  1. I don't think it's less relevant than say, Lionfish, which has its own article separate from Lionfish spine. I think it's kind of interesting that there's a possibility, however vague, that Dumbledore could be part Native American. EmmyG 15:51, October 9, 2010 (UTC)

Comments

There are many things on this wiki that are here for the mere sake of them being mentioned. There are many people mentioned on JKR's sight that have their own arrticles.--L.V.K.T.V.J.Hogwarts(Send an owl!) 15:58, October 9, 2010 (UTC) Harry said he thought kendra looked like a native American, a very very small mention, we don't even know if any native Americans were shown in the series.--Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure.

In Harry Potter and Me is mentioned a Ravenclaw student with the name Stephen Cornfoot. Cornfoot seems to be a native American name. So I think - when he is british, what is very likely - he must have native American roots. Harry granger 19:37, October 9, 2010 (UTC)

That is speculation--Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure. (talk) 19:44, October 9, 2010 (UTC)

It is also speculation that Harry Potter thinks Kendra Dumbledore could be a native American because of her looks but that does not make it more improbable. Do you know a "not Red Indian" with the surname Cornfoot?


Regardless of all of this, the term "Native American" is used, in the book, in the context of describing Kendra Dumbledore's looks; since Kendra Dumbledore's article here reflects that fact, it makes sense to have another one explaining what a Native American is. If we have articles explaining what a Budgerigar and Neptune are because they were mentioned, or what a tomato is because Bertie Bott has a tomato flavored bean, I don't really get why this article is a problem. --EmmyG 20:21, October 9, 2010 (UTC)


J.K. Rowling doesn't mention Native Amercans, but she shows them in the Goblit of Fire. In the discription of the black hair American witches who were sitting under the sign 'Salem Insitute' he discribes them as wearing strange clothes, and speaking in unfamiler toungs. Prehapes she was trying to say in the magical world the Americas have kept the customs of their native people, who also have very powerful folklore and belifs in magic.-Leah Walentosky
