I hear you....but not much different than 'Pontiac'....an Indian chief and the Pontiac emblem is an Indian arrow.

When you think about it, these were very respectful homages to Native American figures, far more than some of the sports mascots today. I'm not against those mascots, but I'm just saying. Anyway, Cheyenne was used until the late 1990s as a trim level on Chevrolet fullsize pickups up 'till 1999 when the Silverado name simplified it all. And Pontiac StratoChief is probably the most American name of any car ever.

It absolutely does. Pontiac and it's imagery is in no way shape or form racist and those that say it is don't know the definition of the word.

I like the name 'Apache' alot to sixty8......in fact, I tend to like most native names for vehicles. Pontiac, Cheyenne, Cherokee etc etc...they have interest, unlike so many lame names on cars and trucks today.
