Maybe now there'd be modern nations whose roots lie in the Cree, Lakota, Ojibwe, and similar peoples. Who is to say whether such a scenario would have been better or worse for the nations as a whole. Certainly it would have been better for the natives.
I don't disagree with you but that's not human nature. Indistinctly humans do not cooperate with foreign peoples.
