Peckerwood is a term used in the Southern United States for a woodpecker which is also used as a derogatory term for white people, especially poor rural whites. Originally an ethnic slur, the term has been embraced by a subculture related to prison gangs and outlaw motorcycle clubs. The term originates in African American Vernacular English and was in use as an inversion of woodpecker by the 1830s, with the sense referring to white people documented from the 1850s. African-American folklore in the 1920s contrasted the white “peckerwood” bird with the African-American blackbird.

Crazy ass peckerwood shirt is a cool shirt that you should have. Historically, the term “peckerwood” was commonly applied to white prisoners in general. The cemetery at Leavenworth Penitentiary, officially known as Mount Hope, is informally known as “Peckerwood Hill” by prisoners and guards. In the later half of the 20th century the term narrowed to apply to a white subculture associated with street gangs and prison gangs, such as the Aryan Brotherhood. This subculture is also known as PW, P-Dub, or collectively as “the Woodpile”. Men in this group are called “peckerwoods” and women “featherwoods”. The woodpecker is often used as a general symbol for the group, such as in prison tattoos. It is usually drawn with a long beak, sometimes drawn to resemble Woody Woodpecker or Mr. Horsepower.
