Traditional culture[edit]

The second paragraph of this section describes Piscataway villages as company. What does this term mean? Folklore1 (talk) 19:45, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Maryland state recognition[edit]

Several Piscataway tribes have been granted state recognition from Maryland, so the article should be updated. http://www.somdnews.com/article/20120110/NEWS/701109973/1074/o-8217-malley-signs-order-recognizing-3-piscataway-tribes&template=southernMaryland

Proposing name change[edit]

I would like to propose changing this article to Piscataway people, since it is about the ethnic group, Pisctaway, not specific political entities, which the term "tribe" implies. Cheers, -Uyvsdi (talk) 21:47, 12 August 2012 (UTC)Uyvsdi

Oh well, can't do it on my own. -Uyvsdi (talk) 06:30, 19 September 2012 (UTC)Uyvsdi

cleanup[edit]

I started cleaning up this IMHO fairly problematic article, but don't know how much time I can devote to it (certain closed stacks/reference rooms in the Chesapeake Bay area seem necessary but I soon need to go to Chicago on what might be extended family business). I noticed the numerous references to a Sturdivant book, which turned out really to be an article about various Algonkian tribes by Christian Feest, who wasn't mentioned, nor was Alice Ferguson. Plus the later Feest book happened to be missing from my local library's collection, tho I had managed to check it out and read it last month from another library (where it seemed the best of the lot available). Frankly, I learned last weekend more about the politics involved, which might account for some of the article's problems, and which is a mess I don't want to get in, especially since like Feest and Ferguson I'm not of Native American ancestry. I hope someone can do the cleanup if I can't.Jweaver28 (talk) 00:36, 11 December 2013 (UTC)
