This is a very random question but, with some of the things that my husbands co-workers say sometimes, it makes me wonder what other people around me think...Since some of the things they say are so adorably clueless lol :) My question is...

--What is honestly your FIRST thought when you hear the words "Native American" or "Indian" or when you meet someone who IS Indian?--

For me, I honestly don't think anything..I have no thought about it..Probably because my husband is Indian...Born and raised on a reservation...

My husbands co-workers are hilarious..Some call him Chief lol, others ask why his hair isn't long, some ask why he isn't as "dark as the Indians in the movies" lol-which is funny because he actually is, he gets asked if he can use peyote, and asked if he can give Indian names to people...all kinds of wierd questions...lol...I think it's kind of funny :)

My first thought is no different with any nationality I meet. I get to know someone, nationality never is a thought for me. We have all different nationalities in our family. =)

I don't have a thought when meeting them or hearing the word really. My sister once had a story she was telling and said Indian and we were like huh? She said the "ho ho ho" kind not the "kaboom!" kind. I know it is mean, but the story made sense afterwards.

Unless there is current topic in the conversation, I don't really think of anything.

I had to sit and read this a couple of times before I got it lol.

For "ho ho ho" I couldn't think of anything other than Santa Claus.  Duh, I'm dumb. lol.
