In a continuation of the radical left’s effort to cancel and completely erase America’s history, the Biden administration crossed another landmark that would make even the most progressive Democrat smile.
According to Reuters, the Biden administration announced that it has successfully removed the word “squaw” from “nearly 650 place names on federal land as part of an effort to reckon with the nation’s racist past.”
The Interior Department announced that it had undertaken the project last year, because, why not — it’s not as if the Biden administration has more pressing matters, such as high inflation, skyrocketing crime, and record-setting high gas prices.
“I feel a deep obligation to use my platform to ensure that our public lands and waters are accessible and welcoming. That starts with removing racist and derogatory names that have graced federal locations for far too long,” Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, a Native American, said of the effort.
The “squaw” references that had to be replaced with non-racist names were determined by the Board on Geographic Names, the New York Post reported.
Haaland added to her statement that making the change, while Americans go hungry and try to figure out how to pay their electric bills, is “charting a path for an inclusive America.”
Some of the name changes confirmed so far include:
“Squaw Gulch, a valley in Placer County, California, to Mani’pa Gulch; Squaw Lake in Hinsdale County, Colorado, to Grizzly Lake; and Squaw Mountain, a summit in Utah County, Utah, to Kyhv Peak.”

Liberals went on a binge to cancel and delete American history over the past several years, and it’s getting worse. Some on social media pointed out how such a task force is a waste of time.
“The origin of the word ‘squaw‘ comes from the Algonquian language, in which it meant simply woman or wife in later usage. I’m glad they are managing language and not their basic function of managing the nations natural resources,” one user wrote.
Only time will tell if they continue on, but if they do, America might soon no longer have a history — bad or good — to remember.
