links from language articlesEdit

Although you guys have been good at linking ethnicity articles to the appropriate language articles, we've been pretty slack in doing the reverse. I've made a proposal at Infobox language to add an ethnicity parameter (or whichever term you think is appropriate and easy to type – 'nation' has been unfortunately (and inaccurately) used for states where a language is official, though we can change that to s.t. else with a bot if people like) so that there's quick and easy access to the anthro articles from the language articles. (More obvious and probably more reliable in the long run than a 'see also' link at the bottom of the page.) Please chime in if you'd like that; you'd probably know best here which articles should be linked. — kwami (talk) 23:52, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

questions about using templateEdit

I've recently added a couple of articles about notable persons with Indigenous heritage (Alan Tafoya, Darryl Tonemah) and am not sure about using the identifying template for this project with them. I put them on the articles' talk pages. Is this correct? Or should it go elsewhere? Or do these articles even fall under the scope of this project? Thanks MinervaK (talk) 17:49, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Sorry about the delay. These individuals might be best covered by WP:WikiProject Indigenous peoples of North America. Indigenous peoples from Canada and the mainland United States are well covered by that group. Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central America are all geographically part of North America but tend to get neglected by WPIPNA, so I typically double tag those. Greenlandic and Alaskan articles get tagged WPINPA as well as WP:WikiProject Arctic. WP:WikiProject Mesoamerica focuses on precolumbian and protohistorical Mesoamerican history, so anything more recent fall under the aegis of WPIPA. Then any indigenous articles from South America fall exclusively under this group. -Uyvsdi (talk) 21:02, 24 October 2011 (UTC)Uyvsdi

Standard for European "discovery" in the AmericasEdit

An issue has been raised on what guidelines exist in WP on how to describe the first sighting by Europeans of physical features in the Americas (see Talk:Vasco Núñez de Balboa#Quotes around the word "discovery"). Which made me look up a quote I saw recently, from the author's (Warburton Pike) introduction to The Barren Ground of Northern Canada:

... I naturally passed through a great deal of new country, and discovered, as we white men say when we are pointed out some geographical feature by an Indian who has been familiar with it since childhood, many ...

So, anyway, are there any existing guidelines that would apply, or should we pursue developing a quideline? -- Donald Albury 12:18, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

Fifth World (Native American mythology)Edit

An editor has just brought this article to my attention. It seems to be based on Graham Hancock rather than any of the academic literature. I'll drop some links on its talk page. Dougweller (talk) 20:55, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Must get to bed but I've just had to replace all the text as it was straight copyvio. Found an old version which is also pretty bad, but it was either that or blank the page. So it wasn't Hancock after all, someone just added that as a reference. It was the first 3 paragraphs of this page[1]. Dougweller (talk) 21:09, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Defining indigenous American identityEdit

This discussion is posted at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Indigenous peoples of North America since that Wikiproject is more active, but please, please contribute to the dicussion there, since it needs to be addressed. Of course, no two people on the planet have the exact same criteria for determining indigenous American identity, but hopefully some commonalities can be discovered and good citations shared. -Uyvsdi (talk) 19:29, 27 June 2012 (UTC)Uyvsdi

Recognition of Native American sacred sites in the United StatesEdit

Need subject expert concerning Wikipedia:Fringe theories/Noticeboard#Gregory DeyermenjianEdit

A couple of us have uncovered a large set of articles which seem to be promotional for Gregory Deyermenjian and which have probably been edited by him or by close associates. We need expert assessment of the articles from someone who is familiar with the state of Incan archaeological studies. It would be simplest if the discussion were conducted at the WP:FT/N section linked above. Mangoe (talk) 18:31, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

Lanaguage?Edit

I cannot verify that Conambo language existed. Found no hits on Google. It could be google bias against everything non-English and non-western, or it could be a hoax. I don't have any specialized knowledge in linguistics or indigenous peoples. Can someone look into this? Thanks, Renata (talk) 20:36, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

Ethnologue doesn't mention it, and it has no ISO 639-3, so should probably be nominated for deletion. -Uyvsdi (talk) 22:33, 19 July 2013 (UTC)Uyvsdi

