A confusing term and increasingly politically correct term that is legally undefined, but generally refers to the indigenous peoples (the "first peoples") of Canada. The use of the term Native American is uncommon in Canada; though technically correct (as Canada is part of the North American continent), Native American generally refers more specifically to indigenous peoples of the United States. Native Canadian is not commonly used, but terms such as natives and autochthones (Canadian French) are.

Pickaninny refers to oft-depicted physical stereotypes of young African slave or African American children: bulging eyes, unkempt hair, red lips and wide mouth into which they stuffed large slices of watermelon.

Today, use of the term by persons of any race in English speaking countries is seen as distasteful, though at one time it was used within African American families to refer to their children in an affectionate manner. Versions of the word are still used in some pidgin dialects, including Caribbean English, where it usually means "child" or "young'un"
