A2: SAY “NATIVE AMERICAN”



Their term is inaccurate – anyone born in the us is a native American

Giago 07 Nieman Fellow at Harvard in the Class of 1991 and founder of The Lakota Times and Indian Country Today newspapers. He founded and was the first president of the Native American Journalists Association

(Tim, “The Name "Indian" and Political Correctness”, Huffington Post, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/tim-giago/the-name-indian-and-polit_1_b_67593.html SW)



The local daily newspaper in Rapid City, SD decided to drop the use of the word "Indian" and replace it with "Native American." I believe they did so when they, with unintended fanfare, used a headline that highlighted the word "Indian" when describing the new education director for the Rapid City Schools. A howl went up in the Indian community, but the howl was less about political correctness than about the bad usage of the name in that particular context. I believe it is a policy that needs to be reconsidered because anyone born in the United States of America is a Native American, but they are not American Indians.
