Untitled[edit]

I feel like this article should be renamed, and have a redirect from Fox and Sac and Fox. The only group to still refer to this tribe as the Sac and Fox are the BIA. They call themselves the Meskwaki and call their settlement the Meskwaki Nation. Kaibab 03:36, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

Language[edit]

There is nothing here about the Meskwaki (mesquaki) language, which is not the same as what the Sauk and Fox of Stroud speak. Kdammers 13:08, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

Rename proposal[edit]

It has been 4 years since Kaibab suggested renaming the article "Meskwaki", and no opposition has been voiced. I agree with Kaibab, Meskwaki is the name they call universally themseleves, and the name they used prior to the French calling them Renards. (However, Sac and Fox should remain a seperate entry, since this is the joint term used by the Feds, rightly or wrongly, to refer to the Sauk and Meskwaki, as described on that page.) So, any objections for changing Fox (tribe) to Meskwaki? If there is no opposition, I will make the change in a week. Thanks, Bill Whittaker (talk) 13:30, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Rename completed. Bill Whittaker (talk) 15:28, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
