The native peoples of the north American continent, often erroneously referred to as Indians. These were a tribal people who were a disparate group, many were settled in wide, relatively isolated areas while other tribes had close proximity to others. Generally this refers to those tribal nations who lived north of the Rio Grande river and south of Hudson Bay, with most peoples living in the continental United States. Some tribes did migrate towards what is now Canada but are still considered Native Americans due to their migrations south to the continental United States.
