Originally stating: "Squaw with child at train station." Squaw is from 'Squa' usually associated with the Huron-Oriquis history and is used by Great Lake Indians to refer to women from other Indian cultures or groups, who they pulled from the tribes after killing their husbands for use as slaves. European explorers changed the use of this term to refer to young women, for sailors to take advantage of.
