Do you consider native American as the orignal Americans of the us?

How far back do you want to go for your answer? Because we could go farther back than the more commonly known "Native Americans"...n

I do not. America was named by White/Hispanic Explorers. The people living on the continent had no Religious or Cultural concept of ownership so when the Lenape of the Algonquin Tribe sold Manhattan, they were committing fraud. Only later did those people's understand the value of land and committed Cultural Appropriation by demanding monies (or property) from the perceived value of lands they wandered on as hunter/gatherers. What we now call "Natives" are still very good trackers ...

North American natives belonged to hundreds of individual tribal nations. There is only one USA, founded by a western culture unlike any previously here. While indigenous populations are whole members of the nation state now, they did not originate it.

They don't care if 'i' consider them original or not. If you were here "originally" and I walk in from (or my grandparents walked in from Italy) then I am the foreigner and YES, you are the original American. How can my opinion change that?

If the majority of Mexicans aren't really European Spanish but descendents of the original Indian population... then this makes them the legitimate Americans and all Europeans into the illegals, the ones who came over as economic migrants from poverty in their native countries. I like this idea.

As close as any we have. Many are enrolled members of tribes which are considered as sovereign nations within the US complete with their own laws and protocols.
