Your Squaw Is on the Warpath is a 1969 studio album by American country singer-songwriter Loretta Lynn.

This was Lynn's first album of 1969. Two singles were released from this album in 1968. The lead single, "You've Just Stepped In (From Stepping Out on Me)" was a Top 5 Country hit. The second single was the title track and was also a Top 5 Country hit. The album's 11 tracks include four compositions either written or co-written by Lynn.

The album was given a positive review by Allmusic, which gave the album 4 out of 5 stars and called the album cover "one of the classic politically incorrect album covers." The album cover shows Lynn dressed in Native American clothing, out in the wilderness with her left hand over her head as if she is searching for something.

The album includes cover versions of hit songs from that year, including "Harper Valley PTA" by Jeannie C. Riley and "Kaw-Liga" by Charley Pride; and of the 1968 hit "I Walk Alone" by Marty Robbins. The album peaked at #2 on the Top Country Albums chart and #168 on the Billboard 200, becoming her third album to chart on the Billboard 200.
