  1. A Domesticated Coyotes

    I was watching a documentary about the rise of Eastern Coyotes the other day, and it got me wondering about the threads here that discussing domesticating OTL wild animals. So what if at some point Pre Columbian tribes could have domesticated Coyotes in a manner similar to the wolf in Eurasia.

    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...
  3. If Native Americans developed Iron and Steel, what would their Armor look like?

    Hypothetical: If native americans (and lets say mesoamericans and south americans as well) had developed iron and steel metallurgy on their own, what would their weapons and armor look like? (This is a question mainly for the After the End mod for Crusader Kings 2)

    Tribal Assembly of Elder Chieftains: Third(ish) Branch of the American Legislative

    I've had an idea floating around in my head for some time about the possibility of the Founding Fathers adopting a Tricameral Legislature, and how such a branch would function and what roles it would have. I want to have a discussion about it without regard to the plausibility of it's enactment...

    WI Native Americans Helped the Nazis?

    I recently posted a thread asking why Native Americans never developed ironworking independently. Now I'd like to ask: what if they did?

  8. Why did Native Americans never develop ironworking?

    As far as I know, Native Americans never independently developed ironworking. Why is that?
  9. WI: The 1782 French proposal for the Treaty of Paris is accepted

    For the purposes of this scenario, let's suppose that the United States is in a troublesome position at this point in the American Revolutionary War (how it comes to be in this position is up to discussion). The Thirteen Colonies are under such stress that they are willing to accept any treaty...
  10. Highest possible Native American population in North America?

    As we all know, North America has a very small amount of native americans, only adding up to around 1% of the US population, and about 5% of the Canadian population. But how could this have been changed? What would you need to have large and thriving Native populations today, and maybe even...

  14. 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...

    Despite being heavily associated with the American Southwest, the Navajo and Apache are believed to have been originally from Northwestern Canada and Eastern Alaska. What if they'd stayed there?

    AHC: Least Racist Colonialism Possible

    With any pre-20th century pod you want, make the European colonial empires as equal as possible to their nonwhite subjects. I imagine that we'd need to limit the slave trade incredibly, to prevent the association of black people with chattel slavery. Not quite sure what to do about the natives...

    A Pre-Columbian North American Timeline Planning Thread
