The indigenous people of the Americas are referred to as Native Americans, First Nation, Aboriginals, Amerindians, or Indians. Much later, European colonization brought many Europeans to the Americas. In North America, the biggest racial group are White Americans, followed by Latino Americans (also known as Hispanics), and African Americans. Native Americas make up less than one percent of the total population. In order of size, immigration from European countries includes Germany, Ireland, England, Italy, Poland, and France. In Central and South America, Europeans came mainly from Spain and Portugal. The mixture of European and Aboriginal is known as Mestizo which form the majority of the population today, while indigenous populations are a minority. Africans were brought to the Americas as slaves during European colonization. Today they are found mainly in the south of the USA and the Caribbean.
