Number of Native Americans Killed

How many Native Americans were killed?

1.85 million.

Despite the lack of precise data on the Native American population in 1492, in the book “American Indian Holocaust and Survival”, Russell Thornton estimates there were over 2 million American Indians in the US in 1492, and, in the beginning of the 20th century, this population was reduced to only 125,000 – 150,000. In other words, a total of 1.85 million Native Americans were killed between the 15th and the 19th centuries – nearly 500,000 killed during each century.

This fact is verified on : July 2, 2010.
