What enabled europeans to conquer native North Americans?

One main reason that Native Americans were being so rapidly conquered was that the they had not built up any immunities to the diseases that the European settlers had brought with them. These diseases spread wildly and killed many native populations very quickly. Another factor was that most Native American tribes did not believe that land could be owned privately, as in their cultures they had always shared the land as a community resource.
