Fun Fact: The formal Spanish and Portuguese terms to call an American, as in someone born in the US, is ''estadounidense'' and ''estadunidense'' respectively; its rough equivalent in English would be Usonian, a term used by the architect Frank Lloyd Wright. That's very awkward in all English dialectcts because it's never used and the proper term, in all English dialects, for someone from the United States is ''American''. The proper Spanish/Portugese term for someone from the US is either ''Americano'' or ''Americana''.

On the other hand, while the Church was involved in the destruction of material that was culturally invaluable, it also protected the natives (the very argument that Amerindians had souls was something proposed by Catholic teologists),gave some of the original languages an alphabet and written forms in order to keep them alive and encouraged the creation of the Cuzco School of Art.

The "correct" term of calling the continents is something disputed and depends on the language: most of the speakers of Romance languages refer to the continents as America, uniting South and North and seeing them as subcontinents of a whole and adding one more subcontinent, Central America, to make allusion to the nations between Mexico and Colombia; anglo-speakers whoever tend to call the continents in plural form.

The continent of America was populated at some point during the Ice Age. While it was often held that people came first through the stretch of Bering (the one mentioned above), now it has been theorized and mostly confirmed that the first people came not from the north, but from the south in the same way of the people who afterwards populated Australia and most of Oceania's islands, as shown by the fact that the first signs of civilization are found mostly in South America: the city of Caral, first city of the continent, is the prime example.

It was also home to various different and unique cultures, the most representative ones being the Aztecs in North America, the Mayans in North and Central America, and the Incas in South America.

The term "American" is something of debate and its roots are often found in the identification of the countries of the continent: the Spanish and Portuguese called American anyone who was born in the continent, a trend continued by the nations of Latin America; the English instead named the inhabitants of its colonies as Americans. Which terms must be given priority is [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement something that won't be discussed here]].
