Why is THIS Map Missing from History Books?

When most of us think of American history, we think about the Declaration of Independence and the Revolutionary War. However, there is much more to the history of the United States and much more than the fifty states that we have established.Sadly, much of our true history has been eradicated or otherwise lost due to the various conquerors that “discovered” America. As they “discovered” an already inhabited nation, most of its original culture and history disappeared. What’s worse, is that if you take a quick peek through any history book there is little to no chance that you will find an accurate depiction of what made up the American region before states were created. Furthermore, there is not even a single map depicted in modern history books that show the various Native American tribes that America inhabited by.Before Europeans came to America, there were many different Native American tribes and each one had their own language, religion and culture. And despite their differences, they lived peacefully alongside one another (for the most part) due to their understanding that nature was sacred and was meant to be shared.experts, it is likely that these indigenous people lived this way for around 13,000 years before being discovered by outside nations. They believed that everything was inhabited by spirits, especially those found in nature. Due to this, they understood that in order to flourish, they had to live in harmony with mother nature, rather than working against her.Even now, in 2016, there are 566 recognized tribes in the U.S. However, before Europeans began migrating to North America, there were over 1,000. Unfortunately, from the 16th to 19th centuries the Native American population began dwindling quickly from a population of around 20 million to a low of around 250,000. Now, there are around 2.9 million Native American’s in North America.In 2000, the largest remaining Native American tribes were the Navajo, Cherokee, Choctaw, Sioux, Chippewa, Apache, Blackfeet, Iroquois, and Pueblo. And while there was once over 1000 languages spread throughout the various tribes, there are now around 296 languages remaining. Such languages can be grouped into 29 families, and the remaining 29 languages are unclassified. The remaining tribes are considered by UNESCO as critically endangered, and others have already gone extinct.In our technical age, it is of the utmost importance for us to use our knowledge and power to preserve the true American history. Furthermore, we should be doing all that we can to save the dwindling Native American population, and to educate the children of America on the rich history that existed long before us. Take a moment to share this article around and spread awareness for Native American history.SOURCE
