Indians is still a misnomer, and quite honestly, offensive to some people of that descent.
I find the term Native Americans offensive.
I don't use the term.
IIRC, in polls, most prefer either Indians or more specifically their own tribe name.
I don't remember the tribe name or I would have used it.
The 2006 Associated Press Stylebook recommends use of the term American Indian and reserves Native American only for direct quotations and names of organizations.
cording to the US Census Bureau, as of 1995 50% preferred "American Indian", 37% "Native American", and the remainder preferred other terms or had no preference
