Untitled[edit]

Here is a quote from the article:

They are a lively intelligent people, brave fighters and daring hunters, and in their love of songs, music and elocution are superior to many negro races.

We should be a little more careful with some of these articles from 1911. Danny

Not trapped in 1911[edit]

The Bakweri are not trapped in 1911, inspite of the best efforts of the Germans. Check www.bakweri.com (Bakwerirama) for a more contemporary view of the Bakweri: by themselves mostly, and not just by xenosociologists (aka anthropologists).

Source?[edit]

I cut:

However most traditional practices are matrilinial related. The bakweri children follow their mother for family rituals. Marriage ties are very strict with the matrilineal than Patrilineal. A boy can get married to the fathers cousins daughter but can't do the same with the mother cousin's daughter. They consider that these matrilineal relationships are closer since they share traditional rights together.

It may very well be correct, but the editor who added it needs to cite his or her sources. — Amcaja 22:15, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

New Assessment Criteria for Ethnic Groups articles[edit]

Hello,

WikiProject Ethnic groups has added new assessment criteria for Ethnic Groups articles.

Your article has automatically been given class=stub and reassess=yes ratings. [corrected text: --Ling.Nut 22:59, 16 October 2006 (UTC)] Don't feel slighted if the article is actually far more than a stub -- at least in the beginning, all unassessed articles are being automatically assigned to these values.

-->How to assess articles

Revisions of assessment ratings can be made by assigning an appropriate value via the class parameter in the WikiProject Ethnic groups project banner {{Ethnic groups}} that is currently placed at the top of Ethnic groups articles' talk pages. Quality assessment guidelines are at the Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team's assessment system page.

Please see the Project's article rating and assessment scheme for more information and the details and criteria for each rating value. A brief version can be found at Template talk:Ethnic groups. You can also enquire at the Ethnic groups Project's main discussion board for assistance.

Another way to help out that could be an enjoyable pastime is to visit Category:WikiProject Ethnic groups, find an interesting-looking article to read, and carefully assess it following those guidelines.

Thanks!

According to Bakweri oral traditions, that they originated from Mboko, the area southwest of Mount Cameroon is better than the old version saying "Bakweri oral traditions claim that they originated...." Ephraim Inoni Jr 16:04, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
