It’s Official! It’s now Piestewa Peak!

I just got an email from the U.S. Board on Geographic Names:

This is to inform you…

Squaw Peak


Here’s the full text:

This is to inform you that the U.S. Board on Geographic Names, at its April 10, 2008 meeting, approved the proposal to change officially the name of Squaw Peak in the City of Phoenix to Piestewa Peak.  At the same meeting, the Board did not approve the proposal to change the summit s name to Swilling Peak.  The change has been recorded in the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS), the nation s official geographic names repository, which is available and searchable online

Congratulations to everyone who took part in this effort.
