Do you use the word "Indian" to refer to people not from India?
Native American until I'm talking about a specific tribe.
I know it is old school, and I am often corrected, But I refer to native Americans as Indians and Asians ad orientals. I admit I am struggling with that. My 22 year old daughter corrects me. It's hard to teach and old dog new tricks. 😜
I call them by their tribe name whenever possible, otherwise Native American.
I use the names American Indian and Native American interchangeably. I don't see any issue with it and neither do most of the native Americans that I meet.
Tee pees or towel heads

People from Indiana
They are native Americans.
I don't agree, each people have a name that existed before America was a place.
Native Americans aren't from India. Calling them Indian is stupid.
There's a reason why they are also called indians.
That reason being that Christopher Columbus was a bloody idiot.
Brandon, calling them anything other than by their tribe is lazy. They are not Indians, they are not Native Americans.
They are Haita, Creek, Cherokee, and a hundred other tribal names.
So if I'm referring to all Native Americans in general, I have to name every single tribe?
No, but how often is that just a generalization because people don't know, or don't care to learn the tribes true name?
