these are links I collected from 1994 to about 1995 or 1996. So if they actually work, well, woah!
Native American Resource Center
Since I put this page up, Native American net resources have improved vastly.
- Howard Rheingold has written about Buffy Sainte Marie, a pioneer of Native American net presence. He does use the non-PC term though...
- Check out NativeNet, a no-longer fledging webserver attempting to coordinate Native related net resources. They've got a pretty good collection going - a lot of good texts online here.
- Titled politically incorrect, the National Museum of the American Indian from the Smithsonian.
- The National Clearinghouse for Alcohol and Drug Information has a page about native american drug and alcohol abuse in their "prevention primer."
- Tribal Telecom Applications are available from the self-titled American Indian Nations page. Definitely quite the gussied up web site - clickable imagemaps, nice graphics, a pretty seamless interface. Some art up here, nothing earth shattering, links to other Native American info sites. A broad overview of various aspects and issues of Native American life today - a nice setup to cover it all, but it looks like they have a ways to go in fleshing it out.
- The Fourth World Center for World Indigenous Studies has a web server coordinating related resources. They have some good stuff, including a list of documents pertaining to and published by peoples indigenous to North, South and Central America dating back as far as 1836. They also provide other sources of indigenous information, a helpful list of other net-based native resources.
- The Oneida Indian Nation of NY has a nice web site, with a picture and interpretation of the tribe's seal, a recording of someone welcoming you to the page in their native tounge, information about their nation, and nation building activities (with links to a gift shop page). A strange blend of commercialism and nationalism.
- A sordid tale of cocaine sherrifs, crooked judges, and your tax dollars spent to hound and persecute semi-innocent civilians awaits if you read the story of Eddie Hatcher Native American Political Prisoner in North Carolina. Shit like this turns my stomach, and makes me doubt this democracy.
- Our government has put up the Bureau of Indian Affairs web page providing nothing of substance save a mission statement and a link to another dead end page about Native American Mineral Management.
- There is a posting that has a good list of Native FTP sites.
