In your close, you missed the fact the suggested redirect target was Delaware (band) not Delaware. I've fixed that, but you may want to modify your closing statement. Yngvadottir (talk) 15:20, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
- Thanks, I will, and my apologies for the brain fail. --j⚛e deckertalk 15:44, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
Chase Iron Eyes page deletion
Hi Joe Decker,
Chase Iron Eyes' page was deleted on the 22nd of September and I believe that he holds enough credible and notable credentials to have a page on Wikipedia. Chase is an up and coming leader of the Lakota people and he has invested his heart into helping his people. He is a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation and graduated from the University of North Dakota with his B.A. in Political Science and Indian Studies. He then went on to attend and graduate from the University of Denver Strum College of Law. Chase is a spokesperson for the Black Hills Treaty Council, he spearheaded the fundraising effort to buy back the sacred site of Pe' Sla in the Black Hills. He is a board member and South Dakota counsel for the Lakota People's Law Project, he started Last Real Indians. He was the 2012 recipient of the Native Nation Rebuilder for the Bush Foundation Fellowship, and the list goes on and on and on. If you don't feel that there was sufficient reference to Chase's accomplishments and achievements, please give me the opportunity to list all of the references that I have since compiled.
- Hi Kimberlywein,
- I made an attempt last week to dig up what I could, and while he has been quoted many times, and while he has been mentioned in regards to his LPLP work many times, there are not multiple, reliable, independent pieces which provide in-depth coverage of him that I can find, and that makes meeting our confusing inclusion criteria difficult. The specific bars we mean by this words can be a bit difficult to navigate, I've tried to explain them in plain English at User:Joe Decker/IsThisNotable.
- At this point I am unable to restore the article on my own, but I don't have the final say, either. The next step to appeal this is to ask for review at our deletion review process, and I will have no complaints if you do so, my only concern here is getting the right answer under our policies. I sincerely wish you the best of luck. Best regards, --j⚛e deckertalk 04:29, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
