Poll: Native Americans or First Nations?

The purpose of this poll is to get an idea on what is more correct according to you.
Would you prefer to be called Native Americans, First Nations, something else, or you have don't have any opinion about it?
(I'm here talking about the NDN living in the States as you may not have the same idea about this as the ones living in Canada.)

Comments added 2011-01-24:
It looks like I did this a little bit to dry, and just making you all into a number in a statistical poll!!!!
I AM SORRY!!!! This was not the goal of this poll. Did not mean to hurt or provoke anybody!!! : embaresse
The reason for posing it was that as I'm working on a site Internet, I did not want to call you Native Americans or First Nations if this was wrong! I justed wanted to make sure I was using the correct word!

I like "NDN". It's what my grandma called herself and her family, so I'm sticking with it.

I know many of you prefer to call yourself NDN, but this is just a acronym for Indian or Native American.
But can somebody tell me what each letter symbolize?
N = ? (Native?)
D = ?
N = ?

Thanks!!!

"NDN" is like texting phonetics.

N = In

D = di

N = an

Other words

Im too new to these forums to vote but I've known a bunch of rednecks who would call themselves Native American just because they were born in America. Even if they had Indian blood they would say "I bled out all my Indian blood the first time I got a cut." So I dont like using Native American. Its too easily corrupted. I prefer American Indian. As far as I am concerned, Indian is just another word for indigenous person. There's Asian Indians, and theres American Indians. As far as I'm concerned, you could say Scottish Indian or African Indian just to indicate indigenous people of Scotland or Africa. You get the idea.

Relax! Indigenous might call themselves by their traditions, but look at their tribal ID and see the "formal" name for the tribe. I understand what you are asking, some tribes have variations of their name on the Internet, it is confusing to outsiders. That's the way it is

Goggy, you ever go to Riddu Riddu?

No, I never went to this festival. This was new for me, and in addition, in Norway!!!!!!

For info.:
Riddu Riđđu is an annual Sami music and culture festival held in Olmmáivággi (Manndalen) in the Gáivuotna (Kĺfjord) municipality in Norway. The goal of the festival is to bring forward both Sami culture and that of other indigenous peoples. Translated to English, the name of the festival is "small storm at the coast".

The 18th festival is to be held between July 15 and July 19, 2009.

(Copied from Wikipedia)

The site itself can be found here, but they have a very incomplete English translation, so for the ones who can't read Norwegian, try this one:
Google Translate

Yes, I will try to relax!!!!

Very nice!!! Yes, I would have LOVE TO GO TO THIS FESTIVAL WITH YOU? But it to far away. If I went by car, according to Maps.google, a total of 3,381 km.
A couple of years ago, we just passed by it, missing it with a few km. WHAT A SHAME!!!!

The songs of Mari Boine was also very confirtable and nice!!!
And it was VERY interesting was what she said in the interview about repression of Sami culture:
YouTube - MARI BOINE about the ban of joik
She grew up to hate their heretige, being Same was not a good thing.
Was brought up to speak Norwegien and not her own language.

I did not realize that we have done the SAME THING in Norway (my own country), as what happened in the States, even though in a lot smaller scale.
Still that does not justify how my country was treating the "Same".

I feel a shame that I did not know about this!!!!
You woke me up AmigoKumeyaay....

Will include a page for the Sami people on my Internet-pages.

(Added 2010-01-25)
And this has been done... Sami Resources
You will here find a total of 27 links to Internet-pages related to the Sami people, all verified.
Will continue to add more links in the future as I find them.

Well, I would say yes and no.
Sometimes I get to know things I better not know!
If I see video like this, and I know there is little I can do, it make me frustrated!!!
It would be easier to not know. Living in ignorance is easy.
Knowledge is a lot heavier to carry than ignorance!
