Urban Outfitters Stops Using the Word 'Navajo'

Last month, the clothing-and-home-decor retail store Urban Outfitters pulled the word 'Navajo' from a new line after criticism from the Navajo Nation as well as numerous bloggers.

However, items that were affiliated with the name are still being sold - everything from underwear to shirts to flasks.

Does the offense stop with the name? Or does it extend into appropriation of Native patterns?
