The Native Americans Project invites members to organize in "teams" based on their more specific interest. They are both topical (e.g., Cherokee) and functional (e.g., Categorization). Please see the list of the teams below, add your name and ID (signed with ~~~~and who to contact if you have any queries:
Native Americans Categorization Team
This team, in collaboration with the Categorization project, reviews and updates category usage pertaining to profiles of Native Americans.
- This team is currently empty; we are seeking a liaison between Categorization and the Native Americans project. Contact Jillaine Smith if you're interested.
- Lorraine O'Dell I hope to work on profiles for individuals in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania and I'm very interested and opinionated about categories (retired librarian) and would like to do free-space pages for tribes and bands.
Resources & Integration Team
If you enjoy researching, locating and organizing resources related to Native Americans, this is the team for you. As you come across project resources relating to Native Americans in general or a specific Tribe, add them to our reliable Native American resources page.
Do you live in or near an area where Native Americans live or lived? Have the time to do some research for other WikiTreers? This might be a good place for you to contribute to the Native Americans project.
You might be able to answer project-related questions posted to G2G with the native_american or native_americans tag. If you don't know the answer, point to a person or project who might know the answer. If the person needs a little profile help, show them how to do whatever it is they are stumbling on.

Myths & Legends Team
Coordinator: Kathryn Parks There are quite a few fictional, fraudulent, or mythical people who have been included as Native American or married to a Native American. If you would like to work with this team in identifying and correcting those profiles, contact one of the coordinators and let them know you would be willing to help.
Profile Improvers Team
The goal of the Native Americans Project is to raise Native American profiles to the highest standard possible and make Native American profiles the best that they can be. The PIP Team is on the front line of the coordinated effort to achieve this. Whether it be through sourcing, profiling, connecting or data-doctoring, profilers are making contributions to improve Native American profiles all the time. In addition to this, the Native American Project manages a number of profiles where extra focus is given. Further still are the PPPs (Project Protected Profiles). The criteria for these is that the profile must be at least 200 years old or notable, and it must be contentious or duplicated. If you would like to work on this team, contact Jillaine Smith.
