Recently here in the states some big coal executives who'd been busted for keeping false safety records - so they could make more money - insulted ALL of Appalachia by saying that inbreeding was the cause of the poor safety records. This map by Bill Rankin, a Yale historian and cartographer, shows all the places that Europeans actually discovered. The missionary kingdoms addressed problems of European lawlessness in the islands by attempting to enforce a scriptural code of law. On the other hand, the Europeans considered these ethnic traits of these Native Americans might with minimal difficulty be altered to resemble European civilizations. Why don't libraries smell like bookstores? The Apache and Navajo are somewhere around You. Also, as you pointed out, it can be confusing.
