There's very little here. I'd like to see this merged to Micmac. That article doesn't have a folklore section, but it sure seems like adding one would be appropriate. Thoughts? Friday (talk) 16:02, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

ther3 will be more here. shortly. please dont ruin my workm, i dont have much time toda y or tomorrow. as for the sources, i tried to state the source, which is the book, stories from the six worlds, but aparently no one accepted this.Gimmiet 16:09, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

No one is ruining your work. You wrote "It is compairible to Wendigo and sasquatch." In addition to being a fragment, this requires sourcing. You wrote "Many, but not all Mi'kmaq ledgends can be found in Stories From The Six Worlds, a collection of ledgends collected by taking dictation from Mi'kmaq elders." This did not source any claims about Jenu, it's just a fact plopped into the article. Watch my current edit for how you source things, as opposed to spew facts into articles.Hipocrite - «Talk» 16:32, 6 October 2005 (UTC)
After doing only the most cursory research, I was able to determine that Jenu were not human, rather hairy giants and that the plural was "Jenua." Hipocrite - «Talk» 17:22, 6 October 2005 (UTC)
In that case, I don't think we need a source for them being similiar to Sasquatch. Not sure on the Wendigo, though. Friday (talk) 17:30, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

Stories from ...[edit]

Where the legends dictated, or recorded and transcribed? Rich Farmbrough 23:37, 8 October 2005 (UTC)

dictated by the elders, then transcrib4ed from recordings.Gimmiet 17:19, 9 October 2005 (UTC)

that last anon edit[edit]

i cant change it, but that last anons edit says dont remove the merge tag, but that wasnt what they are hanging, id like spomeone to undo that basedonthe vfacvt that such a mismatch is vandaliscious in nature.Gimmiet 18:50, 9 October 2005 (UTC)

A good way to help ensure that this article doesn't get merged would be to expand it significantly, providing detailed information specifically about Jenu. As it currently stands it's just a two-line stub without enough context to show whether it might ever grow beyond that. If the current article is all that there is to say about Jenu then it's probably not worth having a separate article like this. If there's lots more to say, on the other hand, I doubt a merge would be done. Bryan 22:13, 9 October 2005 (UTC)
