Writing 'Native Americans' Into Popular Fiction: A Fan Perspective on the 'American School of Magic'

Recently, J.K. Rowling had this to say on the American school of magic.
Apparently the school has "relevance" to the "Native-American-Indian culture", "the name is of immigrant origin", and "indigenous magic was important in the founding of the school". Rowling also claimed, "if I say which tribes, location is revealed".
The first thing that concerned me is that Rowling used the term "American Indian" to refer to American tribes. However, the preferred term by U.S. natives is Native American, and in Canada, the tribes are known as First Nation peoples.
As I posted on another thread, it also concerns me that Rowling was born and raised as a British woman, with a British education. From what I know, she also lives in the UK, and only travels to the US seldomly. UK children, from my knowledge, are really not taught much about Native American tribes. That's more so American history. Even in the US, not much Native American history is taught in public (and private) schools, as much is focused on the "white narrative" of the country.
To compare myself to Rowling, I am a born American, with a similar education and upbringing to Rowling (college-educated white female), and most Native American history was scant in school. It had to be learned more so in college (American or Native American History). It's probably more likely that an American would know more about Native American history than a British person.
Even then, for anyone who knows anything about Native American history, it is clear that the past relations between Natives and white "immigrant" settlers (colonials) has been a long, bloody one, fraught with mistrust and warring. From the time that English settlers stepped foot at Roanoke (Virginia), and later Jamestown (Virginia) and Plymouth (Massachusetts), this has been so. The aptly named "French and Indian War" is evident of this as well, and that's not even counting later battles, such as Custer's Last Stand. For a very long time, Native Americans have been deceived, forced out, mistreated, mocked, and even killed by "immigrant" white settlers.
In the end, those Natives that resisted the US Government's attempt to drive them off their lands were hunted and killed (see Battle of the Little Bighorn, just one example among countless others), and the rest forced on to reservations - often times, land that not many wanted.
Even today, a great majority of Native Americans live on reservations, forced into poverty, poor education, and few options. There is one exception, the Seminole Tribe of Florida, which I will get to below.
To sum up my concern, Rowling is taking a huge risk to herself (and the Harry Potter series and world) by introducing a school of magic "founded with Native American magic, but with an immigrant name". It is already questionable for her to introduce such a connection, due the fact that she is British-born and raised, with no known Native American ancestry to boot. Should she forgo consulting Native American history experts, tribesmen, and elders, the use of Native American names and/or symbols by a non-native author may prove a harmful form of ethnic stereotyping. That, in turn, would promote misunderstanding and prejudice, which contributes to other problems faced by Native Americans today.
As a LOTR fan would put it, "One does not simply write about Native Americans in popular fiction". Especially when it is a "wizarding school with an 'immigrant' name".
One prime example of why this should not be done is Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga books and films, which controversially uses the Quileute, Makah, Ticuna, and Mapuche native American tribes.
Meyer's work and portrayal of such tribes has also been heavily criticized by Native Americans in various articles, some of which you can read here, here, and here.
Stephenie Meyer is American, and even she didn't get it right. While the popularity of the Twilight Saga brought fresh blood and money into La Push, the main town on the Quileute reservation, it is a temporary solution to a widespread problem (reservation poverty) that needs a permanent fix.
For example, Native Americans are, unfortunately, one of the poorest minorities (in both wealth and education) in America. The sole exception seems to be the Seminole tribe in my home state of Florida, which was not only never defeated by the US military, but owns and operates the multi-million (billion?) dollar, international Hard Rock casino franchise.
Time and time again, the Seminole Tribe of Florida have proven their ability to strengthen their position in an evolving world. A sovereign government with an elected Tribal Council, the Seminole Tribe has achieved remarkable success since it became the first U.S. Indian Tribe to open high stakes bingo halls in 1979. In 2004, the Seminole Tribe opened two Seminole Hard Rock Hotels and Casinos in Florida. With the March 2007 acquisition of the Hard Rock brand, the Seminole Tribe of Florida added the prestige of one of the worlds most respected brands.
It's the perfect marriage of two kindred spirits. Like the Seminoles, Hard Rock's philosophy has always been based on strong values, including the importance of being authentic and independent and a shared service for preserving our wildlife and protecting the planet. Building on its rich heritage of courageous and groundbreaking achievements, the Seminole Tribe of Florida is now poised to expand its horizon even further, to all corners of the globe. (Hard Rock Cafe official website)
For one, I would certainly hope that the school of magic, if it does have "indigenous magic", does involve the Seminole Tribe in its founding. Logically, the Seminole Tribe would be one of the only tribes (if not the only tribe) rich and influential enough to even fund such a school of magic, especially into the modern day. Rowling also mentioned "tribes", as in "more than one tribe", and technically, the Seminoles are just that. According to Wikipedia, the Seminole tribe "emerged in a process of ethnogenesis out of [different] groups of Native Americans, most significantly Creek from what are now northern Muscogee".
As the Seminole tribe have a branch in Florida - including influence via the Hard Rock casino franchise in Orlando, the home of the first WWOHP - it is the tribe that makes the most sense for Rowling to write on. From my knowledge, Rowling did visit Florida (Orlando) at least once in the past while the original WWOHP was being constructed. It would be easy for her to take a detour to the local Hard Rock Cafe - located in CityWalk, in front of Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure/WWOHP - or even to the Seminole reservation itself.
tl;dnr: Rowling is opening a rather large can of worms and taking a huge risk in including an American school of magic with "an immigrant name, but Native American founding/influences"; the Seminole Tribe is a possible candidate for the "tribes" mentioned by Rowling.
As an added note, I may get downvotes for this, but it is fact that, whenever someone not of Native descent tends to write about Natives in any way in popular fiction, it has a large potential to stir up controversy. Controversy that may not be good for the Harry Potter franchise as a whole.
