Hi Susan,

I would like to discuss this with you off wiki. DM me at @voxpopulare and I will give you my email address so we can communicate in more detail in a more private manner before communicating publicly.

A barnstar for you![edit]

The Writer's Barnstar
For trying to prevent losing featured articles, I award you this barnstar. There's no reason people should still care at all about improving Wikipedia, and yet there are people like you who want to make the internet a better place. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 22:10, 25 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Bde Ota Othunwe[edit]

In the reference you source Lerner as the provider of the orthography used, but it's actually provided by the Dakhóta Iápi Okhódakičhiye.  oncamera  (talk page) 21:26, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I copied the words from the book I cited. I don't know what the publisher used to get them. If you are certain that's what Lerner uses then please go ahead and change the ref (and remember to remove the old one). Thanks. -SusanLesch (talk) 21:57, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I wonder if this app is related to this one, which seems to have disappeared at the university. Thank heavens for the Internet Archive. -SusanLesch (talk) 23:02, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
The same Dakota teachers developed both dictionaries. The new app is much better.  oncamera  (talk page) 01:00, 31 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Better if you like phones I guess. I prefer web browsers; they give URLs, useful for citation. How would I cite this app in the situation before us? -SusanLesch (talk) 23:01, 12 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Creation stories[edit]

I saw the edit you removed and thought I would inform you that I am a Dakota person and I know multiple creation stories that exist outside of Bdóte and even Minnesota. Don't act like you own the article just because other editors have suggested minor changes to keep it on topic.  oncamera  (talk page) 00:58, 31 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I don't own this article any more than anyone else does. Pardon me for questioning "What creation story exists at Mille Lacs? The Mdewakanton are named after the lake, but didn't mean it's a creation story." (Wouldn't you have??) We're OK now I think. I'm not Dakota but am trying hard to represent them (you!) well. -SusanLesch (talk) 03:06, 31 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Tip of the month:

  • Use open-access references wherever possible, but a paywalled reliable source
    is better than none, particularly for biographies of living people.
