There's nothing "Native"about "Native Americans"

I don’t get replacing "Indians" with “Native Americans.”

Yes, I know that the legends of a lot of tribes say that they were created here, but holy heck, are we going to go on that testimony now? Then we should refer to Christians as Edenintes, because that’s where they believe they were created, right? No? Then what makes a religion true and the other false, from the outside? Oh, yeah, because one is exotic and stuff. In fact, from a scientific point of view we have more than enough proof that the people’s Europeans found in the Americas didn’t evolve there, weren’t created there, and weren’t the first ones there. I.e. they displaced other people. Words And Meanings | According To Hoyt
