Residents of just about every state use the usual English conventions to form the demonym:

Hawaii - Hawaiian, Alaska - Alaskan, Kansas - Kansan, Florida - Floridian, Wisconsin - Wisconsinite, Rhode Island - Rhode Islander, Texas - Texan, until we come to Indiana.

Things were already confusing enough, so they're officially called Hoosiers, since "Indianian" would mean "of the land of the land of the people of India".
Well, Indianian could be the people of Indiania, which is slightly closer

The one that really doesn't make sense are the Guamanians.
