Default Re: Do you think the Indians and White Man could have got along?

It wouldn't have ended up much different for the colonists. The Native Americans got wiped out because the White man brought their foreign diseases with them. The colony of Roanoke possibly could have survived if the two sides were friendly with one another, but do you really think that the Native Americans wouldn't freak out when the diseases start hitting?

As for the conquers, they'd just be explorers instead and development of trade would be massively slower. South America and Central America would be less likely to have Spanish speaking cultures.

Even if they did get along, problems pertaining property will arise no matter what.

No because that isnt the right word for it.
