en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indigenous_peoples_of_the_Americas
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Native_Americans_in_the_United_States
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Americas

Your view of what "Native Americans" are is the nativist (ie. Racist) way of looking at it, popularized in the early 20th century. Technically speaking, the word Native American doesn't mean ANYTHING, because the natives of the Americas never actually used the word America.

If you actually think that Native South Americans wouldn't be considered Native Americans, then I have a very sad story for you. The name America is often thought to have originated from Amerigo Vespucci's name. Amerigo Vespucci never went to North America, he only visited South America (specifically near the Amazon). This would mean that the Natives of (South) America would have, at their first discovery, been called NATIVE AMERICANS. They wouldn't be called Native South Americans because North America wasn't discovered (recorded) until 200 years later.

Also cute how you called me retarded and then proceeded to reinforce my argument. If there is no continents of South and North America, then why would you differentiate... North and South Americans...

How about you stop saying stupid things and keep off the internet?

Oh, and maybe you don't know the definition of continent, but simply; there is none. It's an arbitrary word that changes from place to place.

In English-speaking nations: North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, Antarctica

Nations that stood as the axis powers during any part of WWII: North America, South America, Eurasia, Australia, Antarctica

Latin-American nations: The Americas, Asia, Africa, Europe, Oceania, Antarctica

Third-world nations: The Americas, Eurasia, Oceania, The Arctic

so using a term that came to be in the Th century is no longer relevant? i said it is a term used to describe the indigenous people of what is now known as north america,not america, while this may have been the case in centuries past(before countries were established) it is now a popular term even used in advanced history books. i never argued the origin of the name america i am well aware of that Amerigo part, also if you seem to think you re so smart why would you make a point to disprove my first comment by saying that the Americas are two different continents when you yourself said its definition was subjectivea term used to describe the indigenous people of what is now known as north america

Using terms that were only used to marginalize others, yes.

I guess, under your logic, it's also completely socially acceptable to refer to all black people as niggers, and assume that they are slaves.

Also, I understand that you have never learned to use critical thinking, or derive information from text, so I will make it clear: The word is not subjective, the word is region dependent. (if you are in America, you call long pieces of fried potato "fries", but if you are in England, you call them "chips". You however, cannot do it the opposite way around, at the risk of having your meaning misconstrued)

Also, the word Native American is NOT variable. It has a concise meaning that you can derive from the name. That's right, Native Americans are natives of America.

Now, if you think that America is a single continent; then congratulations, there's your answer.

And, if you think that South America and North America are two different continents, it would be logical that natives would be separated by being Native North Americans and Native South Americans. Further logic would dictate that the word "Americas" is a plural of the two Americas, and therefore the two continents would STILL be classified as the Americas.

Also, maybe (again, due to your inability to think critically and see context) you missed what I intended with the fact about Amerigo Vespucci:

If Americo Vespucci, the man who America is named after, only knew of ONE continent (South America), wouldn't it be safe to assume that HE would only refer to it as "America", and not as "South America", considering he only thought that there was one part to "America"?

Now, to maybe make this a little easier for you to understand: If I use the word Natives of China, it could be assumed that I am referring to the group that consists of Native Chinese, Native Japanese, Native Koreans, etc. etc.

oh dude i realize know this is probably the most fun you get out the internet, and while youre apparent desire to make me come off as a racist ignorant is amusing i must take a break from this debacle, ill leave you with this;

would you agree to say that native Americans while denotatively referrers to Americans indigenous to `both Americas `(just america for me), connotatively referrers to north Americans of American descent



also, subjective has many meaning among them personal prejudice or existing in the mind, which i find to be a good way to employ the word, i could go on about how i digress in terms of your opinion and while, but as i stated above i must take a break, it 4:30 am over here

Please, do not attempt to use words that you do not understand. You could have continued using your naturally childish vocabulary, and you wouldn't have seemed like you were such an idiot. Your entire second sentence almost came off as the type you would read in a third grade essay of a first grade-level student who thought he was a college-level student...

I'll assume that under correct grammar, you meant "Would you agree to say that the word Native Americans -- while in denotation refers to Americans, indigenous to America -- refers, in connotation to North Americans of American descent?"

And if so, no. That question is stupid. Connotation is often dependent on whom you are speaking to.

Generally, if you are speaking to somebody who is uneducated and says things like "America is one continent, unless we're referring to the people, in which case, it is two continents" then yes, they will say that Native Americans are specific to North America (and will also babble like an idiot when you ask them to explain what South American Natives are called)

But, if you talk to somebody who has at least the BASELINE of intelligence, they will tell you that the person above (Spoiler: It's you) is completely stupid, and could probably not form a cohesive thought lasting more than their own attention span.

Yes, subjectivity is governed by having many individual meanings. So here's your subjectivity.

The word Native Americans has ALWAYS referred to Natives of NORTH and SOUTH America. It wasn't until the 1930s, when a group of people known as "nativists" decided that they wanted all Blacks, Asians and Mexicans to be thrown out of the country. To accomplish this, they stated that the only people Native to America (Native Americans) were people who had been born in the United States. Later, they amended this statement to disallow even more minorities by limiting this to "them pesky injuns and WASPs".

Have fun basing your views of culture on archaic Red Scare-era racism.

America =/= The United States of America

The continents of North and South America make up the entity of "America" for that reason, Aztecs and Mayans are both considered Native American tribes.
#44 - snoopyshouse (05/11/2012) [-]
oh boy, this argument again,` native american` is a term used to describe the indigenous people of what is now known as north america. Mayans and Aztecs are Americans, south Americans more specifically moreover, i was referring to the civilizations and their cultures(there were a lot of civilizations in south america before the whole Spaniard invasion, so calling them south american tribes or something along those lines would be vague)not their nationalities, which they didn't have back then to begin with BTW. also, you're retarded, north and South america aren't two separate continents, the continent is called america not the culture or whatever you referred to as `america`.

Bagua is all about circles and always moving. It is very foot oriented in that the stance is everything. Tai Chi Chuan is all about the flow of ones body. The body must be serene, yet always prepared.

It is always best to look for places that teach them as Martial Arts, and doesn't advertise them as "Healthy, slow motions" and such. Tai Chi is a lot harder than they think and needs a lot of attention.
