A ski resort near Lake Tahoe is changing its name after saying it was considered sexist and racist.
The resort made the decision after receiving input from Native American tribes.
The resort will now be known as Palisades Tahoe, a change from the “derogatory and offensive” Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows.
Explaining the name change, the resort said that the word “squaw” is “offensive, derogatory, racist, and misogynistic.”
“We are very pleased with this decision; today is a day that many have worked towards for decades,” said Tribal chairman Serrell Smokey.
