Some 13,000 years ago, people from North-East Asia reached and populated North America. The present native American Indians are their descendents.
In 16th century, Euopeans invaded the Americas and all but destroyed the native people and their culture. (I wonder why no one calls it a genocide.)
Present day. China dominates the world economy. Everything that is sold in USA and Europe is made in China. China may actually take over the mantle of the largest economy from USA. The people of North-East Asia take what was originally theirs.
