Nomination of List of honorary Native Americans for deletion
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.
Harriet Maxwell Converse. There were tons of copyvios I had to cut. The sources seem to be all non-Native, and the degree of misinformation in some cases makes me think no fact-checking was ever done (including by PBS). Cutting the page-long copyvios took care of some of the problems, but not all. Need some Seneca or related eyes on this. - CorbieV ☊ ☼ 00:03, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

New Page Creation: Aboriginal Literature in Canada
Hey everyone! My teammates and I are in the process of creating a new Wikipedia article entitled "Aboriginal Literature in Canada". We plan to focus on notable authors and award winning texts. We may also include the literary history of Aboriginal literature. Any feedback, suggestions, and/or advice would be much appreciated.

- I'd like to note that this user's concurrent post of the same information at WP:CANTALK has sparked some discussion about the fact that while indigenous is now fairly clearly the preferred adjective for the groups covered by this project, we still have a considerable number of Canadian-related articles which are still (sometimes even in their page titles) using the increasingly deprecated older term aboriginal. Accordingly, we'd like to initiate a project of getting the affected articles switched over to indigenous instead, if possible — does anybody have any advice on how to go about it?

- The article is now live. Instead of the previously mentioned, "Aboriginal Literature in Canada," we decided to go with "Indigenous Literature in Canada" to support the current shift in terminology. We're welcoming any feedback, advice, or source recommendations. Thanks in advance!

Indigenous Wikipedia edit-a-thon
This article has long suffered from a lack of Native eyes. It's becoming an issue again as links to Native perspectives and longstanding sources are being removed. - CorbieV ☊ ☼ 00:26, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
