Untitled[edit]

This is rubbish.

And misinformation.

There is no such swastika, Aryan religion called "Vainak".

This is taken directly from World of Warcraft style imagery.

The moderator of the Wikipedia, please verify this "Vainakh" thing for accuracy.

205.189.194.249, I believe your comment about World of Warcraft is causally backwards. The writers at Blizzard, and indeed any high fantasy author, base their fictional mythologies primarily on mythological concepts that already exist.--Anthonzi (talk) 22:57, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

Introduction[edit]

The sentence "A special place in the faith Vainakhs held pear, they developed many rituals to serve particular trees" appears to be in error but as I have no knowledge of this subject I'm reluctant to try to make sense it myself. Please could someone edit this. Thanks in advance, MikeEagling (talk) 00:09, 21 June 2010 (UTC)


This article is conspicuously lacking in historical information! Such as: About what time did this mythology develop? When were its stories told or written down? Is Vainakh mythology part of a living religion? If not, when did this religion become extinct?```

When did it develop? We don't know, polytheistic religions tend to develop continuously, so we can't say. Living religion? Well, sort of, if you count the animistic influences it has upon Chechen Islam. Otherwise, no. --Yalens (talk) 15:30, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

pagan?[edit]

usually derogatory. Leaving for now for lack of a better idea. In here to clean up some low-hanging-fruit language problems. Elinruby (talk) 00:58, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

Jaimukha handbook on reflist twice[edit]

these seem to be slighly different editions however; but since the footnotes for the other entry matched what I was looking at in mine I left this for someone more familiar with the field to sort out once I noticed it. The list of deities is *not* a wholesale import from that book; there is quite a bit there that the handbook does not say. Elinruby (talk)

lede: pls clarify relationship between vainakh and nakh[edit]

it's a bit confusing. Leaving as I do not understand it to fix it. Elinruby (talk) 00:34, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

Vainakh are chechens and ingush people, nakh people (which are speaking nakh languages) are vainakh and also several other nakh ethnic groups (kist people for example) Cathry (talk) 05:05, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

removed text from Sata entry[edit]

"to hell" -- not at all supported by the sources I am looking at. Possibly exists in other versions, though, or could also be a translation glitch/typo (help?). The account in "shamanic" reference says she protected him though, so please provide your own reference if you feel this text is correct Elinruby (talk) 01:58, 5 December 2015 (UTC)
