Have you ever wondered what "Pre Columbian" meant? Well, that's why I'm here.
It means "of or relating to the history and cultures of the Americas before the arrival of Columbus in 1492."
Before Columbus, Paleo-Indians were the inhabitants of the Americas. Scientific studies show that these Indians came from Africa and Asia.
My name is Columbus and I am the founder of America!
Even though there were people who already lived there, he called it the "New World." He thought he was in India, so he called the people Indians.
Many religions that the Natives practiced are still active. Large civilizations like the Aztecs, Olmecs, and Mayans were around during that time period.
We had our own civilization, but when Columbus came, they brought diseases and we got very sick.
This chocolate is so delicious! Did you know that the Aztecs and Mayans were the Creators of Chocolate? THE END
