The article on the San should not be called Bushmen I feel. As the artcle points out the use is mostly derogatory.


The article on the Shatuo Turks has suffered heavily from poor English input in recent months. The claim about the name meaning probably bears checking with historians familiar with chinese etymology of that era. Heaven's knight (talk) 03:39, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Category:Venda people

I don't know how recent sources must be to be of viable reference for an article, but this article could benefit greatly from John Blacking's "How musical is man?" [1], an excellent field study, functional analysis and social analysis of some of the Venda people's music making and cultural context. Abuncha nada (talk) 00:12, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 15 June 2015[edit]

One item should be added to this list of tasks under the 'meta-tasks' section: Resolve the disparity in importance rankings among different ethnic groups. Jarble (talk) 03:22, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Also reduced protection to semi. I feel this is sufficient for this kind of page and allows editors to maintain it. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 08:14, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
