    Well, let's see....the US constitution is copied from the Iroquois constitution. Concepts such as equal rights for women, modern standards of hygiene, tolerance for other religions and acceptance of homosexuals are all native american in origin. Today, 70% of the world's food crop consists of plants first bred, developed and cultivated by native americans: Chocolate, Vanilla, corn (including popcorn) Lima beans, kidney beans, green beans, pinto beans and a dozen other varieties, squash, melons, potatoes, tomatoes, chili peppers, brazil nuts, peanuts, cashews, pinon nuts, and a host of other foods. inventions such as canoes and kayaks (still used today) snow shoes, snow goggles, toboggans... they help shape some of our culture... and they were the first to arrive to the united states. they were intelligent and use techniques that we still use today.
