Removed infobox[edit]

Naiman
Regions with significant populations
Languages
Naiman subdialect of Southern Mongolian dialect
Religion
Tibetan Buddhism, Shamanism, Atheism
Related ethnic groups
Mongols, Southern Mongols

The infobox was merged in from another article. The infobox content seems to focus on the contemporary Chinese descendents, while much of the article text is historical and wider ranging geographically. I think some expert work might be required to combine the contemporary and historical perspectives in this article. TheGrappler (talk) 02:50, 6 September 2013 (UTC)

The article has since been expanded and a better infobox put in place but I think the ancient vs modern issue is still a cause for confusion. For instance the ancient people appear to have been mostly Nestorian Christians while many modern Naimans appear to be Shia muslims, but neither of these religions appear in the infobox!

Modern Southern Mongolian Naimans are not Nestorians and Muslims. Ancientsteppe (talk) 13:54, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
Perhaps their historic affiliations should be listed in the infobox or something? The bulk of the page, and incoming links, seem to concern the ancient people, yet the infobox focuses on the modern people who have quite different characteristics. I think that's unduly confusing.

Religion[edit]

The start to this section is: "By the time they were conquered by Genghis Khan most of the Naimans were Christians but still not found any archaeological finds to prove it." This sentence is a bit confusing. I believe it is supposed to say something like "It is believe that of the Naimans were Christina at the time they were conquered by Genghis Khan. However, there is no archaeological evidence to support this claim." but I don't have the original source. Also, this is a bit of an awkward way to begin the section.
