chinook cultural clothes[edit]

Chinook children wore thin dresses.Even boys.It was culture. Believe it or not !!!!!!!!

They wore them to wedding,ceremonies.deaths.and births.Men wore long baggy pants. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.175.181.88 (talk) 22:16, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

They weren't dresses, they were tunics, which was common wear in most socieities for thousands of years; the fabric was the cambium of the red cedar, the garment was called a kalakwhattie, Kalahkwahtie etc (var. spelligns). A dress, for one thing, is tailored; a tunic doesn 't have to be....Skookum1 (talk) 03:55, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Name change?[edit]

This should be Chinook people or Chinook (tribe), not "Chinookan", which should go to a language page (Chinookan language?).Skookum1 (talk) 03:09, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Chinook peopleChinookan peoples – this is not one people but a group of them, not all of them calling themselves "Chinook". Chinook peoples was available but "Chinookan" is more viable because of that self-identification issue e.g. Clatsop, Cathlamet etc. As with other "FOO people" titles, the complication with "people who are FOO" needs addressing, pluralization is the obvious, necessary solution.

  • Oppose until the issue is addressed properly. These should be discussed at a centralized location.
There was a discussion once on whether the ethnicity should have precedence for the name, and it was decided it shouldn't. That could be revisited. But it really should be one discussion on the principle, not thousands of separate discussions at every ethnicity in the world over whether it should be at "X", "Xs", or "X people". — kwami (talk) 12:37, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Support per nom. An identified people should be the primary topic of a term absent something remarkable standing in the way. bd2412 T 02:28, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
