Monmonier quoted in AP story

Monmonier, MarkProfessor Mark Monmonier was quoted in the recent Associated Press article, "Activists work for Native American-friendly site names." Monmonier says of the possible renaming of Harney Peak, "There's the possibility that with increased sensitivity to the wanton slaughter of Native American people west of the Mississippi that the name of a general who was involved in that slaughter would be no less offensive than the word `squaw'." Harney could be the new `squaw' if you want to look at it like that." 05/05/15
