Well, certainly anybody born there and who's parents were born there. But in regards to indigenous people which you seem to be asking (even though it has little to nothing to do with how i used the word native and the actual convo): most of the region was left uninhabited in the first centuries AD because of the north sea having free reign. It was a shitty place to reside permanently. The people who after the 3th or 4th century or so found ways to make a permanent home were never wiped out. Just invaded a lot of times. So, this: seems a gross exaggeration at best. But its not just an exaggeration imo, its blatantly wrong. Yes, most dutch partially descend from immigrants. No, these immigrants did not wipe out any indigenous population in the region that's now known as the Netherlands without evidence. If you are convinced of the opposite surely you can pinpoint these immigrants. Please do. It could very well be that the first time such a thing happened in my neck of the woods neanderthals were still involved No, it does not make it ok, just entirely irrelevant. You're talking about nomadic barbarians. If we would compare it to something close to our time the comparison of different warring native american tribes fits better than some totally foreign force obliberating the indigenous population. If you disagree please specify.
