I have a long history of Indian history in my family. I'm more than positive everything i've said in this thread is truth to my people. Sorry it isn't truth to yours.





No need to send american history links, for gods sake they are teaching you it was called an island....

I think it's possible. I personally believe that the Americas were colonized by people from all over, but have little evidence for it. Just a personal belief.

Hardly. Cherokee were a coastal tribe. Look in the center for the orginal inhabitants.

Re: I HAVE A QUESTION? What did the indians call the USA before we named it?
I know. I am an historian.

The American Natives called their land "Their Land"

They could not conceive of other people having a right to the land. Hence they would kill any trespasser.

That is the reason why they did not fill the land. they were always killing each other.

No need to send american history links, for gods sake they are teaching you it was called an island....




so what do you think?


I think it's possible. I personally believe that the Americas were colonized by people from all over, but have little evidence for it. Just a personal belief.

so it could be possible that Jews were one of the first people here then?



Hardly. Cherokee were a coastal tribe. Look in the center for the orginal inhabitants.

cherokees are well known for intermarrying with white or european people



That isn't entirely true. It wasn't until the white man was killing / stealing them did this happen.

Re: I HAVE A QUESTION? What did the indians call the USA before we named it?
Turtle Island is the English language translation of many Native American tribes' terms for the continent of North America. The term is proposed as a substitute for or synonym for North America. The term was brought into popular usage by Gary Snyder through his book Turtle Island[1]

in 1974. In a later essay, published in At Home on the Earth,[1] Snyder claimed this title as a term referring to North America which synthesizes both indigenous and colonizer cultures by translating the indigenous name into the colonizer's languages (the Spanish "Isla Tortuga" being proposed as a name as well). Snyder argues that understanding North America under the name of Turtle Island will help shift conceptions of the continent.

Referring to North America as Turtle Island suggests a view of North America not merely as a land "discovered" and colonized by people of European descent, but as a land inhabited and stewarded by a collection of rich, diverse, and civilized peoples. This collection may have room for both indigenous and colonizer cultures. This re-framing of the identity of North America is intended to bring about a better cohabitation of these two groups of people. Finally the term suggests to some interpreters a more holistic relationship between people and the continent's ecology, visualizing Turtle Island as an amalgamation of bioregions.

Oh, no. There were people in North America long before Abram became Abraham. If any Jews did come over, they were relatively recent.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 592399

Actually the original inhabitants of North America were Caucasoids. Their bones have been dated from 20,0000 BC to 11,000 BC where the Mongoloids appeared to have wiped them out. Killed the men and raped the women just like Mohammed always did with the Jews.
