“Indian” term dying out?

Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

In “American Indian” vs. “Native American” I made the case that “Indians” is the preferred term for Indians. In response, Oscar Morales wrote:Sorry, Rob Schmidt, not buying your diatribe/screed.

Outmoded terminology may be historically logged in official gov’t records, but that does not make it right. Do you really think the 1996-2006 Congress or that that the 2001-2008 Executive cared a whit about correcting outdated terminology? That they had any concern at all?
