why are indians reffered to as "Native Americans"?


Indians were called such mainly because early explorers though they had arrived in India. Native American is a terms that distinguishes them from this other group. There are many different tribes with many different languages.

Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "American Indian information" to get these possible sources:
