    How to use "Squaws" in context?

    The term "squaw" is most often associated with Native American women, who, through marriage to a white man, became permanent members of white society. The term can also extend to Native American women who are not married to white men.

    squaws were often the property of their husbands and were confined to the home. They were responsible for domestic duties and would often care for the children of their husband. Squaws were not allowed to own property or vote.

    Squaws often had little opportunity to engage in traditional Native American activities. They were often forced to assimilate to the white culture and dress in a European style.
