Cocopah peopleCocopah – The original title of this article was "Cocopah", created on June 67 2002. Almost nine years later, it was moved on May 3, 2011 by Kwami, without comment or discussion. As per closures of similar RMs in recent days by Cuchulainn and others, "consensus has spoken" that the people are the PRIMARYTOPIC, as [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Northern_Tutchone&diff=prev&oldid=603334541 stated by him here re the Northern Tutchone title. Guidelines such as Wikipedia:Article titles#Use commonly recognizable names and the guideline Wikipedia:Naming conventions (ethnicities and tribes) call for this move, as does WP:Conciseness and WP:Precision.

  • Support. The article about the people gets twice as many hits as either the article on the language or the reservation[1][2][3].--Labattblueboy (talk) 13:11, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Support. In cases where the requested move simply eliminates the word "people", and the destination title is already a simple redirect to the current title, it is clear that guidelines favoring both precision and conciseness support the move. Xoloz (talk) 02:21, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
