I think that American Indians are one of the coolest people on the planet

#1
With that in mind, are we sure that the Eskimo isn't the true Native American?

P.S. my very liberal friend just told me that we aren't using the term 'Native American' commonly any more. It's back to just 'indian'. Anyone know anything about that?

American indians are a myth. Just like unicorns, escimos and dinosaures.

We use both terms. They did have very interesting cultures before Christianity messed it up.

I refuse to use the term Indian. It's actually stupid - white people landed here and thought they hit India and said "HEY LOOK! Indians!" and the name stuck. Natives or Aboriginals are the terms I generally use.

They're just people, and I suspect they have the same mixture of cool people and f*cking tools as any other ethnic group.

Eskimos and dinosaurs exist, never heard of these escimos and dinosaures however.


Exarcly. I didn't mention those horrible twisted creatures you mentioned now.

I think that both the terms 'Indians' and 'Native American' are wrong. Because although they are of Mongoloid stock, they are not Indians, and they were not native to America.

I don't know what I'd call them, "red people" maybe?

Thanks! All 1/16 of me is happy.

Now you might not be impressed by 1/16, but it's important to my family history. You see, one of my ancestors came to America. He married a Cherokee woman and lived with the tribe. Then the Trail of Tears happened, and he was given the choice of going back to New England or walking the Trail with his family. He chose to walk the Trail of Tears. And that's how my mom's side of the family got to the Midwest. Neat, right?

I find both terms offensive. I use native/aboriginal/First Nations, unless I know the name of the specific group, ie Mi'kmaq, Cree, Maliseet, etc.

Also, it's better to use Inuit instead of eskimo.

On another note, I really should find out how much Mi'kmaq I have in my blood.

I don't think that's how the term Indian came to be.

Christopher Columbus wrote in his journal that he met a people "in dios" which translates to "in god" in Spanish. So it's a respectable term...although I don't use it, I just say natives. NOT native americans though, cause why would they want to be labeled by the people that took their land?

They're labeled by the continent they live on.

They live on their land which they called what they wanted. I don't believe they called it America. Didn't it originate from the settlers?

Amerigo Vespucci yes. They are called Indians because people thought they hit India when they really hit America. Plain and simple.

I rather doubt that. Unless you were royal, you didn't get to name new lands using your first name back then.

Maybe so. All I know was that one guy that was with was called Amerigo Vespucci. No idea who he was however.

I've never heard of said journal, but I'm from Canada so I don't get edumacated on C.C.'s exploits...in fact I think of Canadian Club whiskey before I think of Christopher Columbus for those initials.
Sounds like a crock though; they really were looking for India, it would have been logical that they called the people Indians, just not anymore.
