The Spanish killed off most of the Indians with their diseases. The proof is what they also did to the Native Indians in South America. Also, look at
the map of the history of the U.S. Most of them were Spanish and French. It's noted that most of the Indians died off before major European
settlements, and the British came last. Now the U.S did expand westward after gaining independence from the British. But if we were to go by this
logic, then China, and probably, most countries, were not formed legitly either.
I mean, if you were to study the history of China entirely, you'll see that it's just a bunch of conquered tribes who now call themselves Chinese,
because their ancestors got conquered and their culture got erased. It all started out as the State of Chu(who annexed territories around them by
force), and became the Han Dynasty, then because the Northern Tribes saw what the State of Chu was doing, they formed an alliance and formed the State
of Jin, then you have another alliance in Western China who called themselves the State of Qin. And this is how the 3 Warring States started. The
State of Qin won, and Qin Shi Huang prolaimed himself Emperor of all of the states, so the First Emperor of China wasn't even part of the Han
Then Qin Shi Huang expanded southward and conquered what is now Yunnan and Hong Kong(Hong Kong wasn't part of China initially. wiki Trieu Dynasty and
you'll see a map that shows that the Han Chinese were only about 1/5th of China initially). We were the one tribe that was able to resist their
expansionism(well, only half a tribe really).
Then the NorthEast China tribes(which used to be a country called Manchuria) invaded the Han Dynasty 1000 years later and got assimilated(the funny
thing about China is that even though all the invaders conquered the Han,
they all got assimilated, so if you're Northern or Western Chinese, you're not really Chinese at all. To call yourself Chinese would be like the
Mongolians proclaiming themselves Chinese. Heck, it would be like the Koreans calling themselves Chinese. Yeah, there are borders that separate Korea
as a country now, but suppose China were to annex Korea, and erased the borders from the map, then 1000 years later, I guess the Koreans would have no
choice but to proclaim themselves Chinese. In addition, if you were to read a novel called Legend of Condor Heroes(which is also another novel based
on historical facts, but most of the characters are fictitious), you can clearly see the Chinese viewing the Jins as the enemies.
So you can see that not one part of China was formed "legitly." It all makes sense if you think about it, there's no way a country with 56 ethnic
tribes with their own language and culture would all willingly submit themselves
to one language(which albeit unique, is impractical and sounds terrible), and ruler.
At the end of the day, there's not much difference between the U.S and China. The only difference is that the U.S did it on a new continent, whereas
China did it 2000 years ago(it's eerie how similar the shapes of the countries are now too).
