Ash Ponders in the New York Times for Slur Place Names

660 U.S. Place Names Include a Slur for Native Women. Change Is Coming.

There are more than 660 places in the US federal database of place names that use a slur for Native women as part or whole of their name. The US Interior intends to change this rapidly.

I wrote a python script to help me find a route among the 12 closest such places and made a plan to visit them all. But then the editors saw some of my early photos and told me I already got what they wanted. haha.
