             Summary: Cultural Appropriation of 'Apache'
                 Key: LEGAL-284
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-284
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Jeff Hui


(This might be the wrong place to contact, but I wasn't sure what else was best to ask.)

I use the Apache License 2.0 for many of my projects but I have been asked if the Apache Foundation
is [cultural appropriating|https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cultural_appropriation] the term
Apache from the Native American tribe.

So I ask, does the Apache Foundation use "Apache" with permission from the appropriate Native
American Tribe(s)?

I'm not particularly familiar with any of the nuances of this, but any details about this
would be appreciated.
