-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*- >>>>>------> /^\ <------<<<<< -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*- I would like to take this opportunity to introduce NATIVE_NETWORK, the Native American news and information network. NATIVE_NETWORK is a computer network dedicated to news, issues, and cultural information regarding North America's Indigenous populations. This network is geared toward any Native American with access to a modem. Although NATIVE_NETWORK was designed for and by Native Americans, non-natives with genuine concern and interest in Native affairs are welcomed to join in numerous areas. NATIVE_NETWORK provides a wide range of topics and areas of interest. For the serious minded you can find out the latest in Native legal affairs on Nations battling the dominant society over concerns such as treaty rights, land rights and international law, or find out about current conditions on reservations and historical perspectives. If you find the Net lacks something please inform the Local Sysop of the BBS, your calling. Also call back from time to time, as new things are added quite offen. For those looking for cultural material, NATIVE_NETWORK offers discussions and information sharing relating to tribal language, native stories, poetry and legends. You can also hookup and find out about upcoming pow wows, celebrations and gatherings and conferences. Looking for resources? NATIVE_NETWORK can help! From education and grant opportunities to job listing and business development, NATIVE_NETWORK provides direct links to trading, bartering and programs being developed to help tribes help each other while becoming self-sufficient and increasing self-pride. Naturally, there are Conferences covering everything from arts and crafts to political exchanges and cultural beliefs. Information is available on issues from the U.S., Canada, South America, Australia, Africa and Europe. Engage in intelligent and educational conversations with knowledgeable people who not only know Native affairs but live them every day. NATIVE_NETWORK is also a wonderful choice for schools, universities and the media. The current news and information is a welcomed addition to Native studies because it provides an up-to-date of current affairs and what is happening in Indian Country. Outdated school books and primers can't compare to today's news . . . today. NATIVE_NETWORK DEPENDS ON YOU! NATIVE_NETWORK is also looking for new information from Indian Nations not currently using our network. The more information and nations that utilize this network, the more productive and informed our Native people can be. Sharing information, relating to cultural, legal matters, education, etc., will help to unite Native people and provide a wider base of information to draw from. Any ideas or suggestions on this matter are greatly appreciated. NATIVE_NETWORK is growing all the time and more and more information is coming over the echos. From Alaska to Florida, California to New Jersey, Native news is happening all the time. And as of this Month we are now going in to Sweden and Germany. For other BBS around the country see our Native BBS Phone Listing. We have hopes of it to double in the next six months with the help of the users. One note, Native_Net has no intentions of joining InterNet or any other Networks. The goal is to connect Native People together via this Network. It might cost more but this way it is semi-private and we can reach those that have deep interest in Native Affair's. Hope this finds you in good health. This is coming to from Kahnawake Native_Network Computer Systems located in Kahnawake Mohawk Territory.