Naming convention for identically named indigenous peoplesEdit

I'm about to create a new page for the Yuki people of central Bolivia. However, Yuki people already exists, describing an unrelated ethnic group in California. Does anyone have strong preferences about the disambiguating phrase: country, state/department, or broader ethnic category. That is, should there be Yuki people (United States) or Yuki people (California) on the one hand, and Yuki people (Bolivia) or Yuki people (Cochabamba) or Yuki people (Tupi-Guarani) on the other. I'm leaning towards Yuki people (California) and Yuki people (Bolivia) since these are recognizable geographic divisions with the necessary specificity (the Yuki of Bolivia previously lived in Santa Cruz as well as Cochabamba departments).--Carwil (talk) 05:54, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

Maku people is one of the worst case scenarios, I've encountered, so it's remained a disambiguation page. Ethnologue is the best source I've found for alternate names (and for pointing out which names are pejorative and should be avoided). They prefer the term "Yuqui", so that might be your best choice in this instance, with a hatnote placed at the top of the Californian Yuki people article linking to the Bolivian article. (BTW Yuki people has been stable in its name for three years, so even though there's a lot of unilateral moves going on in ethnic group articles :( any moves there should be proposed and consent established.)
Yuqui, Yuquis, and Yuqui people are all up for grabs. Their language, Yuqui language, already has an article, as distinguished from Yuki language, so that establishes a viable naming system. BTW thanks for creating the Yuki-Ichilo River Native Community Lands article. -Uyvsdi (talk) 19:39, 23 November 2013 (UTC)Uyvsdi
Despite the fact that the letter k is an unusual letter in the Spanish, Yuki appears to be a far more common name for the indigenous group in Bolivia, but sources differ. Advice?

In general, I don't think avoiding duplicates by using different spellings is a good enough reason, so please help me get this right.--Carwil (talk) 04:23, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I am not sure if this is a good naming precedent to set. We would be basically creatingrenewed impetus for a naming convention that appears to be otherwise declining. Probably a disambiguation solution is better, for example Yuki people (California) and Yuki people (Bolivia).User:Maunus ·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 04:27, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
Yuki people is well established, so moving it would require consensus-building. -Uyvsdi (talk) 07:57, 24 November 2013 (UTC)Uyvsdi
User:Uyvsdi has created Yuqui people (and put in some good work on fleshing it out) rather than await an agreement here on what's appropriate. I'm not comfortable with that as the decisionmaking process. (And I would add that this kind of sidestepping an active conversation feels disrespectful and frustrating; if it were my first foray onto wikipedia, it might have discouraged me from coming back.)

Anyhow, comments on the naming? Should I solicit more input at a noticeboard?--Carwil (talk) 16:41, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

Sorry to offend you, but the problem is utterly solvable and has been for years. Many ethnic groups who don't have Wikipedia articles do have corresponding language articles, and there is nothing wrong with following the precedent set by the language articles. Yuki people is arguably the primary topic, so there would be no call to move that (and you would need consensus). During the five-day gap in this "active conversation," I was able to create four Bolivian ethnic group articles.
There already are longstanding policies in place about disambiguation. According to WP:NCDAB, "Natural disambiguation. When there is another term (such as Apartment instead of Flat) or more complete name (such as English language instead of English) that is unambiguous, commonly used in English, and equally clear, that term may be used." It goes on: "Natural disambiguation is generally preferable to parenthetical disambiguation; for instance mechanical fan and hand fan are used instead of fan (mechanical) and fan (implement). If natural disambiguation is not available, a parenthetical is used." There was a simple natural disambiguation here. Parenthetical disambiguation is a last resort, not a first resort. -Uyvsdi (talk) 18:41, 29 November 2013 (UTC)Uyvsdi
BTW Wikipedia:Naming conventions (ethnicities and tribes) spells out some issues. You might suggest edits to that. -Uyvsdi (talk) 19:12, 29 November 2013 (UTC)Uyvsdi

