Assumptions are always fraught.  Your assumption about the "meaning" of
Indian Red is simply wrong.  Indian red is named for a lateritic soil in
India.  It isn't racist, and I have American Indian friends who have
expressed disappointment at the historical facts.  They also prefer
"American Indian" to "Native American."  So, what to do???
