X BS: Indian or Native American? (76* d) RE: BS: Indian or Native American? 19 Mar 03


Everyone born in America is a Native American. Everyone who is born in the county of India is an Indian. Everyone who is born of Indian descent in American is an American Indian. As for the word Aborigine…. In Austral, the usage of that word is under debate. We are the "American Indigenous People/Person," if you must group us together. Most tribal names, the one we use to call our selves, almost always translates to 'The People" or "The Humans." You can call us that but "Indigenous People" will work fine, it's close to what we've been calling or selves for 40,000 years.

Thank you for asking.

Oh, by the way...The real name of the "Anasazi" is Hum-Ma-Ha. (Not to be confused with "Yo-Mama.") ;o)
