Communities[edit]

None of the listed communities appear to be official names locations in Louisiana. Can someone please explain? -- Jmabel | Talk 20:03, September 6, 2005 (UTC)

They are real places, listed on many maps for hundreds of years (look in any good atlas at the section of St. Bernard Parish beween the Mississippi River and Lake Borgne and you should see at least several of them). What do you mean as "official" names? Possibly the US census lumps them in with other larger St. Bernard cities or towns for census purposes? We could use articles on several of them at least. -- Infrogmation 13:29, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

Title[edit]

The article is at IsleñosIsleños, but now says Islenos throughout. Which is correct? - Jmabel | Talk 04:49, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

Language[edit]

Also, the statement that some speak an archaic Spanish dialect was replaced by "Spanish (with a Canary Islander accent)". I have no idea which is correct; no citation was provided for the change. - Jmabel | Talk 04:51, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

Gallego[edit]

Why is "gallego" (pejorative) used instead of peninsular spaniard, or a similar term in this article? Is there a "gallego" people (outside of galicians) I am not aware of? --Bistor92 05:37, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Bad Map[edit]

This map is awful. The state of Michigan is completely formless. It is not encyclopedia-quality. 206.135.142.245 21:33, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

That is kind of ugly. I think what they've done is to go up to the lines down the middle of the Great Lakes legally separating the U.S. from Canada, ignoring what is land and water. - Jmabel | Talk 19:23, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
I created a better map, showing the Louisiana settlements and removed the "bad" map link. Also, I fixed some sections related in the Louisiana section. Falkonry 23:01, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

History of the isleños[edit]

I would have introduced a history section where I spoke briefly of the Canarian emigration to the Americas from the Canarian who settled first in this continent after getting off the ships of Christopher Columbus to the late fifteenth century until migrants who settled in the early eighties of the twentieth century, and then I had already spoken of the Canary current descendant communities and immigrant communities canaries are still current in the Americas and who have not mixed much with population. It would also be interesting to talk a section of the canarian's influence in the Americas such as Canary contributions to Puerto Rican accent (book "La herencia linguistica de Canarias en Puerto Rico" by Manuel Alvaerz Nazario, 1972) or the liberators of Hispanoamerica , many of whom were from the Canarian ancestries.

Isleños from United States[edit]

I think that the Isleños from United States would should have his own Wikipedia´s article, because them (the Isleños from Texas and Louisiana) have the culture of his ancestries and it is differents to the mayority culture from United States, while that the most of the Spanish American are more assimilated to the culture from this country. In fact, we can compare to the Isleños with groups as the Cajuns, the Gullah or the Pennsylvania Dutch that also are groups culturally isolated. Even, with Californios or Nuevomexicanos groups, that also descended of Spanish settlers. I already wrote many editions in this article, mostly in the Isleños from United States seccion, but I think that them would should have his own article. We know what the term means "Isleños" in the Americas and the Isleños from United States seccion is already very big and I would like include this information in a article separated, leaving in the Isleños article only a general introduction to the subject, speaking Isleñas communities in the United States generally, but not into historical events or other details.. I want ask permission before doing so (because the various subsections of that section began to be written by others) and know the opinion of you.--Isinbill (talk) 00:55, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

If you think there is enough material for a second article, no objection. (Just note in edit summary that material was spun off from this article; a note on the talk page might be a good idea as well.) -- Infrogmation (talk) 20:40, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
Ok, already published the article. --Isinbill (talk) 23:28, 25 January 2012 (UTC)


Isleños from Canary Islands[edit]

I have changed the entry of the article because it can lead to some confusion. Isleño is first and foremost one of the two terms to name inhabitants of Canary Islands. In this article only their descendants in the New World are included, I dind't write that in the article. I think it is correct to have two articles, Canarian people subject has its own article and should be split apart from this, because of the different evolution of these communities. --Bentaguayre (talk) 22:32, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

General History[edit]

In the course of editing some idiomatic problems (stemming from translation) I have removed the following run-on and parenthetical text until it can be determined exactly what is meant to be said and how it might better fit into the narrative:

(leaving behind the Canarian emigration to Latin America, which in the twentieth century (from the 1900s until 1970) became to the archipelago in the second most important Autonomous Community of Spain in the number of immigrants in that place after Galicia, being reduced from the 70 to the third Spanish region in number of immigrant in Latin America after Madrid and Galicia, with the combination of Canarian emigration to Europe and Latin America and from the 80's, with the reduction of Canarian emigration)

As it is, such a long, nested parenthetical construct pretty much renders the rest of the text unreadable.

Isinbill, I have a somewhat personal interest in this subject and if you are still working on it, I'd be delighted to work with you. Tejanoviejo (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 06:24, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
