If you don't believe the Americans stole this land then committed genocide against the American Indians, how exactly would you describe what took place, and how do you justify it now?

Nope, Vikings killed off natives.
The first settlement was not in the 800s. There was evidence of other peoples already there that probably made it there from north America. Vikings came and killed everyone who was there.
There is evidence that Icelandic DNA has mitochondrial DNA from native americans. Meaning they on their raids captured natives already there and used them for breeding.
Genetics doesnt lie. Icelanders have native genes that are unique in that they are not shared by Natives of the Americas, which would indicate that a native population existed and was absorbed.

I think they burned up all their resources making those stone heads and went extinct which was why it was morbidly humorous not to mention the whole island thing. lol
