I'm not sure about the United States, but I believe indigenous people are still commonly referred to as Native Americans.
Didnt mean to rustle any talons here. My post was more geared towards the overall confusion that seemed to be going on. Your post was great about indigenous canadians. My point was what hemsky pointed out. Political correctness to say native americans when as youve seen in this thread anyone born in america could kinda claim theyre a native american.
If this thread was titled indigenous aboriginals it would have probably saved a lot of bickering as it could encompass all north american indigenous people
