Re "Area tribe makes its point" (Page A1, June 12): If a local Sac tribe believes the far-away Washington D.C. football franchise uses an offensive team name, what about the name of the famous local ski resort overlooking Lake Tahoe? If Redskin is derogatory, then Squaw shouldn't be acceptable either.

Where does this stop? I bet Indiana is next.
