With a feather and a bow and arrow. Where the idea for the politically incorrect alphabet started - see message Back to school/School rules/What is the politically incorrect alphabet?

And appropriately enough this is the first illustration I completed.

How about S for Squaw?

I don't think S for Squaw, or that other suggestion C for Chief, are politically incorrect. It's a local term for 'young woman' rather than an imposition from outside, and only offensive if intended to be, generally outside of the native American milieu. Chief and Brave are European imports, but are words of respect rather than disparagement and so to my knowledge are not proscribed.
