What about the Cleveland Indians? Must they now become the Cleveland Native Americans? Perhaps Americans from India should sue forcing these native Americans to drop "stealing" that term; no more Bureau of Indian Affairs!
    Do you really want to flaunt the white man's ignorance by highlighting the sheer stupidity that people still call Native Americans "Indians"?

    The Redskins should change their name. It really isn't a great team name. They have nothing to gain by keeping it.

    Also, I would like the city to change their name to Washington, District of Honduras.

    If you wanna keep the name, better gather some shiny beads.

    Worked in the 1860's, why not give it another whirl? Couldn't hurt.


    I'm joking ... Obviously.

    I work with several tribal counselors, relatives of a tribal chief, and people that work at the walk-in center. They refer to themselves by their specific tribe, but as a general term...Indian. They also refer to themselves using a common Canadian descriptor..."first people".

    During a multicultural presentation a few years back a young fresh faced masters student nervously asked one of the panel members "I dont want to be inappropriate...but...Im not sure...what to call you..." His response...well...I prefer 'Joe'....
