    Actually, yes. Germanic folks are native to North America. Iceland is a North American land, but it was discovered by Celts from the Faroe Islands, likewise which earlier became wholly Germanic. In the same fashion, Greenland and Newfoundland were settled as an expansion of Icelandic population, until the Eskimos and Indians committed genocide against them. When Denmark took Greenland and England took Newfoundland, it revived Germanic lebensraum, since all the Scandinavian lands were ruled by Cnut the Great of England at the time when Greenland and Vinland were settled. Iceland, like the Faroes, was settled earlier in the time of Alfred the Great.

    Italian navigators get too much credit, along with the focus of the world on Latin America as some kind of "happening" place. The truth is, that Latins owe their independence to Germanics, since America was the first to achieve it--admittedly, with the sagas as inspiration.

    I must take issue regarding your comment about Iceland. It is incorrect to state that Iceland is a "North American land". It is located in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and thus partly in North America and partly in Europe and culturally it belongs only to Europe.

    Iceland is closer to the North American Shelf then the European but is considered part of Europe for historical & cultural reasons. It was uninhabited when settled by the Norse/Celts. The Azores & Canary Islands are also considered part of Europe though the latter are much closer to Africa.

    As for the thread title, "Do Europeans Have Claim to North America?" the logical answer is YES! It is our's by conquest. Most of what we took from defeated tribes was land those tribes acquired by committing genocide against other tribes. The Cherokees depopulated much of what is the South & conducted a flourishing slave trade in American Indians who were shipped out via Charleston along the Eastern Seaboard of America & the Caribbean. There was the Beaver Wars in the which the Iroquois turned much of what is now the north central US into a hunting preserve. We gained North America through armed conquest which is how every territory was acquired by every nation. But we are losing it through a new type of conquest one based on political propositions & demographics.
