Consistency in use of Lango/Langi[edit]

This article says "Lango will be used in the text instead of "Langi". Driberg used Lango, not "Langi" in his study "The Lango: A Nilotic Tribe of Uganda (1923)." Kihangire (1957), interviewed Lango elders for his dissertation, and "Langi" is not mentioned in the text, but Lango or Lango people."

Who is Driberg? Who is Kihangire? Why is there a question in the use? Is it because in the Lango language, one says 'one Lango, two Langi'? If the article uses Lango, why is the article name Langi people? Shouldn't this be changed? DBlomgren (talk) 10:03, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
