`They had not developed into advanced forms of civilization` that is false and a common myth in history. It was also a common myth to the explorers that the native peoples weren't sophisticated (and that they were savages incapable of civilization or something)

`They were organized into two large empires of the Incas and the Aztecs` these two empires did exist, but there were other tribes out there. I'm not sure how many, but definitely more than these 2. If you restrict yourself to a certain geographical area, then you can probably make this statement true

`They were divided into many diverse cultures speaking more than 2,000 different languages` yes there was a lot of diversity. How diverse? I'm not sure. But 2000 doesn't seem that much of a stretch really. Think of north, central and south america combined.

`They relied primarily on nomadic herding of domesticated animals for their sustenance` no clue honestly. I'm sure some tribes did herd, but I think for the most part they were hunter gathers

http://www.infoplease.com/encyclopedia/society/native-american-languages.html quote: `Another widely accepted estimate suggests that at the time of Columbus more than 15 million speakers throughout the Western Hemisphere used more than 2,000 languages; the geographic divisions within that estimate are 300 separate tongues native to some 1.5 million Native Americans N of Mexico, 300 different languages spoken by roughly 5 million people in Mexico and Central America, and more than 1,400 distinct tongues used by 9 million Native Americans in South America and the West Indies.`

oh, ok so I am going to go with the 2000 languages one. wow a person of many talent (smart in lots of subjects). I don't usually do this but can you help with a few more? I accidentally started a test without reading the book and now I have to finish it without having a freaking clue what to do.

I can't help with tests so you're on your own for that. And I'm ok with history. I rely on the internet as my backup.
