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)
Yakima is used by non-natives: Yakama by the Yakama people. 220.127.116.11 05:30, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
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)
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
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)

I am making a suggestion to give more information on the Yakama language
The Spanish translation of this article contains significantly more information, including a section on Yakama culture. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 02:34, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
