    I can't speak for the American Indian experience, but imho it is important to distinguish between North American Indians and South American Indians.

    But what do I know. I'm just a pasty white boy honkey, or so I am told.

    And another thing,

    Why Should someone choose to get offended when someone refers to them with a slur?

    If they sugar coat things, then you really don't know what they mean to say. If you are really concerned with the use of slurs I think pity would be more appropriate than anger. To some people the use of slurs mix like Indians and alcohol, and if that offends you well then I got news for you- historically Indians don't do well mixed with alcohol, but then again no heritage does.

    Montana Jim, I don't know your nationality but I'm sure there are other names for it you might have a problem with. Sometimes people try to change history by re-inventing meanings of words. Like "Red neck". It was a derogatory term until a country song was recorded saying "Red neck" was just a working man. NO, wrong.
    I believe "First Nation" fits way better than "Indian, Injun, Redman, and the rest. It also speaks poorly to the terms given for things that are not true. Indian giver, Indian tobacco, and Indian summer.
