Abstract: The new world, vast, untamed, and virtually unspoiled when found by the first white explorers, was abundant with plant and animal life: but also populated by humans. These humans numbered in the millions. Among these new found humans, there were many different cultures and languages, customs and religions. Some roamed the land hunting and fishing, while others lived settled lives farming as their ancestors had for thousands of years. These people were fascinating to the white explorers. The whites could not understand how so many traditions and languages could exist within one place. This complexity was new to the first white explorers of America.
