Hi, when you wrote America it is the whole continent or only USA?
My question is I'm cant respond for only USA maybe they have the data for the languages on his country.
Now for the continent no we dont how many langagues existed before the contact, in reality we dont know how many native americans lived here. Some more famous languages there are dictionaries. To show some examples.

Quechua.
