What is a Native American Indian woman called?

Squaw, from the Massachuset (Algonquian) eshqua, was commonly used for a North American native woman. Perhaps a little insensitive nowadays.

Red Indian is insulting and 100 years out of date.

Names for native American or first nations women include Mary and Jane.

Notes on term usages:

Squaw originated as simple term; it was quickly changed however to represent an Indian woman who sold herself for sex. There are very few Native Americans today who would not perform 'brutal acts of savage conduct' on you for using the term today. The same goes for the term "Red Indian" or "Redskin" although your chance of survival is higher with the use of the latter terms.

Native American women are called: Women, Woman, Mother (as by us they are likened to the Great Spirit), Lady, Ma'am, Mom & Mother; Susie, Tara, Lisa - and more. These people, these human beings, are different from you in only their cultural belief systems.

What is the object above Chief Wahoo's head in some Indian logos?

The only object I know of above Chief Wahoo's head, in any Indians logo, is a feather attached to the back of his head.

The 1954 Cleveland Indians won the American League championship, only to fall to the New York Giants in the World Series. To indicate the championship, they employed an alternate logo featuring Wahoo looking up at a crown on his head in 1955 and sometimes beyond.

What's confusing is that Sportslogos.net indicated this logo was in use in 1953, prior to winning that particular title.

Famous Native Americans

Who invented the name for the Jim Crow laws?

Dr. John Thorp, a cultural anthropologist at the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia at Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Mich., said a song sung by blacks in the early 19th century poked fun at Jim Crow, a slave master, and a law that said blacks couldn't dance by shuffling their feet. In the 1820s it appeared in sheet music written by Thomas Dartmouth "Daddy" Rice, a white actor and musician who did short skits between play scenes at the Park Theater in New York City. Some accounts say Rice heard a black man singing the Jim Crow song on the street and decided to use that image as a stage character in his act. Rice depicted blacks as lazy, singing and dancing fools in his act. His stage show was a hit, and Jim Crow became a stock character in other minstrel shows. The term "Jim Crow Law" was first used n 1841 in reference to a Massachusetts law which required railroads to provide a separate car for Negro passengers.

In the evening clour of the cloud is seem to be red sometime. why?

Dust in the air makes the clouds look red - there are winds blowing at high altitudes that can carry dust for hundred, and even thousands, of miles. The sun shining though the dust laden air makes the clouds appear red, and can make for beautiful sunsets... Light white is made up of 7 visible colours which can be seen during a rainbow.As the sun sets,white light from the sun passes through the water vapour in the air and other particles,causing the white light to break up into different colours.Since red has the longest wavelength,it is the colour mostly seen during sunset.
