Think about it. The Indians were still a stone age culture vs Europeans with locomotives and technology. (By the end of the era in the 1800s.) In this case, American Indian tribes met these vastly stronger European tribes.
These Europeans that you speak of would have all died if the Indians did not help them initially (i.e, food, shelter from cold) despite any forms of technology they had which was rudimentary at best.

As far as the Spanish, they were shown hospitality and not killed right away by the Aztecs because they thought the Spanish men riding on beast they never seen (horses) were the returning "bearded white man" (Quetzalcoatl) that was said to have help establish the Mayan civilization.


By 1750, the technology used in a British Man of War ship with perhaps 60 cannons or more, was not just rudimentary technology compared to Indians with birch-bark canoes. The technology available to a few early settlers like the Pilgrims or puritans or a few Spanish soldiers was not nearly as significant as the maritime technology and industrial technology over the horizon that over the long run assured European conquest.

This Cracked article explains the truth about why the Native Americans lost their land to White settlers. It's something we haven't been told.
