They never really tried to enslave the Native Americans. Th Spanish did use Native Americans as slaves in mines and missions. The African slave trade solved all labor problems.

When did native americans first exist?

Not exactly. For them there was no difference between the lands they left behind (modern Asia) and the lands they moved into, since they were all one continuous land mass.Imagine yourself 20,000 years ago living in a hunting band in the area that is now Panama. Your hunting band moves south-east to follow the animals you are hunting; you keep following those animals, making new camps and finding fresh water sources as you go. Eventually you will be in South America - but nothing is any different to the place you started from, so it would not seem like you have discovered new land. There's just a lot of it - and no humans are there already.That's exactly how it was for those Neolithic hunters following game animals into the Americas.

Historians agree that the Native American population of about 145 million in the Americas was systematically and intentionally destroyed by Europeans?

The opinion is pretty much split down the middle and hinges on whether or not there was intent. First of all this number is controversial and varies amongst historians and critics. The numbers of deaths are also estimated from a time span of centuries with deaths attributed to a variety of causes. Many of the deaths can be attributed to disease which would be classified as death by natural causes. However, European Americans soon became aware of the lack of immunity to common diseases the natives had. There have been accusations that blankets that had been infected with smallpox were deliberately given to Native Americans. If you add to that the brutality of the Indian Wars, disease and famine as well as lives lost on the "Trial of Tears", many causes can be attributed to the deaths.