New genome sequencing studyEdit

I'd just like to note that I've added information to the Clovis culture article about the genome sequencing study that just appeared in Nature, and nominated the story at WP:ITN/C. Additional edits would of course be welcome. Looie496 (talk) 18:30, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Will add this to Genetic history of indigenous peoples of the Americas when i read more about it over the next few days. Feel free to do so yourself if your in a rush. -- Moxy (talk) 19:24, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Jemez language promotion from a stub.Edit

Hi there. I recently noticed that a lot of content was added to the Jemez language page. It was roughly put there, perhaps copied and pasted, but it was a significant amount. I've reworded a lot of it, and fixed the crude typological layout and have removed the stub template. I've also added some sources in the bibliography section for further research. If anyone has access to these articles, it could really help that page. Thanks. Joeystanley (talk) 14:29, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi again. I contacted a user who had access to one source, so I added as much as I could to the page. Tribal rules prohibit the the language to be written, so I wasn't able to put specific words (one of my edits has already been deleted because of this). I also transferred the consonant inventory into IPA charts, though I'm not sure if they look all right. Anyway, that's my update. Joeystanley (talk) 15:32, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks so much for your edits. I added information about the tribe's language program and updated the WikiProjects. Since the Pueblo of Jemez is in the United States, it would fall under WP:WP Indigenous peoples of the Americas' daughter WikiProject: WP:WP Indigenous peoples of North America. WP:WP IPA was created since Latin American Indigenous peoples articles have been so neglected. Cheers, -Uyvsdi (talk) 16:12, 25 March 2014 (UTC)Uyvsdi

Settlement of the AmericasEdit

I've raised an issue about possible OR at Talk:Settlement of the Americas and would appreciate comments, or at least eyes. Thanks. Dougweller (talk) 14:46, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

MexicaEdit

Can someone please take a look at some recent edits.[2] These basically say the Mexica are the Aztec, which does seem to be a popular although incorrect view if [3] is correct. Dougweller (talk) 09:21, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

TaínoEdit

There's an IP changing this article who has obviously read What Became of the Taíno?, watched a tv program on it, or something similar. Unfortunately they aren't using sources and are leaving the article a bit of a mess. I don't know if anyone feels up to fixing this, but I don't have time at the moment or really the background. Doug Weller (talk) 11:20, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

Doctrine of DiscoveryEdit

With the approach of Columbus Day, I searched for Doctrine of Discovery and was surprised by the redirect to Discovery Doctrine which is only about US law, with no mention of the Inter caetera, the Papal bull that was used as precedent for US law. Certainly the larger topic of how Europeans justified the colonization of the Americas (and continues to do so?) deserves its own article, but I don't know enough about the subject to create it.FriendlyFred (talk) 13:20, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

Slavery among the indigenous peoples of the AmericasEdit

Slavery among the indigenous peoples of the Americas needs its lead to be rewritten, and the range of articles on this topic should be better organized and completed. Please come help.--Carwil (talk) 05:26, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

Indian reservationsEdit

Does Guatemala, Honduras, French Guiana, Suriname, El Salvador has Indian reservations like this?: Lands inhabited by indigenous peoples--Kaiyr (talk) 17:01, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

I don't know about the others, but it seems unlikely in Guatemala's case, for demographic reasons. According to Demographics of Guatemala, an estimated 40% of the population are Amerindians. More than 2 million people in Guatemala speak one of several living languages in the Mayan languages language family. A minority of the Amerindians in the country speak one of the Arawakan languages, and there is a small group who speaks one of the endangered (and apparently moribund) Xincan languages.

Unlike the situation in several of the other countries in Central America, the Amerindians in Guatemala represent one of the largest ethnic groups in the country and are actually the dominant population in some of its subdivisions. In the Quiché Department, 88.6% of the population are Mayans and 65.1% of them are part of the K'iche' people. Dimadick (talk) 09:59, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

Chiefdoms of Hispaniola and ColumbusEdit

This is an interesting article, though the sources are a bit light, and I don't have the expertise to evaluate them. It does look like a concept that should be a part of the Christopher Columbus and Voyages of Christopher Columbus articles.--Pharos (talk) 20:03, 18 October 2017 (UTC)

