Hottest squaw since Pocahontas?

In a DC comic book, the character Firestorm called Dawn, the wife of Manitou Raven, "the hottest squaw this side of Pocahontas." See the debate that ensued in Google Groups, and note my comments (39 and 41) in the middle.

Incidentally, Firestorm (i.e., the writer) was probably referring to the Disney cartoon version of Pocahontas. Since she was only a 10- or 12-year-old child, the original Pocahontas wasn't that hot.
