Untitled[edit]

Spelt and spelled are irregular verbs. After I edited it I went on a bit of hunt for references on their use, and it seems their is a difference in use between the U.S. and U.K.. Being Australian I have a bias for the U.K. English, but I understand that this is a predominantly U.S. site, so I have no issue with the revert. It was interesting to find out the different direcions the two forms of English have taken. --Randolph 00:48, 5 May 2005 (UTC)

The Boodewaadamiiyag are divided between those communities in Canada and those communities in the United States, with majority in the United States. However, due to this split and British English orthographies being quite common in both Wisconsin and Michigan, I don't think the issue of English orthography should even be an issue, as long as the article is consistent in its orthographic scheme.

Since this article is on the American Indian tribe, the standard American English "spelled" should be used, in my opinion. --BaronLarf 01:35, May 5, 2005 (UTC)

Survey of Anishinaabe-related articles[edit]

We 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.

History - Leaders - reorganization of sections[edit]

This week, I plan to reorganize the history and leaders section. I've got additional information for the history section - relation migration and want to split history into the same segments that are used in the Leaders section. Then, I want to move the leaders lists into the appropriate part of the history with a subsection for leaders:

2. History
2.1 French period (1615–1763)

  • 2.1.1 Leaders

2.2 English period (1763–1783)

  • 2.2.1 Leaders
  • 2.3 United States treaty period (1783–1830)
  • 2.2.1 Milwaukee Potawatomi
  • 2.2.2 Chicago Potawatomi
  • 2.2.3 Des Plaines and Fox River Potawatomi
  • 2.2.4 Illinois River Potawatomi
  • 2.2.5 Kankakee River (Iroquois and Yellow Rivers) Potawatomi
  • 2.2.6 St. Joseph and Elkhart Potawatomi
  • 2.2.7 Tippecanoe and Wabash River Potawatomi
  • 2.2.8 Fort Wayne Potawatomi

2.4 American removal period (1830–1840)

  • 2.4.1 Early Migrations
  • 2.4.2 Migrations west
  • 2.4.3 Migrations to Upper Canada
  • 2.4.4 Migrations to Wisconsin and Michigan
  • 2.4.5 Non-migration peoples

Thus, leaders will be with the time period information.Chris Light (talk) 16:56, 8 March 2015 (UTC)
