Did Indian tribes fight over territory while at the same time believing the land didn't belong to anyone?

    so it might seem, however it one carefully reviews the history of Native American tribes it actuate appears that they fought more over areas of resources than actual land.,

    Not ALL First Nations believed the same things. It is mildly raciest of you to assume Europeans are different but ALL First Nations were identical.

    Something like that. Each people would have a "range" that they moved about in. Some would guard those areas, fighting if they needed to. However, no-one actually "owned" the land in their estimation.

    But it did, it belonged to the tribe.

    Indians who practiced agriculture, like the Hopi and the tribes of the Northeast, did have private plots of farmland, but they belonged to families. The territory however was still held by the tribe.

    The concept of ownership to the native American was centered around what you could physically posses. What you could pick up and walk away with, so to speak. Land doesnt fall into that category. Neither does rivers, mountains, the sky, etc.

    What those natives were fighting for was hunting rights. Animals you can own, the ground they graze on not so much.

    yes they did. Before colonists got here, they were busy killing each other.

    Pretty much. They also ignored any vikingc

    armor found or Anglo Saxon weapons in caves. Especially if frozen.

    The "natives" occupied America, but certainly were not here first, nor did they bring it civilization, nor were foundong forefathers.

    You might as well pretend whites were not first in Africa to set up mining camps.

    Tribes were fighting, warring, raping, murdering, stealing from each others tribes, but when the white tribes did the same thing they acted like it was different, like the white tribes didn't belong. Racism.
