> (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.
