Affinity Bloc: North American Peoples

Overview: The North American Indigenous people cluster encompasses the indigenous peoples of the United States and Canada. In Canada these people groups are identified as Aboriginal peoples or, excluding Inuits and Metis, First Nations peoples. In the United States they are typically identified as Native Americans. Hundreds of languages were spoken in North America prior to first contact with Europeans beginning in the 11th century but most indigenous languages in North America are in decline with a great many classified as endangered. Christianity is noted as primary religion for most of these people groups.
