Native Americans

This week we learned about the Native Americans. We were reminded that Columbus called them Indians because he thought they were in the Indes. Some people now call them American Indians while others say Native Americans since they were the first people in our country. We had a decision maker decide that our class will say Native Americans. He made his decision by asking other people what they thought. His reasoning at the end was that we should not use the word Indians because Columbus was wrong.
