Untitled[edit]

Almost every word in this article is not about the Algonkins themselves, but the wider Algonkian linguistic phylum. I'm therefore going to move it all there and starting more or less from scratch here. QuartierLatin1968 20:17, 26 Oct 2004 (UTC)

What to do with the Stock paragraph[edit]

Argh, I leave this article for a few months and the same issue's cropped up again! The whole paragraph about "Algonquin Stock" is really about Algonquian peoples. The Algonquins are one such people. Honestly! QuartierLatin1968 08:22, 17 Jan 2005 (UTC)

It seems that, outside Wikipedia, there is a fair amount of currency to the usage of "Algonquin" to refer to the larger group. For example, the insert you say is wrong referred to "Algonquin stock", but a Yahoo! search for that phrase finds the Catholic Encyclopedia and several other sites in which it is used in the broader sense: [1], [2], etc.
One source acknowledges the common usage of the term: "The Algonkian Indian, or as it is popularly known Algonquin, population ranged along the middle to northern Atlantic coastline." [3] I've inserted a sentence takng a similar approach. It will help clarify the terms for the reader -- and, as a practical matter, it may lessen the likelihood that the same problem will crop up again in this article.

Survey of Anishinaabe-related articles[edit]

User:Leo1410 have begun a survey of all thing associated with the Anishinaabe peoples. Please visit (and possibly add, edit) to Wikipedia:WikiProject_Indigenous_peoples_of_North_America/Anishinaabe, or from there create a new article. Miigwech CJLippert 05:39, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

Plagiarism in History section[edit]

I just ran a search on a random sentence from the article, and I found one page with an almost identical sentence. The sentence is: "The first group of Algonquian that the French encountered were the Kichesipirini who, because their village was located on an island in the Ottawa River, were called 'La Nation de l'Ilse.'" It came from here (look under Names). --IanTheMacFan 01:41, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

It actually shows up in many places other than in Tolatsga:
Manataka, RootsWeb, and First Nations Environmental Network.

"related groups" info removed from infobox[edit]

For dedicated editors of this page: The "Related Groups" info was removed from all {{Infobox Ethnic group}} infoboxes. Comments may be left here. Ling.Nut 23:04, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Religions section[edit]

I'm concerned the "Religions" section on the side is incorrect. Even though Europeans brought different religious faith such as Christianity, thousands of reliable sources show that Amerindians (including Algonquins) had and still have their own beliefs. I suggest this section to be updated or deleted. — Enigma55 (talkemail) 06:05, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

Updated: I guess I'll be bold. The section in question was deleted.

Assessment[edit]

I have assessed this as Start Class, as it contains a fair amount of detail and organization, but requires clean up, more referencing and in-line citations. I have assessed this as mid importance, as I believe that this topic plays a strong role in the understanding of Canada. Cheers, CP 14:35, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

Culture section[edit]

Rather than focusing on Algonquin culture, the section is dominated by descriptions of of European crackpots and their mystical mumbo jumbo. The in-line specification of highlights from Peat's CV (which I'm sure is quite impressive) is one of the hallmarks of fringe pseudoscience. This whole angle on the Algonquin doesn't belong here. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 4.154.253.194 (talk) 15:41, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

This paragraph isn't about Algonquin culture. It's a report of some one's impression of some Algonquins' mode of thought. Whether or not Peat wrote knowledgable and authoratatively about Algonquin culture somewhere else, this block quote is about Western philosophy. Quantum philosophy. I think the article is better off without it. -Haikon 11:45, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Pronounciation[edit]

Could we work on adding some pronunciation help with some of the foreign words in this article? Abhillman (talk) 23:13, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

With Algonquin? With English? With non-Algonquin/non-English? CJLippert (talk) 16:38, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Kickapoo people in Mexico[edit]

There are Kickapoo people who ended up in the Mexican states of Coahuila and Sonora; and, therefore, the article limiting their existence to Canada and the United States is wrong. http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kikap%C3%BA — Preceding unsigned comment added by 140.147.236.194 (talk) 18:48, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

The Kickapoo are a distinct nation of Algonquian people, meaning they speak an Algonquian language. This article is about the Algonquin, another distinct nation of Algonquian people. Notice that Algonquin and Algonquian are not the same. Leo1410 (talk) 17:52, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
