Yes, for instance three of my relatives who are descendents of indigenous people refer to themselves as Indians, as did my friend John Trudell, spokesperson of the American Indian Movement (AIM) that took over Alcatraz. My relatives do not like the term Native American, so I do not use that term, but so called enlightened people say using the term Indian makes me sound racially insensitive and culturally ignorant.
