FILE - In this Feb. 28, 1960, file photo, Olympic athletes march into Blyth Arena at Squaw Valley for the ceremony to end the Winter Olympic Games in Olympic Valley, Calif. California's Squaw Valley Ski Resort is considering changing its name to remove "squaw," a derogatory term for Native American women. Squaw Valley President & CEO Ron Cohen says resort officials are meeting with shareholders and the local Washoe tribal leadership to get their input. He says he can't give a timeline on when the decision will be made. The renaming of Squaw Valley Ski Resort is one of many efforts across the nation to address colonialism and indigenous oppression.
