"Squaw is considered very derogatory to the Native Americans who share our geographic boundaries with us. We have the obligation to remove those names from the features out of respect to their heritage."

No it's not. Do some research. Some woman appeared on Oprah Winfrey's show in 1992 and said it was derogatory.

From Wikipedia:
The controversy increased when Oprah Winfrey invited the Native American activist Suzan Harjo onto her show in 1992. Harjo said on the show that "squaw is an Algonquin Indian word meaning vagina." As a result of these claims, some Native people have taken to spelling the word sq***, or calling it the "s-word" (Bright n.d.). This purported etymology has been widely adopted as the rationale for removing the word from maps, road signs, history books, and other public uses (Adams 2000).

However, according to Ives Goddard, the curator and senior linguist in the anthropology department of the Smithsonian Institution, this statement is not true (Bright n. d.; Goddard 1997). The word was borrowed as early as 1621 from the Massachusett word squa (Cutler 1994; Goddard 1996, 1997), one of many variants of the Proto-Algonquian *eθkwe·wa[4] (Goddard 1997); in those languages it meant simply "young woman." Although Algonquian linguists and historians (e.g. Goddard 1997, Bruchac 1999) have rejected Harjo's proposed etymology, it has been repeated by several journalists (e.g. Oprah Winfrey).

South Dakota decides Little Squaw Humper Creek may be deemed offensive by some, so it is to be renamed Big Squaw Humper Creek in an effort to boost public morale.

Yeah, see, the neat thing about Wikipedia is that they've got these things called "citations", which are generally links to non-Wikipedia pages that support the contentions within any particular article.  Which means you can check to see if the thing being cited is bullshiat or not.

Oh, look at this, two clicks away from the Wikipedia article on the word "Squaw", we find this:

THE TRUE HISTORY OF THE WORD SQUAW:

It is as certain as any historical fact can be that the word squaw that the English settlersin
Massachusetts used for "Indian woman'' in the early 1600s was adopted by them from the word
squa that their Massachusett-speaking neighbors used in their own language to mean "female,
younger woman,'' and notfrom Mohawk ojiskwa' "vagina,'' which hasthe wrong shape, the
wrong meaning, and was used by people with whom they then had no contact. The resemblance
that might be perceived between squaw and the lastsyllable ofthe Mohawk word is coincidental.
Such partialresemblances between words of different meaningsin different languages are
common and of no significance.

Negro Creek and Negro Hill become African-America Creek and African-American Hill, respectively.
