This timeline provides short overviews of the major time periods after European contact and settlement. Many of these time periods can be defined in different ways, so don’t be surprised if you see some differences between the definitions and time ranges that we give and those you may see elsewhere. Rather than one way being right and the other way being wrong, these differences reflect the various events that different researchers highlight as important.
