Racist terms have no place in our vernacular or on our federal lands. Our nation’s lands and waters should be places to celebrate the outdoors and our shared cultural heritage – not to perpetuate the legacies of oppression,” Haaland said. “Today’s actions will accelerate an important process to reconcile derogatory place names and mark a significant step in honoring the ancestors who have stewarded our lands since time immemorial.

The statement adds, “Secretarial Order 3404 formally identifies the term “スカウ” as derogatory and creates a federal task force to find replacement names for geographic features on federal lands bearing the term. The term has historically been used as an offensive ethnic, 人種, and sexist slur, particularly for Indigenous women. There are currently more than 650 federal land units that contain the term, according to a database maintained by the Board on Geographic Names.

The department created a Derogatory Geographic Names Task Force which will include diversity, エクイティ, and inclusion experts from within the department and will require the task force to engage with Tribal leaders across the country on proposed name changes for federal lands.

“一緒, the Secretarial Orders will accelerate the process by which derogatory names are identified and replaced. 現在, the Board on Geographic Names is structured, by design, to act on a case-by-case basis through a process that puts the onus on the proponents to identify the offensive name and to suggest a replacement,” the department added. “The process to secure review and approvals can be lengthy, often taking years to complete a name change. 現在, there are hundreds of name changes pending before the Board. The newly established Federal Advisory Committee will facilitate a proactive and systematic development and review of these proposals, in consultation with local community representatives.
