Centuries before the Past Age, during the European colonization of the Americas, the majority of the indigenous population was wiped out, and the survivors were forced to live on reservations by technically superior invaders. This country of colonist descendants was named, in the Past Age, the USA – and it became the most powerful nation on the world stage, which is why it was represented to a higher degree in the UG. By the time of the blossoming of the Past Age, when democracy and humanism were developed, the indigenous Native Americans had been almost completely wiped off the face of the Earth, and their traces remained only as history.
This resurrection of an almost vanished race was quite a surprise for the historians and anthropologists of the United Governments. It seemed unbelievable, but representatives of the Native American population had managed not only to survive the Reset, but decades later grouped together to form the prosperous highly-civilized society in the former North America (now East America) - the Indian Alliance. By 132 A.R. their descendants, the "Natives", dominate over the massive, relatively prosperous territories from the East coast to the borders of the Great Desert area.
The Natives believe that during the Reset, the Gods destroyed the invasive civilization of the Past Age to save their ancestors and bring them to the Celestial World, and that their ancestors who deserved it were taken to that world. And they believe that those who have remained on Earth should live with respect for the traditions of the tribes, so that they can earn the right to be invited to the land of Gods. Based on that principle, most of the tribes of Natives treat the majority of palefaces (which they call Survivors) as wild animals, barring them from the settlements of Natives. Beyond that, those rare palefaces who are lucky enough to find home or refuge within the territories of the Indian Alliance should keep in mind that possession of firearms is allowed for Natives only.
