Never underestimate the ignorance of an SJW. In Mary Robinette Kowal and the “half-breed Cherokee” « Requires Only That You Hate, RH asks, "What the everloving fuck are “Native American Fae” anyway? Do they even have “Fae” as part of their mythos or is this just a case of whitey imposing their shit on everything?"
A teensy bit of googling would've brought her to the Cherokee "little people", the Yunwi Tsunsdi. But SJWs' idea of history and culture seems to have been shaped by Hollywood, something I first noticed when Coffeeandink displayed her ignorance about Jews in the West in the 19th Century.
There's a hint that you're dealing with a SJW when you notice someone getting angry who uses "Native American". American Indians like the folks in the American Indian Movement prefer "Indians" when you're talking about the larger group in English.
Whether Mary Kowal's story is any good, I don't know; I haven't read it. In the comments there, she says she wants to rewrite it. If she does, I hope she continues to listen to her Cherokee readers and ignores the SJWs. The loudest are rarely the wisest.
