Indians Jumping On The PC Bandwagon

Tribes, Gov't Want 'Squaw' Names Changed:

"American Indians' heightened sensitivity to the word came about in 1992 after an activist announced on a television talk show that squaw is derived from a vulgar Mohawk word.
Linguists maintain 'squaw' means 'woman' in the language of the Massachusett tribe, which once lived on the East Coast."

I don't know any indian languages. But any reference to squaw I've heard meant that the woman was someone's wife.
I guess this was bound to come up sooner or later.
