A racially offensive epithet used towards Native Americans. However, Columbus was wrong, this racial slur was in fact meant for inhabitants of India and has now been recently claimed at the University of Washington.

Modern equivalent of "Nigga", except its used to refer to Indians who, thanks to Kumar, are finally in mainstream American culture.

Can be used in reference to other people who are "down with the brown". This EVEN includes white people, as long as they're tight with some Indians.
"Yo what up my injun!"

A casual American or Canadian corruption of the term "Indian", referring to Native Americans. The earliest Europeans thought they had landed in India and applied "Indian" to the indigenous population. "Injun" more commonly heard during a period when the term "Indian" was used, often pronounced in later years only by children. Not typically meant as derogatory, as American "Indians" came to be admired during the latter period of common usage. Rarely used today, if so used in a typically light-hearted if politically-incorrect fashion. Can be derogatory given intent and inflection.
Uh-oh, we are entering Injun country!

Injun, is not a racial or ethnic slur as people want it to be.

It was a convention of the word indigenious which describes a group of people that inhabit a geographical area.
Are you Injun? Meaning: Are you native?
