(This blog is dominated by British America women in colonies along the Atlantic seaboard. During the 17C, there were Native American women within the borders of what is now the USA, as well as other female European colonists.)

16C Europeans Imagine American Women
Some suggest Hieronymus Bosch's (c. 1450−1516) birds, animals, plants, and nude human beings in this segment of The Garden of Earthly Delights might be inspired by the early images brought back to Europe by the early travelers to America newly opened by the Spanish at that time. This work was done about 1500. Too much speculation for me.
