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.

Currently the largest tribe in the steadily-growing race known as Native American Indians. The Natives are, fortunately, making a comeback, and NOT just with casinos, dammit!
With well over 700,000 mixed- and full-blooded members, the Cherokee nation is the largest tribe in the entire United States. The "motherland" that the tribe inhabited, of which many still do, is known as the Smoky Mountains of eastern Tennessee and very western North Carolina. The white settlers and slaveowners pushed a great number of my people off their lands, of which many of us thoroughly and bitterly resent them. It was those people who made this region the South, with their new countrified, Southeast-style culture and political opinions. They also believed that the Cherokees were nothing but savages and heathens, VERY BIG misconception. Thanks to most of those people who took over the lands, now we have a mixture of lightly-educated hicks, and a bunch of arrogant, and usually racist, rednecks. What a GREAT EXCHANGE!
We have managed to hold out, however. Many of the ancestors held out in different hiding places in the mountains, and a lot of them survived the Trail of Tears. It is true that many Cherokees served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War, but it is a decision that most of them made out of fear of the Southerners. Many of them, however, ended up serving in the Union Indian Brigade, which fought out in the Trans-Mississippi Theatre, coming from Oklahoma and Kansas, were most of the Natives had been exiled to from their eastern homelands. The Cherokee are a strong people, they served the nation and the settlers even as their own rights and lands were gradually being taken from them, and they deserve a lot of respect, and even tribute, in return.
Long Live The Mighty Cherokee!

a word that only an (american) Indian can understand. things we do are "indigenous" because they are down-to-earth and natural with our culture. silence, meditating, being one with nature, listening to our surroundings.

basically having the traits that an Indian would have, but being pridefull when doing them. doing natural, native things, either out of curiousity or to represent our Native history. the epitomy of being "down-2-earth" or others may say "down-ass"

similar to the N word, you must be Indian to fully understand the word Indigenous or use it in the proper context.
