Sense[edit]

The second sentence in the "Life" section doesn't really contain any meaning, but it is discernible that those presented are his parents.

image[edit]

Thanks for inserting the picture, but this shabby image is just about everywhere. How about finding a better one. Tmesipt 2/7/04

Minor corrections on 2.8.04 Tmesipt.

I would like to add a map of the California claims case. I do not know how to do this. Help? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Isuttion (talkcontribs) 16:47, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Ishi[edit]

"In 2003, the stepbrothers Clifton and Karl Kroeber published a book of essays on Ishi's story, which they co-edited, called, Ishi in Three Centuries. This is the first scholarly book on Ishi to contain essays by Native American writers and academics."

The article doesn't explain who Ishi is, yet he seems to be quite important (picture with A. Kroeber, book by C. and K. Kroeber, working with A. Kroeber, ...) and/ or well known in the USA (?). I've read the article on Ishi afterwards, but I suggest that his significance is explained in one or two sentences before the article goes on how A. Kroebers sons wrote a book about him. -- 78.52.167.219 (talk) 23:22, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
