That's the same cliche nonsense they did with Chakotay's "Indian" heritage.
Well, to be fair, they did stay away from the Drunken Indian stereotype.

However, in Pathways, Jeri Taylor had Chakotay as a teetotaler from a dry planet. Because, you know, those Indians can't be trusted with their liquor, so they gave it up completely.
