    The traditional system is to begin with the commencing of European exploration and agreement. I believe this is a misguided procedure for the reason that it implies that america began when the first white man came; this isn't genuine. Native american citizens had been a bright and somewhat advanced civilization with cultural complexities of their own and must be studied in American history. I would by way of studying native American tribes: their customs, history, and religion after which make my approach into the way in which European advancement shaped the nation.
