Sibermom, I googled a bit and found this 2015 article in Native American Times. According to this article, at least, the term "Indian" is acceptable to Native Americans. I love the last paragraph:Sibermom65 wrote:And yes, they are Indians in the story. Anyone ever hear of the French and Native American Wars or of the First Nation uprisings in the West? It's part of balancing historical accuracy with political correctness. Unfortunately in today's society, the former is often thrown out in the name of the latter.

This PBS article concurs, and also contains additional interesting information on the subject. Although dated 2006, it was written long after the presumed switch from "Indian" to "Native American" was made:
