The newcomers borrowed names from hundreds of Native tribes and languages they encountered across the continents. Many of these words are so thoroughly incorporated into American English and other contemporary languages that people aren't aware of their origins. Place names, including half of the 50 U.S. states, were taken from Native Americans Native tribes, in their diversity, did not have a uniform approach to enslavement (given Americans' propensity to collapse all Native people together, this bears reiterating) Somebody from South Africa, white or black, who came to America and subsequently gained citizenship would still be referred to as being South African. This also stands true of anybody who came from Africa and did the same.
