives died too quickly from exposure to new viruses. It was then that the Europeans decided to use African slaves instead since they already had previous exposure to the diseases of the Old World and were, therefore, less likely to die.
The Natives were forced off their lands as more settlers came to the continent. They were pushed further and fu...

A Native American Pueblo (Tiwa People) located in the Southwest of the United States, more specifically in the north central part of the State of New Mexico. These people speak the ancient Tiwa language. This ancient indigenous settlement has been continuously inhabited by the Taos Pueblo Native Americans long before there was ever such a thing as the United States or even the State of New Mexico. In fact this group of people was in conflict with the Spaniards that came into their region in the 1600’s. In these ancient people’s eyes ‘recent’ people as of the 1800’s and onward are all considered Immigrants to them. Taos is the northernmost of the nineteen New Mexico Pueblos.more...
For more information on this group of Native American people please perform an internet search on ‘Taos Pueblo’.
So NO this is not ORIGINALLY an old Spanish colonial outpost of indigenous Chicano people (squatters) it’s the home to the Native American group of Taos Pueblo people. These people have lived in their mountain valley hundreds of years before Europe emerged from the Dark Ages. So you people out there, you better RECOGNIZE this fact!!! Oh yeah, do continue to ‘test’ your expensive outdoor gear there “like you’re all that” while you drop some major fundage in these Native American’s valley. It’s ALL GOOOD!!! By bringing your money to them and demo-ing your expensive outdoor gear in front of them you save them the hassle of finding out what works and what doesn’t. It can’t get an...
