Need a citation for statement that Portuguese is more spoken than Kimbundu among Mbundu people. See also note in discussion of Languages of Angola. --A12n 23:32, 17 October 2006 (UTC)


There is a precolonial history of Angola wiki already. The section in this wiki does not cover Angola as a whole, however, but just the Mbundu-related historyKohir-gabr (talk) 16:25, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was moved. See also the move from Southern Mbundu people to Ovimbundu. --BDD (talk) 18:23, 8 October 2012 (UTC) (non-admin closure)

Northern Mbundu peopleAmbundu – The Northern Mbundu people are now generally called Ambundu, especially by Africanists. --Bejnar (talk) 04:20, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

The old term "Mbundu" although it was used for these people and their language (Kimbuntu) is ambiguous. Calling these people "Ambundu" rather than "Northern Mbundu" is slightly less confusing and is closer to what they call themselves. Their language is generally known as "Kimbundu" (language code kmb) rather than "North Mbundu language". Article titles should based upon those terms which reliable English-language sources use to refer to the article's subject. See Wikipedia:Article titles#Deciding on an article title. After the move "Northern Mbundu people" will still be available to readers as a redirect. --Bejnar (talk) 04:20, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Agree. "Northern Mbundu" is in fact old-fashioned and out of date. Being myself an Africanist working constantly on Angola, I must say I have not come across that expression for ages. -- Aflis (talk) 08:56, 1 October 2012 (UTC)
