Lake Calhoun <http://www.openstreetmap.org/?way=44164741> is the subject of 
local discussion due to racist associations of the word "Calhoun".  I know a 
name change has been promoted, but I have no further details.

The name was recently changed to name=Bde Maka Ska, with name:dak=Mde Maka 
Ska, something that won't be recognised by most people or entities in the 
area.

I added name:en=Lake Calhoun and added a note but have taken no further 
action.
