Native American/First Peoples Project Sticker Change

+7 votes

As you may or may not be aware, changes have been made in the use of Project Boxes and Project Stickers. In future, Project Boxes will only be used for profiles that are Project Protected and managed by the Project. All other profiles connected with the Project will have the Project Sticker.

In a short while, Edit bot will change all Native American and First Peoples profiles to NON-PPP status with Stickers only. All profiles needing Project Protection should be re-requested after Edit bot does her thing. 

If you want to make the change yourself on profiles that you manage, use the Project Sticker template {{Native American Sticker|tribe=Tribe}} where “Tribe” is replaced by the name of the tribe. This template should be placed below the line == Biography == . Project Boxes should be removed for the present time.

If you currently have the Native Americans Badge or First Peoples Badge, it would be helpful if you were to make sure you are listed as a Participant on the project page – either First Peoples or Native American. As the new leader, it would be helpful to me to know who is actively working on one or more of the projects, or if you are interested in becoming more active.

Hi Shirley, I am trying to make a sensible list for British Columbia First Peoples category - the current list is a strange mix of First Nations, bands, communities and even Treaty research groups. As most individual 'bands' are affilitated with a  Nation or Tribal Council, it makes some sense to me to use one of these terms as the sub-category, and then First Nation, and the smallest group being band or community.  My list is in early stages, but I will share it when it begins to make sense, so others can comment.

It is great that so many people are taking an interest in the categories and naming for First Peoples projects.

Looking forward to seeing your list when you have it more complete. It can be difficult to have a list that makes sense when there are so many different groups.

Sharon also sent me an email about the inaccuracy of the sticker for Canadian use. The word 'tribe' is uncommon, nay almost never used in Canada. It would be helpful if the phrase was edited and replaced with "nation" instead.

Hannah, thanks for passing on this suggestion. I have changed the Sticker and Project Box so that wherever "tribe" appeared it will now read "Nation." Take a look and let me know what you think.
