Oh no. Well there is a lot of banter around the word “squaw” being used today. I have only heard it used in a racist and derogatory manner, and thus my associations with the word are of disgust. The word originates from an Algonquian word which means woman. Which is etymologically not offensive at all. In fact, Navajo people still use the word and do not see it as a “bad word” at all.
Based on all accounts the company did not mean to cause offense, as they are a Japanese company and may not have understood the intracacies of the word being used in North America. Or something just got lost in translation.
I also found this adorable hippy Momiji doll, Momii Rainbow, who is totally fun in her Pucci-esque print pants (no doubt of polyester). I really do totally want to go out and buy these dolls because they are cute and a lot of fun, but I do find myself a little concerned with the word usage still.
