I know, I know…. It’s not politically correct to call the original inhabitants of North America and their descendants “Indians” anymore… They’re “First Nation’s Peoples”. But, keeping in mind the historical context of the campaign and whatnot, that is what they WERE probably called at the time (if not something worse..). I guess I could call them Algonquians or Iroquois or Huron, or whatever – actually that’s what I’d probably prefer to do… but I have no idea which these particular warriors are… and if I did some smart alec would point out that the blanket colours or hairstyles or whatever were wrong... So for now they remain generic "'Indians". Indeed, they will likely be used as all three, and more, at one point or other in their lifetime….
