adding[edit]

I am in the process of adding cultural data. --Nan Hannon 03:29, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

nice. thank you for contributing. – ishwar  (speak) 04:47, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

Thank you for your judicious editing. Best, Nan

Adding information on history of research, to explain why Takelma are so poorly-known. Plan to create Agnes Baker Pilgrim page, link to that, and transfer most information about her to that page.--66.241.89.131 16:05, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

I split off the language. --coreyr 07:21, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

Appreciation[edit]

I appreciate the continued efforts to add information to this article, as there is little known about one of the most turbulent time periods in Oregon history. The Rogue River Wars were a devastating reminder of how shifting Indian Policy in the West was unable to control the vast majority of ignorant settlers who decided to take the law into their own hands. While this statement is biased, it is certainly not without merit. To have knowledge is to gain a small semblance of wisdom. Perhaps then, our children can learn the truth of how this great nation was formed on the lands of its first inhabitants.

Takelma peopleTakelma – This was moved without discussion by Kwami on Oct 18 2011. There are no other uses of "Takelma", other than Takelma language. The article was created on May 7 2005 by Ish Ishwar at the title "Takelma", and stood at that title until arbitrarily moved six years later. Removing "people" fulfills CONCISENESS and PRECISION, and also is per Cuchulain's observation of an emergent consensus at the many recent RMs of this kind, that the people are the PRIMARYTOPIC, and need no disambiguation.

  • Support per User:Born2cycle/UNDAB, WP:COMMONNAME and WP:PRIMARYTOPIC. Because reliable sources use the term much more commonly to refer to the people than any of the others uses, it's the common name for this topic and this use is the primary topic for this name, so "people" is unnecessary disambiguation. --B2C 22:03, 9 April 2014 (UTC) provided reasoning --B2C 19:22, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Support, because the sources use "Takelma" to mean the people. --SmokeyJoe (talk) 05:11, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
