Rob's comment
Traditionally, Indians were more honest than Anglos, but the phrase "honest Injun" is a stereotype. And "Injun" is nonstandard English at best, a slur at worst.

Incidentally, if Honest Injun is truly striving for excellence, it might want to learn how to spell "site" (as in website) correctly.
