"I" IS NOT FOR INDIAN:

Mitten, Secretary, AILA Over the years, the most frequently asked questions by librarians concerning books on Native Americans have centered around the ideas of "How can I personally tell good books on Indians from bad? " and "Where can I find reliable reviews? ". Perhaps even more difficult is the question of being able to judge as librarians whether a book is harmful or not. Add to this lack of education the very pervasive and subtle dehumanizing stereotypes that are ingrained as part of American popular culture, and you've got a lot to overcome before you can identify these things in children's books.

Results show that the person it belonged to was related to the ancestors of present-day Asians and Native Americans. The results are published in the journal PNAS. Humans who looked broadly like present-day people started to appear in the fossil record of Eurasia between 40,000 and 50,000 years ago.

    Hey Everyone, I don't get over here to pearltrees as often as I wish I could. Busy life and all. When I've come around lately, I've found things have changed. If you're trying to join the team and I have not clicked you, my apologies! I've been clicking around in here this morning, trying to figure out how things work now. I hope I did it right. ~Best Regards; HG

    I think 'Indians' and 'Indies' today are acceped as separate terms, and the difference is clear, no meter of that mistake in the past. Personaly, I like term 'Indians'. Thise 'Native American' sounds somehow too general...it does not carry some mark of authentic culture or civilization which Indians for surely were. Is there other term which Indians use for themselfs as we odhers use 'Indians'?

    Being from the South, we still often use the term "Indians". What I've been told is that when the boats landed on what is now called American Soil, they thought they were in India. Therefore they started calling the Native people "Indians". Of course, this was wrong but it stuck. Now, in the days of Political Correctness, the word Indian is no longer acceptable and has been replaced by Native Americans. My great grandmother was 100% "Indian" or Native; and the term has never bothered me. But I'm not full blood Native so not sure if it is considered an insult nowdays.