Category: Cherokee PeopleEdit

Conflicting informationEdit

This source says Long Island was excluded from lands the Cherokee turned over to the colonists as a result of a July 20, 1777 treaty. Cherokee treaties lists a Treaty of Fort Henry which defined the boundaries of the Watauga Association but that article doesn't even mention the treaty. However, my source refers to the 1777 Long Island of the Holston Treaty which Wikipedia says was dated 1781.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 19:02, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Sad to say, but newspapers sometimes get things wrong, especially when the subject is historical. If other sources provide different information, then either the article should reflect the differences in sources, or if the preponderance of other sources agree on a different version of events, I would not use the source in question. - Donald Albury 00:12, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
I think this man is mostly reliable because he indicates that he interviewed people to tell us historical details. He doesn't work for the newspaper as such, but he can get things wrong from time to time. I tried contacting him another time but he didn't respond. But I don't know where the other sources are.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 15:39, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
And the Wikipedia articles and list don't actually give sources.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 15:49, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
No sources. How gauche! :) Well, if you can find only one source, that's what you use. - Donald Albury 17:51, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
I sent an email to the writer but he didn't respond the last time, so I don't know. I'll do some more searching at the library.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 19:22, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
Haven't checked my email.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 13:59, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

I know this is silly, and it dates back to when I was scared to do anything risky at home and also had slow Internet. I don't do Google searches from home. I did here and there were two treaties with the same name. Wikipedia is WRONG.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 20:43, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

And I got this from the writer of the newspaper article.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 21:04, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
I find some sites that list a Treaty of Long Island in 1777, while others list a Treaty of the Long Island of the Holston in 1761. One site that has the Treaty of the Long Island of the Holston in 1761 [4] also lists a Treaty of DeWitt’s Corner and a Treaty of Fort Henry, both with the Cherokee in 1777. I have no idea who or what is authoritative on this. - Donald Albury 23:43, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
So we have no way of knowing how to fix this at this point.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 15:05, 1 November 2018 (UTC)
The Encyclopedia Britanica [5] mentions the Treaty of DeWitt's Corner, May 20, 1777, the Treaty of Long Island of Holston, July 20, 1777, and the Second Treaty of Long Island of Holston, July 26, 1781, pertaining to the Cherokees. This book [6], page 519, mentions the Treaty of Long Island on the Holston, in 1761, but doesn't seem to have any further info. I saw something yeasterday about a private treaty which was repudiated by the states of North Carolina and Virginia. I need look some more for that to see if it is pertinent. - Donald Albury 22:18, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

Indians?Edit

I have been looking around for some sort of MOS guidance about the appropriateness – or otherwise – of referring to various indigenous people and peoples as "Indians" (e.g. here/here), but I haven't been able to find any obvious WP mention of this matter, which perhaps isn't as simple as it might seem (cf. Indian Peace Commission). (On a related point, would it perhaps be helpful to add Indigenous peoples in Brazil to this project's Open tasks - copy edit list?) 86.191.67.245 (talk) 15:28, 3 September 2020 (UTC)

Here and here are discussions, USA specific, from a couple of years ago. I don't think there is yet a good consensus in WP on the use of "Indian". Use what you think is appropriate, and be prepared to discuss your choice with whoever has a different perspective. - Donald Albury 01:07, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

User script to detect unreliable sourcesEdit

I have (with the help of others) made a small user script to detect and highlight various links to unreliable sources and predatory journals. Some of you may already be familiar with it, given it is currently the 39th most imported script on Wikipedia. The idea is that it takes something like

  • John Smith "Article of things" Deprecated.com. Accessed 2020-02-14. (John Smith "[https://www.deprecated.com/article Article of things]" ''Deprecated.com''. Accessed 2020-02-14.)

and turns it into something like

It will work on a variety of links, including those from {{cite web}}, {{cite journal}} and {{doi}}.

The script is mostly based on WP:RSPSOURCES, WP:NPPSG and WP:CITEWATCH and a good dose of common sense. I'm always expanding coverage and tweaking the script's logic, so general feedback and suggestions to expand coverage to other unreliable sources are always welcomed.

Do note that this is not a script to be mindlessly used, and several caveats apply. Details and instructions are available at User:Headbomb/unreliable. Questions, comments and requests can be made at User talk:Headbomb/unreliable.
