Theres sort of a big gap there- makes it looks like the article ends. I suppose it has to do with one of the images (as it doesnt exist in the edit window). Any ideas? ~ User:Urukagina

There also seems to be a general gap in information. Maybe a history of the Zunis would be beneficial?

Gutenberg text with illustrations[edit]

Perhaps worth adding some text and pictures from this Project Gutenberg text: The Religious Life of the Zuni Child.--Eloquence* 19:52, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Zuni vs. Zuñi[edit]

By all outward appearances, Zuñi is the correct spelling. Since there are no technical impediments to using the correct spelling for the article title, why is Zuñi instead a redirect here? Shouldn't it be the other way around? Matt Gies 19:11, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

I agree.--BMF81 17:14, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
The name and spelling of Zuñi with the tilde was given to us by the Spanish conquistadores in the 16th century. It is not known how they derived this name. Zuni without the tilde is the English spelling.

Zuni fetishes[edit]

Is there any info on the Zuni fetishes? If there isn't then I'll have to put up what I have to offer. I have a good bit of zuni fetish info that I can add if there isn't any place that already has it.Mattkenn3 22:32, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

Mention of Japanese influence hypothesis[edit]

I think this is warranted. The evidence seems quite convincing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:14, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, the whole reason I came to this page was to learn more about this theory! Why isn't it mentioned!? I had to search the history to find this, "Nancy Yaw Davis, in the Zuni Enigma, and Gavin Menzies, have suggested that the Zuni share some affinities with the Japanese people, due in part to genetic, linguistic and cultural similarities." How on earth is this not significant!? It's published material by experts!!! (talk) 23:48, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
That Zunis are the descendants of mid-14th century Japanese pilgrims, as put forth by Davis in her book, is an unsubstantiated, fringe theory that has been refuted by Zuni people. Check out Wikipedia:Fringe theories. -Uyvsdi (talk) 19:12, 21 April 2012 (UTC)Uyvsdi
Having not read the book and being aware of much of the popularity of fringe archeology I am aware of the worries. However, people come to wikipedia for more information. Perhaps there should be a page on the fringe theory? Or mention that the Zuni's are subjects of a relatively popular fringe theory? It would be nice to get links to the said Zuni debunking too, as an Asia specialist myself it would be an interesting read. --Shadowy Sorcerer (talk) 19:23, 21 April 2012 (UTC)
How about adding documented history of the Zuni to the article instead? It's not like the article is particularly well-written or complete as it is. -Uyvsdi (talk)Uyvsdi
Heh. That probably should be a higher priority, not that I am in anyway qualified to do it. Though I would be glad to help.--Shadowy Sorcerer (talk) 21:35, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

Oh brother, I just discovered where this sudden interest in this theory is coming from. mentioned it, then someone posted it to Reddit. -Uyvsdi (talk) 21:42, 21 April 2012 (UTC)Uyvsdi

Different or the same[edit]

This: Small oval-shaped stones with pointed ends are set close to one another and side by side. The technique is normally used with turquoise in creating necklaces or rings. Another craft they have... needlepoint. when there's no mention of textiles. Does this intend to refer to sewing or to the description given to fine, small stones in the floral settings?

Imho, it's to do with the jewellery, not stitching, as described here:Needle point -Turquoise cut in long narrow or elongated stones set in delicate bezels is called needle point. Turquoise Jewelry with pear shape cut gems is known as petite point. Gems that have been cut and tightly set and inlaid into silver jewelry is known as “inlay”. This is a skill of intricate small stonework especially with pieces with smaller tightly fitting gems and settings. So I will change it. Manytexts (talk) 23:00, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
