The 2022 International History Olympiad will feature an exam on the history of North American first nations. This exam will consist of 75 multiple choice questions and last 25 minutes. It will feature 25 questions each on the original inhabitants of Canada, the USA (not including Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and other outlying territories), and Mexico.

However, this Exam will not feature questions on people who do not identify as First Nations in the 21st century (i.e. otherwise White descendants of Pocahontas, or people who are certainly in part of Aztec, Mayan, or other Native Mexican origin, but who do not specifically consider themselves to be Indigenous Mexican).
