Indian Red is named after a famous red pigment from India, and has no connection to Native Americans. 

Navajo White refers to the background color of the Navajo Nation flag.  I was under the impression that it was defined as the "official" color, but I can't find support for that now; slightly changing it to a less unfortunate hex code would probably be fine.

Moccasin has no particular special meaning, but also it's just the name of a type of shoe.
