Population[edit]

Can someone please update the Northern Cheyenne population. it reads as 3542 in the combined population total and is referenced as 9945 in the text.. thnksThe Northern Cheyenne Tribe reports 9,945 enrolled tribal members as of 2011. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Seger77 (talkcontribs) 07:34, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Fixed using the Northern Cheyenne website as source Jonpatterns (talk) 10:05, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

Battle of Washita River[edit]

Could the author of this great page PLEASE take a look at the account of the Battle of Washita River. It is an absolute disgrace, (it relies on Custer's own account!) and I think you are obviously the best one to sort it out. Thanks. User:86.128.122.91 01:08, 16 October 2005 (UTC)

Why don't you write something? There have been 30 to 40 contributors to this article.

WikiDon 02:03, 16 October 2005 (UTC)


Hi, I changed title 18 century/Indian Wars to 19 century/Indian wars because it seemed to me that it is about 19. not 18. century since all years mentioned are 18XX which means 19 century. I don`t know much about native american history so maybe I got something wrong, please check it and revert my edit if I was wrong

Cheyenne patricia carmen ortiz[edit]

Is this the full title of the Cheyenne nation, or just a mistake? Gyre 01:30, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

Number of Deaths at Sand Creek[edit]

It is my understanding the number of Deaths was more like 400-500. This number was later altered to about 30 to hide the obvious guilt of the parties invilved. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 67.180.32.6 (talk) 04:31, 18 April 2007 (UTC).

400 to 500 was an exaggeration made by Chivington. About 200 is more real. Fred Talk 01:04, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Cheyenne and Arapaho[edit]

This article doesn't state that the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes are currently united as a single nation? That's a serious omission. Badagnani 21:46, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

It is and the whole question of how to write the two articles Cheyenne and Arapaho is difficult. Fred Talk 01:05, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
For anyone looking for the article, it's at Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes. -Uyvsdi (talk) 00:41, 21 January 2011 (UTC)Uyvsdi

Cheyenne and Arapaho[edit]

The Cheyenne and Arapaho Nation does not exist. The ceremonial ways are totally different and there has never been a Cheyenne/Arapaho Cermony. The US government put them on the same reservation because they were afraid of an uprising by the Cheyenne. The Cheyenne Tribe of Oklahoma hold there own separate ceremonies and are the Southern part of a greater United Cheyenne Nation. The omission is not serious as Arapahos are a totally different nation that include their Northern Arapaho brothers of Wyoming. seger77@hotmail.com 17:15, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

"related groups" info removed from infobox[edit]

For dedicated editors of this page: The "Related Groups" info was removed from all {{Infobox Ethnic group}} infoboxes. Comments may be left on the Ethnic groups talk page. Ling.Nut 20:19, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

It seems to have been restored now, which is good. Fred Talk 01:07, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

"Custerwest" disrupting Washita article[edit]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Washita_River

See talk page and history. He dissmisses the official American Military History[1] as "a simple website, it's not serious", removes all the findings of CMH (because "The army center of military history isn't filled of military historians about the Washita.").

He also calls me "the idiot"[2], and "jerk", "Damn...jackass", "ignorant monkey", "damn idiot", "stupid bastard", and threatens to "kick" my "damn ass". [3]. If someone cares enough to get him blocked, thanks. Also, one would check his other edits, if any. --HanzoHattori 19:08, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

Cheyenne article..."are a plains" group[edit]

I believe this native American group migrated out onto the plains from Minnesota area. Needs corrction. 66.224.2.131 (talk) 22:48, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

That is true (as the article states), but they left Minnesota centuries ago, following Erect Horns' vision. They have exemplified Plains Horse culture for the last two centuries, and today both Cheyenne tribes are located on the Plains: Montana and Oklahoma. -Uyvsdi (talk) 22:57, 12 May 2009 (UTC)Uyvsdi

Pronounciation[edit]

As an Australian, I had no idea on how to pronounce the name of this people properly until I consulted with an American friend. Initially I though it must have been Chain-knee, like the former Bush administration vice president. I have meant no disrespect in my edit to the front page to include the prononciation "Shy-Anne" and I believe this will aid international visitors to the wikipedia site. Please correct my pronounciation if incorrect, or even add the international pronounciation symbols, but please don't simply revert my post, I believe it to be a valuable contribution to the front page.60.240.14.140 (talk) 15:24, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

Continued contentious reverting from Isaac Rabinovich[edit]

User Isaac Rabbinovich seems to be edit warring and reverting his edits in simply for the sake of reverting. This is not constructively editing the article so much as it is looking for trouble. The drive-by tags he is adding, with no explanation here on the talk page, are requesting information on dates that are already given in practically every section of the article INCLUDING the lede section. Therefore I removed them once with this explanation. Adding them in a second time seems like willful obtuseness. I am tired of reverting this editor's continued messing with this article. Til Eulenspiegel /talk/ 00:46, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

Agreed. Will keep an eye on this page. Just tried to clean up a lot of redundant and some speculative statements. -Uyvsdi (talk) 03:39, 4 July 2013 (UTC)Uyvsdi
