Someone should have a team called the Hactivists. The mascot would be a white dude sitting on a pile of money and holding a dreamcatcher in one hand and a burning copy of the Constitution in the other.

They call Indians Aboriginals in Canada. Fucking hosers.

"Indians" isn't accurate obviously but it's what people have settled on, generally, in the absence of calling by tribe name. I guess it's sort of accurate if you're talking about the "west indies," which was itself a mistake in naming, and then you would need to say Indiens. I guess. Some SJW will be along shortly to advise us that that's raaaaacist. Anyway, aboriginal or first nations is not accurate either since people came here in waves of population groups, from all different places, for thousands of years, with later waves of people displacing the earlier aboriginal first nations.

A third of the american Indian genome is European, the rest is Asian.

If there were ever aboriginals here, they disappeared a long time ago.

Not sure about that 1/3 2/3 thing. Probably varies wildly from tribe to tribe, continent to continent. Good evidence that Paleolithic Yurps arrived here very early but may have been wiped by climate change/other paleos. Tribes in NE claim euro influence/heritage which may show up in their language and, if true, is likely due to encounters with Vikings.

You call them Indians, we call them First Nations.
