Hop history is a bit twisty. Brewers Gold is probably the only native American hop under cultivation and East Kent Goldings is Canadian! Hallertauer originated in Oregon, but might be from German stock. Perle was developed in Germany from American stock (Northern Brewer), etc. Almost all commercial Japanese hops are American- English crosses.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
