Re-naming Squaw Tits

Postby hgrapid » Sat Feb 13, 2021 6:26 pm

Hey folks, two of my hiking friends are Navajo and they are working to change the name of Squaw Tits in Arizona: https://listsofjohn.com/peak/78916
Ultimately, it would be nice over time to change mountains named Squaw like they did in Phoenix by naming the popular mountain Piestewa Peak. Squaw is not an indigenous tribe name. It is actually just a slur for indigenous women. However, in the immediate term, I was hoping Squaw Tits could be renamed Peak 2,478. I think all of us can do our part to try to ween off these names. Just a request and hoping it will be considered.
