Ratings and Reviews
Great content, poor title.
I would have rated this magazine 5 stars if the title didn't refer to Native Americans as Indians. We are not from India, and I refuse to be categorized as such; I'm sure someone of European ancestry wouldn't appreciate being called Indian, so I don't understand why we're still using an uneducated term from the 1700's to classify the natives of the Americas. Besides that fact, the content in this magazine is phenomenal and worth 5 stars, but the constant reference of "Indians" brings it down to 4 stars.
This is one of the most beautiful and informative magazines I have ever read. The articles are well written and very diverse in content. I look forward to each and every issue with great anticipation. Thank you for a wonderful magazine.
Coming from Taino bloodlines, I find the title offensive. Perhaps Natives would better suit the profiles and content. Besides that it's a great magazine, very joyful to read.
