Call for editors to assist increase awareness about Native Americans

Of all the pages that give information online, Wikipedia ranks among the top reliable and trusted sources. The fact that more than 30 million people use this information bank, and that there are more than 5 million articles on the site goes to show that it cannot be ignored by anyone that is looking for online visibility. The best thing about Wikipedia, which might as well be the challenge, is the fact that anyone can register as an editor and help improve or update a Wikipedia page with inaccurate or out of date information. With these rules being in place, it is hard to believe the reality that there are still topics that you will find little to no coverage about when you check the site.
In case you are wondering what these missing information links could be, think about a character such as Ether Belin. If you know who she is or what she does, you most likely did not learn about her from Wikipedia. Esther is an artiste of native American origin who has gained prominence because of her art, she has even won a pushcart award for the same.Despite the accomplishment, you will not find any information about her on Wikipedia; her and many other Native Americans.
After realizing that this gap was present, Wikipedia has been trying to bridge the information gap by creating events that have been dubbed edit-a-thons and encouraging people to participate in them. The next of these events is scheduled to be held on the indigenous people’s day. The first of these events was created when the site discovered that less than 8 percent of the contributors to the site are women. Encouraging women to participate in editing the site was therefore the first goal.
Another research that was carried out about the patterns that people follow when using Wikipedia found that very few people consider editing content about their culture or environs. Huge disparities were also discovered in the rates that content is edited in the first and third world countries, something that could be blamed on broad band connectivity or lack of the same.
