1. What is the difference between a "lady" and a "squaw" and what is the racial significance?

- A lady is a White, high-class lady and a squaw is portrayed to be a dirty, wild Indian. The racial significance is there shouldn't be one because she's half white and half Indian yet because she has the Indian in her, she's automatically considered inferior to the Ladies.
