I say cancel the use of their name. 
 

Jeep should consider renaming that vehicle the “Paleface”...or better yet the “Pioneer”. 

Great idea, I never thought of that! The he%% with them!! I like the Pioneer myself!

AIM started that crap with Felony State University Florida State University back years and years ago.

 

The Seminole Nation spoke up and pointed out that the Criminoles Seminoles were in contact with the tribe and had their permission and approval for their use of the name and how they were portrayed (right down to the game opening sequence with Oceola, Renegade and the flaming spear being stabbed at the center of the field). 

 

They also suggested that AIM go back to Oklahoma and do something worthwhile on the reservations instead of meddling in affairs that didn't involve them.

Jeep has used "Pioneer" as a model name.

 

1984 - the first year of production of the "modern" Jeep Cherokee - we bought our first Jeep, a Pioneer.  Loved it, and began a 37 year relationship with a series of 6 Jeeps - Pioneer, Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, Grand Cherokee Limited, Liberty, and Wrangler Unlimited. 

 

Before I paid any extortion demand, I'd drop the "Indian" names and use Cowboy, Custer, Cavalry, Pilgrim, Pioneer, Trapper, Settler, Sodbuster, and every other frontier-related name I could think of that specifically excluded Indians.

PS:  Given the Jeep's WWII heritage, how about some WWII-related names?

The word Kia comes from the Chinese language with the first syllable Ki meaning to arise or come up out of. The second part of the word, a referes to Asia.

Interesting, since the name "Cherokee" actually is a bastardization of the Choctaw name (Cha-la-kee) for "people who live in mountains".  In the Cherokee language, they refer to themselves as "Aniyvwiya", or principal people.

As usual, the Indians just want a payoff.   I'm sure they are open to a "reasonable" settlement to go away. 

 

Always about deep pockets. It's really corporate extortion.

Ain't that the way of all of the tribal languages everywhere?  The speaker's tribe are The People, The True People, Chosen People,etc....

If I was Jeep, I would tell the Cherokee Nation to pound sand. They do not own the name. Them being upset because Jeep calls one of their cars Cherokee would be like Elizabeth II raising hell because Thomas sells English muffins. Or maybe the premiere of France getting upset with Kraft because they sell French dressing.
