Early European explorers thought they were in India when they landed in North America, so they called the original inhabitants "Indians."

First Nations people identify themselves by the nation to which they belong, for example, Mohawk, Cree, Oneida, and so on.

interesting fact

People everywhere, including First Nations, have their own creation beliefs. Each First Nation has its own creation beliefs, told in the form of a story of their ancestors. The Iroquois creation story often includes elements of the earth being formed on the turtle’s back with animals and all other creatures providing further guidance when Sky Woman gives birth to First Woman. While creation beliefs may sound unlikely or silly, to put things in perspective, so does the idea of a person walking on water, coming back from the dead or parting the Red Sea.
