Pre-contact

Pre-contact refers to the time before European traders and settlers. The time frames of “pre-contact” and “post-contact” were traditionally referred to as prehistoric and historic. Those words implied that prior to European contact the New World had no history, which is untrue. Indigenous peoples kept and passed down meticulous oral accounts of their tribal histories.
