I want to use the old Indi..., I mean, Native American term "pow-wow" in mixed company, in public.
Will strangers give me cold, mean stares while my friends wince or hide? And if they do, can I tell them to stuff it because "pow-wow" is "pee-see"???

Given that the Native American community itself uses it as a term for its gatherings you should be fine.

Second that. And some of them call themselves "Indians," too.

You said Pow Wow and PC together. I thought you were talking about this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PowWow_(chat_program)).
If so, I would have rated it well back in the day. I used to use it all the time. :D
