Spelling[edit]

I've followed this spelling at Shakers (Native American), but what is the basis for it? I've always seen this nation called Yakima, both from native and non-native sources. A citation would be welcome. -- Jmabel | Talk 19:44, August 21, 2005 (UTC)

The name was changed in 1994 to reflect the native pronounciation. Yakama Nation Cultural Heritage Center. Others that use Yakama include Columbia River Inter-tribal Fish Commission, Governor's Office of India Affairs, National Indian Gaming Commission.
Or you can call them and ask: http://www.goia.wa.gov/directory/pdf/YAKAM.pdf Cheers! Cacophony 06:41, August 22, 2005 (UTC)
Thanks. "Yakima" is ahead about 20-1 on the web, but of course most of those references are to the city. I see that most of the institutions closest to the tribe or nation are, indeed, using "Yakama". -- Jmabel | Talk 21:06, August 22, 2005 (UTC)

Yakima is used by non-natives: Yakama by the Yakama people. 71.112.66.222 05:30, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Categories/stub tags[edit]

This article is tagged as an Indigenous languages stub, but the article is on the Yakama people. If anything, it show have an ethnic group stub tag, and an article on the language should be a separate article. Same thing with the categorization. It should be categorized under Native Americans rather than Native American languages. Of course, this article needs to be expanded, so hopefully whoever does the expansion takes these factors into consideration and fixes them at that time.--Rockero 00:08, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

Removed text[edit]

I removed the following: "The Yakama Name for their language is "Ichi Skiin Sinwit Ki", and this usage is preferred in publications discussing the traditional language." If true, please cite. Zero Google hits, no citation, from user with no other contributions, and the resemblance to "itchy skin" particularly makes me suspect a hoax. But it could just possibly be real, in which case please supply a citation. - Jmabel | Talk 05:35, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Kittitas (tribe) needed[edit]

I was curious when Kittitas went to a two-item disambiguation page; I'm not sure whether the current article covers the Kittitas, i.e. as the Upper Yakama. I dno't know enough about them to write so much as anything more than the rawest of stubs; perhaps someone here could do better? Found this one source in googlebooks via a googlesearch for "Kittitas Native American tribe".Skookum1 (talk) 17:09, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Yakama peopleYakama – target is redirect to current title redirected by kwami on Jun 8 2010 to "Yakama Tribe", moved to current title by Usvdi on Sept 17 2013 citing "This article is about ethnic Yakama; the federally recognized Nation includes other ethnic groups" but without regard to WP:UNDAB. Then immediately redirected to Yakama Indian Reservation which is about the rez and not so much about the government. There is no reason why Yakama had to be fiddled with at all, because Yakima, Washington is spelled differently. Yakima redirects there, there is a Yakima (disambiguation) which is have just amended to include the people and the rez, even though Yakama Nation there is a redirect to the rez article.

  • Oppose until the issue is addressed properly. These should be discussed at a centralized location.
There was a discussion once on whether the ethnicity should have precedence for the name, and it was decided it shouldn't. That could be revisited. But it really should be one discussion on the principle, not thousands of separate discussions at every ethnicity in the world over whether it should be at "X", "Xs", or "X people". — kwami (talk) 12:32, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Support per nom. An identified people should be the primary topic of a term absent something remarkable standing in the way. bd2412 T 02:40, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
