Requested move[edit]

  • Ais (tribe)AisRationale: AIS is a reasonably common acronym while Ais appears to have no acronym meanings and two primary word meanings, one being the mentioned North American indigenous people and the other being a part of the playing environment of Real tennis. Under the circumstances, it seems appropriate to not redirect Ais to AIS but rather utilize the title for a more specific purpose, namely as the title for the indigenous people article. --User:Ceyockey (talk to me) 00:50, 8 June 2006 (UTC)
I'm not sure this tribe is important enough to warrant going against WP:TLA. —Nightstallion (?) 09:15, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Clean-up suggestion: in-line page number references[edit]

The page number references in-line seem out of character for Wikipedia and it is not clear in many cases which of the several references a specific page reference refers to. I recommend these be cleaned up in some way. User:Ceyockey (talk to me) 00:22, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

I worked on this about one month after I started editing, so my citation style was still kind of rough. The page numbers all refer to the Andrews and Andrews edition of Jonathan Dickinson's Journal. I'll try to get to this in a day or two. -- Donald Albury(Talk) 02:09, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
Redid the page number references. The other references still need to be tied into specific statements, however. -- Donald Albury 13:56, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Source Please[edit]

Dear sir:

PLease could you provide the source for the following excerpt from Ais (tribe)?

By 1743, when the Spanish established a mission among them, the Ais numbers were declining due to slave raids, disease and rum. The Ais were all but gone from the area by 1760. Some remained on the Island of John in the Indian River.[citation needed]

Thank you

Greetings from Cape Canaveral[edit]

I visited and enjoyed reading your page. You all have done a terrific job with it. Very inspiring. I added our link for Alvaro_Mexia's diplomatic mission to it and have some more information on the Ais Indians I'd like to add later on. Be sure to write on my Talk page if you have any suggestions or comments.--Ourhistory153 (talk) 16:34, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

Invite to Viva Florida 500[edit]

I'd like to invite fellow Wikipedians interested in Florida history to join in our new project page for celebrating our state's 500th anniversay at Viva_Florida_500 Please review and join in getting this project off the ground. It's more than just about Ponce de Leon and his landing it is also about other cultures and what new content we can bring into Wiki such as add new information about the Native Cultures that were here when this period of discovery began.--Ourhistory153 (talk) 14:22, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Use more sources[edit]

Numerous references are listed, but most cites are from Dickinson's Journal. It would be good to use material from more recent archeological and other research, if available.Parkwells (talk) 18:16, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
