American Indians Introduction Thousands of years ago, around 1200B.C., the Indians shaped the civilization of America as hunter-gatherers making their way into America through a stretch of bridge linking America and Asia through Alaska and Siberia. The land bridge was a stretch of ecological grazing land serving as a habitat to horses, reindeer, and mammoths. While the Indian migrants pursued their prey across the stretch of land, into North America, their migration marked the birth of civilization in America. Over time, they adjusted to the foreign environment as they moved east and south of the land. Before the arrival of Christopher Columbus on American soil, most of the original inhabitants in American were Indians.
They penetrate countless river systems of Western Europe and attack settlements. They keep on discovering new islands in the North Atlantic and reached Iceland in 770 AD (Love, 2006, p. 4). It was then largely an inhabitant land with a small population of Irish monks. However, they Vikings moved further and reached Greenland and North America in the 10th century. They, later on, make efforts to establish settlements in the modern day L'Anse aux Meadows, which is now a historic site of archaeological importance in Canada.

Despise or ignore the individualism, may lead to dislocation of the behavior or the opposite result. The United States is in the European immigrants as the main body established on the basis of, as a result, American culture are built on the basis of European culture. It inherits the European traditional culture, which also includes the European spirit of individualism and heroism. Europe has a long history of the spirit of the knights and ancient Greek and Roman mythology has become the source of American-style personal heroism.
In the sixteenth century British ships set out to conquer the world. They were amongst the countries to colonize the newfound America. Like many other European countries they entered a foreign country and claimed it as theirs with no regards of the people already living there. When we talk about the British Empire, we actually have two different Empires. The first Empire was from 1450-1800, and the main focus was on America.
The Effects of European Colonization and Exploration on the American Indians The first evidence showing that American Indians inhabited the North American continent indicated that they migrated from Siberia, most likely crossing the Bering Land Bridge, over eleven thousand years ago. From there, the American Indians became a nomadic people and roamed the continent until they found a region that suited their needs for food, water, and shelter. The American Indians living on the east coast and on river inlets were the first to encounter the Europeans, who some American Indians, especially the Aztecs, believed to be gods because of their shiny, silver armor, ship sails that looked like clouds, and their loud, unrecognizable weapons. This belief
In America, Spain, France, Britain and Russia (In parts of Alaska) had colonised the vast majority of the country. On the east, Britain and France had colonised almost all modern-day states, Spain’s authority was primarily in Central and South America and the southern states in America. The long-lasting impact of European colonialism in America was defined by the American Revolution, which not only ended with a collapse in the British colony, but the Treaty of Paris was signed, granting recognition of the colonies independence (Calloway, 2006). This was the beginning of modern America, and this was clearly impacted, if not completely due to European imperialism. The British Empire notably colonised Australia and sent upwards of 150,000 criminals to prisons on the country (Shaw, 1966).

This root reminds us that the practice of colonialism usually involved the transfer of population to a new territory, where the arrivals lived as permanent settlers while maintaining political allegiance to their country of origin (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy).
The settlers and the native people of America have contributed a good collection of books which constitute the body of American Literature. Any book written will register the life style of people, their food habits, culture, beliefs, system of education followed, the nature of children and their history. The books written by the writers from the United States of America have registered the expectations, hopes, future predictions along with warnings their fear for degeneration of moralities and the impacts of Industrial revolutions. American Literature was acutely carved by the history of the United Nations of America. In the beginning after a great revolution for more than a century and half America became the United States.
