Did native Americans built villages near water so they didnt have to travel solely by land?

That and they needed a source of water so they can drink. Also animals really need water, so they can be trapped and hunted, and then killed to eat.

In fact, you will find many of the key cities of all civilizations located very close to good water supplies.
