You were apparently one of the last legitimate editors at Dynegy, so I thought you might be interested in this: WP:COIN#Dynegy Kendall-K1 (talk) 01:46, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

2016 CWRU Art&STEM+Feminism Edit-a-Thon[edit]

Case Western's Kelvin Smith Library will be hosting an edit-a-thon on 5 March (11:00-5:00), and I'm looking for a local wikipedian to help out. By chance, would you be interested or know someone who may be? LBonds (talk) 20:11, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

I would be glad to help out! - Tim1965 (talk) 21:36, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

This article needs help[edit]

  • Yeesh... That's an awful article; it's not about the Hill, but about a bunch of Native American reservations nearby and the establishment of the Rocky Boy Reservation. My understanding about Hill 57 is limited. I know that the hill is called Hill 57 because it was used for hillside advertising for "Heinz 57" ketchup. The Native Americans who lived on Hill 57 were a mix of Cree, Chippewa, Métis, and mixed-background (ancestors belonging to all tribes, and to none). They vacated the site when the Rocky Boy reservation was established for them. The hill is used as the launching site for the annual Independence Day events in Great Falls. That's about it... I'll see what I might do. - Tim1965 (talk) 16:47, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
Wow! Awesome repair job! Montanabw(talk)|GO THUNDER! 07:36, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! I've got some more to do, but I'm NOT educated at all about Cree, Métis, or Ojibwe history, and so will need some time to get some books through ILL and time to read them before I expand the section on the Native American presence any further. I've also got some thinking to do about that section. The article needs to be about the hill, not about the Little Shell Band or landless Indians. So I've got to do some thinking and drafting of potential text to see how it should come out. I wish GFPL offered online access to the Tribune or Leader archives. They don't offer Leader stuff at all, and only offer full-text Tribune back to 2002. That completely sucks. (Can I just say that I hate hate hate what Gannett has done to the Trib?) - Tim1965 (talk) 16:09, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
We also have a discussion that is kind of fizzled for lack of worker bees about merging Little Shell Chippewa and Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana. There is no way to avoid a lot of research, I'm pretty good on IPNA stuff in general, but for the specific tribes, I have to hit the books. The Montana Historical Society DOES have some newspaper archives, and I think they loan microfilm too, so... [1] Also ask KingJeff1970 for help, he can probably point you to resources; Montana History Wiki is actually pretty decent and meets most of the RS criteria.

There's also the Little Shell Pembina Band of North America (also known as the Little Shell Band of Chippewa Indians of North Dakota), based in North Dakota. They're a militia group founded by the Delorme family[2] (especially footnotes 6 and 7). They appear to be both a militia group and a criminal enterprise using the Little Shell fight for recognition as a cover for their own nefarious activities. I see that the militia group has already been conflated with the existing, state-recognized Little Shell tribe and with the Turtle Mountain tribe. - Tim1965 (talk) 23:56, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
Oh great, that's probably crap that needs to be removed. Montanabw(talk) 22:56, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
