I think you have the Cherokee listed twiceBig smile beyond that I voted for the Maya simply because your question is so general as to be answerable in many ways.

I agree, the Maya definately had the strongest mathematical knowledge.
 
I'm going to vote Zapotec. they lived on mountaintops in a desert region, they must have been really fit to walk up hills all day in that heat.

 From a chronological perspective you would have to say currently  the Navajo Nation on the basis that they are the largest, most educated, and economically stable today!

I vote for the Aztecs, the Mayans despites being one of the oldest mesoamerican cultures, did not evolved into an unified empire. Mainly divided on regional powers or city states. Aztecs managed to become an empire after being placed into a hostile terrain and still suceed to gain land from the Lake Texococo, whils the Mayan cities were literally eaten by the jungles.
I would like to request as well , propably to reformulate the question for this topic: Stronges Native Americans ?
The most cultural developed,
the largest empire ?
the more bellicous group ?

Regards

I vote for the following tribes:
 
Mapuches. They weren't defeated by the Spaniards at all. I believe they were the best warriors of all because they copied European tactics. The only Ephic Poem written in the Americas to honour natives, "La Araucana" of Alonzo de Ercilla, is dedicated to this people, also known as the Araucanians. And his greatest military heroe was Lautaro.
 
Jibaros. They were not conquered either, and the reduced heads of the one that tried are still exhibit in museums.
 
However, there are many valient tribes that were never conquered and that still exist as a people today.

You bet. They are from my country, Chile and also of Argentina. We are proud of them. They were so brave that destroyed whole towns and captured many colones and forced the Spaniards to back up from theirs territories. And the war lasted 400 years, and continued after the Spaniard leave. Only in 1881 they were subjugated by the Chilean and Argentinean armies. They are one million strong but most of the populations of Chile and Argentina (55 millions) have at least one drop of theirs ancestry.

The case of the Amazonian indians is very curious, too. The first time a Spaniard received a dart from an Amazonian bowpipe (servatana) the Spaniards laugh a lot, because they though the dart was so innofensive. Even the guy that received the dark laugh. Ten minutes later he was dead. I have seen the reduced heads of Jibaroes at museums. Most are from Native Americans, but some where of white men. It call my attention one of a German explorer that look so alive, only that of the size of a small cup.
