Native North America by Alt-Reality Native North America by Alt-Reality
What if Native Americans did better? This takes a look at what could have happened, with some major differences. Vinland, a Viking group, thrive instead of wither; Zheng He's expedition lands in California, and introduces a whole new culture. So when the Europeans show up, they have a whole new group on their hands . . .

I can see where some of the turning points would be.  Indian population remains high.  Vikings aren't so aggressive with the natives.  China found some reason for staying (Gold? Might be hard to ship back, though).

Of course, my counterpart doesn't exist here . . .

Your ideas for modern,  independent Native nations are awesome.
Most AU maps reduce them to European protectorates/reservations, too. 
Also, are there any Dutch or German colonies?

Are the United Provinces dominated by any kind of colonists?

This is so incredibly fascinating! I always did wonder things like that. America and the world would be a very different place.

Yes, what if the Europeans arrived in North America, only to discover that India or China has already established thriving colonies?
