Polaris - Indian Motorcycles

I'm a white British rider living in the US. I was hoping for some advice regarding the Indian Motorcycle company. I was considering buying one of their motorcycles but I am concerned by the name and the logo. I am gaining little or no insight online when I search for articles that show if this is considered offensive or if the Polaris company works or consults with Native Americans. The only feedback I can see is from angry right-wing white people shouting about being PC and how they consider it non-offensive. Do you have any idea where I could gain some insight on this issue?

Indian motorcycles

Hey Polaris, I'm not indigenous, but I have a friend who is and he rides an Indian. Perhaps someone who is indigenous could give you their opinion.
