You might have to blame J Fennimore Cooper for that.

The Aztecs. A fascinating look into one of the most complex essentially paleolithic societies we have significant information about.

Unfortunately The Last of the Mohicans (1826) sort of confused the names of 2 different tribes. The Mahican of upstate New Work where the story takes place, and the Mohegan of Connecticut.

We can suppose that the Mohicans are actually Mahicans spelled a little different, but Uncas has the same name as a famous Mohegan sachem who split his tribe from the Pequot and is thus sometimes called "The First of the Mohegans". Still the Mohicans are mostly based on the Mahicans.

Since there are still Mahicans and Mohegans, you can say that the Mohicans still exist today if you don't care much about spelling and pronunciation.

And if you want to see a movie version that really ignores history look for Der letzte Mohikaner (1965) English version The Last Tomahawk which transfers the story to the trans Mississippi west!

The Mohicans were the Mahican. The Mohegan were a different tribe.

I quite like the Blackfoot. That might be due to the rock band.
And the Shawnee because of Tecumseh.

The Crows, who else. But I understand that really they should be the Ravens, as they were described to the French who were the first Europeans to come into contact with them, as the "People of the big beaked bird" so take your pick. I believe that Raven is more prominent than Crow in Native American culture, so perhaps Raven is more accurate, but we got Crow.
