Native American Literature

How are the tensions of the time of Native American literature (Pre-1600) reflected in American literature?
I know that Native Americans were the first people to start writing literature, or telling oral stories. They were one of peace and nature. Some of the Americans and white people did not agree with Native Americans which caused conflict between the two, like wars. But they did negotiate with a few white people at the time.
I am not sure if my answer is correct or irrelevant for this question.
"Native Americans were the first people to start writing literature" <~~ What? You need to go back and re-think that statement!

What is incorrect about my statement?
Native Americans were the first known people to start telling stories, which in any case was literature, and when the years went by, their literature was discovered ..?
Notice the word "written" in here. How would people who had no concept of writing have a "literature"?
Well their oral traditions, later on were known to be literature. When the Native American Literature was discovered, the type of genre they would be cultural genre?
*I mean their oral stories
