Default why didnt native americans FIGHT back?

http://nativeamericanhistory.about.c...an-Country.htm
or fight harder to defend their land? europeans went into north and south america and just completely obliterated the natives. the after effects? a few protests, some private land, but seriously, why didn't they collectively put their minds together and start a revolution?

i think natives got it worse than so-called blacks, TBH

One side had guns. The other side did not. The end.

why don't you fight back when a navy seal breaks into your home and shoves a revolver down your throat?

that's not some radical analogy to the native american genocide that gave birth to the united states, canada, and many other carribean and south american countries today. in fact its pretty apt.

It's kind of sad that people so badly want to insult each other for no reason. While I'm sure that your ass is much smarter than mine when Europeans first encountered Indians the Indians didn't have guns. Sure, they got Europeans hand-me-downs over time but they were always far behind (as I will give you credit for knowing, this makes you a wonderful human being) in miolitary technology. The "fight" was never fair in that regard. Foreign diseases didn't help but guns were the most important factor. Which is what I meant, but I forgot that there are people on the internet that require an essay detailing every little point they want to make. My bad.

this helped quicken the destruction of native american empires but they were doomed from the get go regardless of the germs that killed them off so much more quickly. we're talking about 500 years ago.... in fact the supposed 500th anniversary of the european conquest of the americas was about 13 years ago if i'm not mistaken. bottom line being what they managed to do in a few hundred years with the help of their livestock's germs they would have done anyway by now. and the natives were not capable of defending themselves adequately.

Bro.

Disease, dispersion and death are pretty meaningless when you compare it to the fact that there are actually guys throwing a ball around and chasing after it AS WE SPEAK who are known by the appellation 'Redskins.'


It's time we get our priorities straight.

Their numbers were absolutely decimated by diseases.

Still, they fought. If the native Americans weren't there, North America would have been "conquered" at least 100 years quicker than it was.

Compare to Africa. Europeans colonized Africa but never "conquered" it because Africans were not susceptible to European diseases, and so their numbers held up.

Unless you mean the Americas as a whole when you say "Native American" I don't know what empires you're talking about.
