Just a thought,
I wouldn't write off the possibility of America's colonization really being a concerted effort by all of Europe rather than separate nations acting
independently. Consider that France, Spain, and Portugal were all countries heavily influenced by the Catholic Church. And really, who knows what the
true relationship was between the Northern monarchs and the Catholic monarchs... some had relatives on both sides. The narrative that it was
independent countries without a common plan is not a certainty in my mind.
Look at the end result, it played out like a unified takeover of the Western hemisphere by Europe.
Also, while playing the blame game and holding grudges helps noone- downplaying the losses by Native Americans isn't any more productive.
