They have long been known as Indians because of the belief prevalent at the time of Columbus that the Americas were the outer reaches of the Indies (. Most scholars agree that Native Americans came into the Western Hemisphere from Asia via the Bering Strait or along the N Pacific coast in a series of migrations.

When America was first discovered, it was found to be inhabited by a race of men different from any already known. They were called Indians, from the West Indies, where they were first seen, and which Columbus, according to the common opinion of that age, supposed to be a part of the East Indies. On exploring the coasts and the interior of the vast continent, the same singular people, in different varieties, were everywhere discovered.

The Pilgrims settled in a good place to farm, because they settled in an abandoned Indian farming village, not an untouched wilderness. All the inhabitants of the village had recently died of smallpox. Indeed, since Mexico is usually counted as part of North America, there were significant civilizations with a history stretching back to the Olmec in the early first millennium BC. Even north of the Rio Grande, there were many settled farming societies.

Describes the way of life, history, and customs of those Indians of North America known as the gatherers, with special emphasis on the Paiutes.
