    Oregon still working to rename dozens of ‘squaw’ place names


    In 2001, Indian women convinced the Oregon Legislature to rename all the “squaw” place names in the state.
    Since then, only 52 out of 172 place names have been changed. The process is slow moving and involves review by the Oregon Geographic Names Board and final approval by the U.S. Board on Geographic Names.
