We should be helping you to gain economic benefit from protecting the Amazon, not cutting it down.

Many people will not be content until the whole planet is covered with asphalt, concrete and oil wells. Would appear that the only green they like are dollar bills, in the bank.

Indians is widespread in the German generic name for the Native Americans, so the people who had inhabited the continent prior to the onset of colonization by Europeans in 1492. Not included here are the Inuit and other peoples of the Arctic and the U.S. Pacific Islands. The ancestors of the Indians have come from Asia in prehistoric times, and possibly from other continents to America and have a variety of cultures and languages developed. Indians is a designation by the foreign colonialists, a corresponding self-designation of the extremely different, well over two thousand groups does not exist. However, there are cross-terms in Canada, the U.S. and the former Spanish and the Portuguese part of the Americas.

John Ross, Cherokee chief from 1828 to 1866, 1843, the ancestors of today's Indians are regarded as the first human inhabitants of the Americas, while the Inuit are comprehensible only about ten thousand years later. They developed the first continuous brought hunter-gatherer cultures that lived primarily soon land mammals such as bison, caribou or guanacos, rheas also. They sailed well in the 10th Millennium the Pacific Ocean along the Küste.0 The use of ceramics, various forms of agriculture, such as the onset of the 4000 BC cultivation of pumpkins, and graded very sedentary and long-distance trade before the cultures featured in the north of the continent, while the South regional irrigated agriculture to higher returns and before 3000 BC led to urban cultures, which spread north to the Mississippi and south of Canada. In addition, there were still hunter-gatherer cultures that used the landscape, however, a much greater scale and modified, as long believed.
Within a few decades, especially Spaniards destroyed the empires of Central and South America. Even more devastating impact came from the Europeans brought with diseases that depopulated, often without direct contact with the invaders, entire regions. In North America the Indians from 1600 fell gradually in the minority, because their numbers decreased rapidly, while that of whites increased. This process lasted until the 19th and early 20th Century, and reversed in some places at the moment. Only in some areas of particularly high population density, such as in Bolivia and southern Mexico are Indians are in the majority. Most states attempted by targeted policy of assimilation - especially by instruction of children in boarding schools and by attempts to make Indians into farmers - extinguish considered as inferior cultures and languages, and sparked the policy of repression, segregation on reservations, forced relocation and segregation from partially without completely abandoning. Today, their cultures, which are often closely tied to their natural environment, especially the politics of development and industrialization, as well as the exploitation of natural resources is a danger against which contact the victims to defend themselves. The Traumatisierungsfolgen have long been underestimated or ignored, since the end of the 20th Century churches and meanwhile some governments for abuse and cultural destruction have apologized, in Bolivia is governed by a party led by an Indian. In addition, they now offer training and education and the mastery of Kolonialistensprachen participation opportunities and skills to enforce contractual and political rights also.
