  2. Where the River Flows: The Story of Misia: A Native American Superpower
    Threadmarks: Chapter 1: The Great Kingdom

    Chapter 1: The Great Kingdom It was a bright summer day in the city of Kahoquah. It was the a type of day where the warmth was cooled by a soft summer breeze that soothed the soul and refreshed all those who felt it; the type of day where merchants and vendors would gather at the markets...

    AHC: Have a state that is majority native and dominated by natives to rule over a substantial non-native population

    While there are quite a bit of threads trying to change the historical fate of the various native tribes and kingdoms of the Americas, I want to go one step further. Your challenge is to find a way for a state that culturally is undisputably Native American in government and population, rule...
  4. What Point(s) of Departure Would the Native Americans Need to Sail Across the Atlantic and Colonize Europe?

    Just a few days ago on DeviantArt, I found this map by MoshiDungo: The title of the map is What if the Americas colonised Europe? As the title explicitly implies, it shows a pre-Columbian Europe being colonized by American sailors, rather than the other way around. Unfortunately, the...

    WI Horses Exist In Both Euroasia and N. America?

    Horses evolved in the planes of the north american continent. Eventually in prehistoy (can't remember the time frame, it was before the rise of civilization but they were domesticated after) most horse breeds had migrated to Afro-eurasia, or gone extinct. What if they remained in America in...

    North American Native Empire Challenge

    This is a simple and basic challenge, find a way to have a native group reach a point where it could feasibly develop an empire on a scale similar to the Aztecs. Whether this is more of an economic scale, or military scale is entirely up to you.
  8. WI/AHC: Without European colonialism, a unified Caribbean

    Assuming no European colonialism, either through an Americapox scenario or butterflying European "discovery," is a unified Caribbean possible? Or likely? If so, which society would succeed at it? I'm specifically envisioning a native Caribbean "mare nostrum" equivalent, whereby the major...
  9. Best Scenario for Native Americans

    Dealing with what-if history for the Americas can be a pain when it comes to dealing with any scenario that results in Native Americans not being decimated by Europeans. A large amount of pre-Columbian history has been simply lost or destroyed. And we're only finding now that there were some...
  10. Native American Zionism

    When I think about history, two groups I often think about has having similar stories are Jews and Native Americans. Both groups of people built civilizations before being conquered from the outside by more advanced civilizations, who after many wars, settled their homeland until they were but a...
  11. AHC: The True Americans (Native American Wank)

    I was washing some dishes after carousing the wank section on the site and thought "I want to start an AHC thread, how hard could it be?" Here's the challenge, create a North America where Native Americans control a majority, if not all, of the landmass. There are a couple of restrictions...
  12. WI: horses don't die out in the Americas

    Proto-horses went extinct in North America about 12000 years ago - approximately the same time humans arrived on the continent. How would history have been different if the American horse hadn't gone extinct?

    What would it take for Native American civilizations to be on par with the Old World?

    What would need to happen for Native Americans to reach a point where they are on par with Europe? By this I mean that this alternate Native American civilization would have to be about as technologically advanced as Europe and be capable to establish colonies. My theory is that there would have...
  16. Maya WI: The Kaanul defeat Tikal in 695 AD

    By all reports the Kaanul (or "Snakes") empire was something quite unlike any other Classical Mayan state. It was more organized and larger (at its height ruling over a realm of some 1.75 million people, 250,000 of those city dwellers) than anything that had come before. For some centuries...
