Bonjour. On the test I took "Il y a un Indien et une Indienne, why are they capitalized. I thought nationalities in french were not capitalized.
This question relates to:French lesson "Forming the feminine of nouns and adjectives ending in -ien, -ion, -on"

If you look a the note in the lesson for the case of nationalities , if it is an adjective there is no capital letter, e.g.
Elle est indienne, il est français...
But if it is a noun, i.e. the inhabitant of that country there is a capital letter .
Elle c'est une Française, lui, c'est un Espagnol...
Hope this helps!
