All About Native Americans

Montage of Today's Native AmericansAt its broadest, the term Native American can include every indigenous people of both continents of the Americas, but most often it refers to American Indians of the contiguous United States, Alaska natives, and native Hawaiians. Sometimes also the First Nations of Canada, the Inuit, and the Métis. Native Americans are several hundred different tribes with a wide diversity of languages and cultures - as many as you might expect to find on a continent the size of North America who have lived there for thousands of years. The largest tribes today are the Navajo, Cherokee, Sioux, and Chippewa.
