Kemosabe confused

A recent conversation with one of the girls...

Kid: I didn't know there were Indians in Britain.

Me: Well sure.

Kid: In school today the teacher said something about British Indians. I didn't know they had Indian tribes over here. I wonder if they wore feathers in their hair like the American Indian chiefs. And what did they hunt because I've never seen buffalo here.

Me: India - Indians - people who moved to England from the country of India when it became a part of the British commonwealth.

Kid: Oh, right.  That makes MUCH more sense.
