The runs are the native names of geological features, right? Where as 'Super Chief' is just an english label for a native american. Are they renaming the tomahawk lift?
95% of the names of the runs can be traced back to Native American origins or are names of geological features, although a lot of the geological features happen to also be named after Native-related things. The area's pretty heavy with Natives, and Belleayre happens to employ a few, although I doubt it was the locals who wanted that name changed. Tomahawk is still Tomahawk.The runs are the native names of geological features, right? Where as 'Super Chief' is just an english label for a native american. Are they renaming the tomahawk lift?
If by "many people", you mean white liberals attempting to virtue-signal in an overtly showy & public manner by using minorities as a tool with which to make themselves appear self-righteous, then yes, "many people" indeed.Using native names isn't offensive, but using a made up label for a native american is to many people.
