This web site is dedicated to inform students of the rich history of select Native American groups.  Christopher Columbus did not “discover” America in 1492 as traditional history texts assert.  Rather, he encounter various indigenous inhabitants of present day North America.  Ever since then, Europeans and European-Americans have encroached upon and taken away land from Native Americans.  Below is a map of the continental United States with three Native American tribal links: Cherokee, the Navajo and the Potawatomi.
