SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- A popular California ski resort whose name included a derogatory term for Native American women has changed its name to Palisades Tahoe.
Resort officials announced the change Monday, completing a new name search that began last year amid a reckoning over racial injustice.
The renaming of Squaw Valley Ski Resort is one of many efforts to address a history of colonialism and oppression against Indigenous people.
Regional California tribes had been asking for a name change for decades.
The Washoe tribe will continue to work with the resort and local officials to remove the derogatory word from other places.
