California's Squaw Valley Ski Resort is thinking of removing 'Squaw' from its name. 'Squaw' is a derogatory term for Native American women. The president an CEO of the resort will be meeting with shareholders and local Washoe tribal leaders to get their input. There is no set date for the name change.
