I have started a fantasy story based on 1861 Nevada territory and the massive corruption coming with the silver and gold mining fever. Even if is a fantastic story about a curse and snake zombies. I need a serious believable background to make it immersive. But also I don’t want to use the slurs they used against the natives. So I need something to use.
Is Indian offensive?
Is Native American offensive?
If they are what word should I use?
I don’t want to use the same only Tribe name over and over again.
