Self-identified when no Nation givenEdit

I thought we had decided that when no Nation has been stated, the identification is self-identified as it cannot be checked. The only live sources on Beyoncé are the Fox news statement that her mother believes Creole = some degree of unnamed Native American descent, and the ICT blurb that quotes a makeup commercial, but does not in any way support the claim. I agree that people with no mention or sourcing are best removed from all of these cats. And she is another for whom there is no reliable sourcing. With no Nation claimed, it can't be sourced as anything other than self-identification. - CorbieVreccan 18:21, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

We verify/check facts using reliable sources, and there is no policy, guideline or community consensus that I'm aware of requiring special tribal-specific sources. Our standard RS requirements apply. As you pointed out, the sources for Beyonce, aren't great, so I'm OK with removing the Native American category altogether in that case. Perhaps the other ancestry categories should be removed as well. –dlthewave 11:54, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
