most us text books mention all of these occurrences... no one is really a native american...those of us born here are natives... there was no developed nation in the us area until the english came over it, cleared the tees planted and made infrastructure...

if you asked when and who discovered america in the modern renaissance era.........that would be columbus...

native americans, even they are not native to 'america', 'native americans' originated from asia across the bering strait between alaska and siberia... that's why numerous native indians have asian like facial features... not to mention native alaskans look very asian... also the indigenous of the 'latin americas' are branches of native americans... so in conclusion asians are pretty much the race that discovered 'america'... no one can say that these natives were already there first, why? 'cause us human race all originated in one place and this is after the pangea...

the natives were here first going over the land bridge that joined siberia to alaska, so it is a long hike... there were several million natives in north america... they did not have to go back home to report to anyone...

from europe.........
the vikings discovered north america 500 years before columbus... they went back to scandinavia and told of a place they named vin land (vine land) or a place where they found wild grapes growing... though they had built longhouses on the finger of newfoundland(which there were remains of the structures) and stayed a couple of years, the conflict with the natives and bad rock land (unsuitable for farming)sent them home...

then 1492 columbus (an italian explorer who sailed under a spanish flag) almost misses by going too far south... he almost discovered cuba "and the man wins a cigar"
but columbus was looking for a shorter way to india and he had never been there before so had no idea what the place looked like... so where he landed he thought was a poorer part of india... he did not bring back the fine silks or perfumes or spices... he did not realize that he had a continent in the way between him and india... he called the native people indians.........thinking he was in india...

it was another explorer later on who had been to india to know that this land was not that land as he lands in a different spot more to the north of columbus and he named it after himself amerigo vespucci (an italian explorer).........or america... ( think,he could have named it vespucca)
later explorers discovered that the gulf of mexico was connecting one land mass to another land mass to the south (or south america...) so as the maps got slowly drawn out by continuous sailing and discovery by various explorers the coastline was marked out... which took numerous years...

some say the land bridge happened some 15000 years ago...
remains of ancient man has been discovered in siberia 300k years ago...
then an archeologist found remains off the mexican coast which were carbon dated in a lab in the u...s... to 250k years old... on youtube somewhere.........i have seen a lot of video's...
so native indigenous population would be much older than 15k...

but really it should go to t-rex and his cousins...
