We will be using the term “Indians” frequently and interchangeably on this website with “Native Americans.”

No political agenda is attached to either term. (You can read our lengthy discussion of why Indians are Indians on this website.) By either term, these tribal groups and tribal alliances were here centuries before white European settlers came to the land, and they present a very diverse, rich multicultural picture far more diverse than portrayed in the old Western films and fiction. Just click on the articles below in our “Indians-Native Americans” category and learn all about them. (You’ll also find convenient links within many articles for ordering Native American collectibles from eBay.)
