In North America the term "Indian" may be derogatory (to some) unless it is referencing people from India.

The first people of North America are respectfully referred to as Native or indigenous.

Think of it as courtesy.  Like refraining using the "N" word for people with black skin.

We've accidentally mentioned word "Indian", all our references always saying "Native American", we apologize for inconvenience

I'm sure it will be appreciated.  

Note: the word is still in the first (initial) post.

Indeed, be aware this game is entering the " political correctness territory" defended by legions of social justice warriors. You'll neeed your own party of PR officers and lawyers to get out of there alive ;)  

Otherwise, this is an interesting concept. GL in this new project.

Congratulations and good luck with the development of the game.

I'll follow its development with interest.

As for naming  native people it should be left to them to decide how they want to be called I guess it's more than fair, they survived quasi extinction. Usually they go by tribe :D:D

Clearly looking like it takes place in the American Frontier west, so we will be playing as [one of?] the various plains tribes.

One of the first things that came into mind I'm rather excited for is the soundtrack and voice acting. i hope you plan for a lot of on-the-ground support for these, as authentic sounds and music would go a long way. (see Kisima Innitchuna)

As a single player game, will it be more of an open sandbox? Or story driven (or both?)

If sandbox, will we have a selection of tribes to choose from (apache, navajo, Lakota/Dakota, etc)

There are few settings that blow my mind in a "rpg" setting but everything from the 1700's Indian Wars and later Great Plains expansion conflicts are one of them.

Will this be still around the 1850's or on the post civil-war "1876" Last Stand Hill / Sitting Bull setting ?

Sorry missed your question.

The game takes place in the American Frontier, and you will be playing as a member of one the tribes

About soundtrack and voice acting - it's too early to give specific answer on this question, but thanks for pointing for something what we could possibly miss

It will be sandbox game with story

Answer to the last question will be given at a later stage of development

Thanks for a good set of questions!

What a brilliant idea!

And it looks brilliant too. I am interrested although I never had much patience for "stealth" games.

I hope going in guns blazing (or rather bows / Tomahawks ) is a viable option !

Are those in game pictures or art work? It looks amazing - I hope it will live up to the high expectations you've already established here :).

Will this have any plans for multiplayer?

I can't deny that running down humans with my failfit (copper plating + speed rig) 5 slot horsie that I stole from the front of a tavern from another player who spent weeks grinding pve for it and riding into sunset looking for adventures has me intrigued.

So any plans for this day-zish human hunting simulator/survival in the wild west frontier setting or just strictly pve?

The graphic looks great but there are no sails :D

No sails indeed, but there might be a chance for zombies :D

Anyway, good luck with this new title. Graphics looks catchy indeed.

Awesome,

i take it that it should have acceptable historical accuracy if it's made by you, and open world is always welcome.

-Would it be possible to know what books and other sources are being used ?

Amusingly enough i am reading a book about native americans atm struggle for the land, native north american resistance to genocide, ecocide and colonization, it marked me that from the starts it says that native americans are not fighting for equal rights but for their rights as nations. Lakota woman was another great book. ( both modern books )

-Any support for mods?

-Any ethnologist helping with the accuracy?

-Any native americans having a say on the game?
