    Natives have lived in America over 50,000 years. We were (and still are) farmers. We didn't "migrate" from anywhere.

    (there was an old out-dated theory we "migrated" from asia via the bering strait, but that was disproven decades ago)

    Europeans came to the americas looking for gold and slaves

    The impact on natives was that 95% of the native population was destroyed by smallpox, measles, and influenza- diseases brought by Europeans which natives had no immunity to.
