Yeah, that term came up on another board recently. I had never heard of that term before. I don't care for it that much, but it is better than "Native American"...at least it makes sense, as modern Indians arose at least partly from Paleoindians, which were the first humans to migrate here. All men migrated to this country - man did not originate in this hemisphere, and is a (relative) latecomer here, so no man is "native", but the Indians were at least first. Funny thing is a lot of people think people are native to North America and horses aren't, when it is actually just the opposite. Man migrated here, but horses evolved here, so are truly native, even though they became extinct here till they were reintroduced. Just my play on things...
