peoples of North America
We are Wikipedians who have formed a project to improve, maintain, and organize the information in articles related to Indigenous peoples of the Americas. We hope this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. This page and its subpages contain our suggestions and discussions.
If you would like to help, please introduce yourself on our talk page and add your name as a participant! Or, jump in and expand a stub article with reliable sources. Feel free to ask for help ...
WikiProject Indigenous peoples of North America descended from the WikiProject Ethnic groups.
It covers all information on Indigenous peoples of the Americas available at Wikipedia, with the purpose of providing a unified coordination of all articles, stubs, categories and lists on the topic and closely related subjects.
The aim of WikiProject Indigenous peoples of North America is:
This project aims to encompass all historic, ethnic, and cultural aspects of the many groups collectively described as Indigenous peoples of North America, including Aboriginal peoples in Canada, Kalaallit of Greenland, Native Americans in the United States, and indigenous peoples of Mexico (parts of Mexico within the Mesoamerican culture areas are often excluded from North America).
|We welcome all people of Indigenous, American Indian, Native American, and First Nations heritage reading this page! We hope you enjoy participating in Wikipedia. We are especially happy to have your help in improving the diversity of Wikipedia coverage. Please feel free to leave a note on the talk page of this WikiProject, or at Wikipedia:Systemic bias if you run into problems here. And yes, it is possible to start your own Wikipedia in your own language. We'd be happy to support you in this. (Leave a note if you need help setting up a new language, or with fonts.)|

When WikiProject Ethnic groups began in January 2004, this topic was badly lacking in quantity and quality. There were no uniform criteria regarding ethnic matters to be included in Wikipedia. Today, the situation is very different. As of 2013, Wikipedia contains exhaustive quanitites of information on many ethnic matters, and more resources and information are added daily. Organizing and coordinating this large volume of ethnic information remains a challenging task, and has resulted in the creation of new WikiProjects focused on specific ethnic groups.
As a great deal of work has been already done both within and outside WikiProject Ethnic groups, the task ahead looks less daunting than that it did in 2004, but no less important and immense for that reason.
