Nomination of List of honorary Native Americans for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article List of honorary Native Americans is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of honorary Native Americans until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article.

New Article Spelling[edit]

I'd like to see a stub article about this:

Wonchala - A Lakota idea that: We're thrown into a world of forces that we can't control, of powers that are much greater than us, and that we have this awareness that we're just small little humans beings, with so little influence on what's going on around us — when we start from there we then realise the it's up to us to make meaning and purpose out of this crazy world, to make something happen and create a story that is heroic, and takes the chaos into which we're throne and turns it into something beautiful, something that reduces suffering, something that crates pattern and order, something that we're proud to be apart of.

I think the spelling of "Wonchala" needs correcting? I tried searching online for the right spelling, though couldn't find anything. Does anyone know what the correct spelling is?

Another AfD[edit]

Native Art Department International. I'm leaning "delete" on this one, actually, but the promoter of the article is quick to accuse the AfD nominator of bias and I sincerely do not think that's the issue, I think the article is on a topic of possibly dubious notability.

Conferederate template[edit]

This template just was added to several tribes' pages:


It's not well researched (for example, "Choctow") and at least the Muscogee Creeks traditionalists fought for the Union against the Confederacy. Plus it's only a 4-year blip in the tribes' multicentury histories. Unfortunately, the main people who pay attention to Civil War history are pro-Confederacy and overstate its important to other groups. The Osage Nation declared war on Japan prior to the US in WWII, but the Osage Nation wouldn't be included on a list of WWII Allies. Ahalenia (talk) 16:52, 14 September 2017 (UTC)Ahalenia

Wikipedian in Residence at the University of Pittsburgh[edit]

Your support is solicited for the Project Grant that can be seen here. Part of the grant-making process requires notification of those who would like to support this project. I am the potential grantee and believe that this position will make a significant contribution to many projects. Little to no information now exits on those Indigenous Peoples in the Western Pennsylvania region. Other projects will benefit from the Wikimedia grant. Some of these are Wikipedia:WikiProject Ethnic groups, Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red, Wikipedia:WikiProject Pennsylvania, Wikipedia:WikiProject United States History, Wikipedia:WikiProject Military history/American Revolutionary War task force, Wikipedia:WikiProject Pittsburgh, and Wikipedia:WikiProject African diaspora. Some of these WikiProjects are currently semi-active and would benefit from more contributions from those in the Western Pennsylvania region and the University of Pittsburgh. The University of Pittsburgh has significant archival and historical content related to gaps to these WikProjects. Thank you for your consideration.

Need more eyes. Page has been moved, and now new editors want to make substantial changes, including to basic definition. - CorbieV 17:17, 1 October 2017 (UTC)
