The words Native Americans use to allude to themselves differ territorially and generationally, with numerous more established Native Americans self-distinguishing as "Indians" or "American Indians", while more early Native Americans regularly recognize as "Indigenous".

Eighteenth century United States

The United States was willing to grow, to create cultivating and settlements in new territories, and to fulfill area appetite of pioneers from New England and new workers. The Federal government at first looked to buy Native American land by bargains. The states and pioneers were often at inconsistent with this dogma.
