The AIM-Support Mail List


This is an email based discussion group. (not recomended for those under 13)

The list is owned by AIM members. It is intended for AIM supporters to discuss issues concerning the American Indian Movement and American Indians. It is primarily a list for activists, and not a list for learning about Native Americans. If we speak at all of spiritual things it will probably be in connection with some exploiter and thief that we would like to educate. It is restricted only to the point that we ask you to respond with your name and where you live (city state). There will be a very low tolerence for trouble makers however, and they will be ejected without warning. We have also found that it is best for everyone concerned that we restrict our membership to people who reside within the U.S. borders. It is not a moderated list, so any messages posted, go to every other person on the list.

There are a few rules.

1. Personal attacks on another list member will not be tolerated, and offenders will either be placed in a read-only status, or removed from the list. Discussions may become heated, but should not become personal. It is possible to disagree on an issue without attacking the other on a personal level.

2. It is meant to be a friendly forum allowing for discussion of issues that involve and affect Native Americans, and AIM, and what we might be able to do to assist. Discussions, ideas, and questions are encouraged, however, those that stray too far afield from these guidelines will be strongly discouraged. Inappropriate postings will result in the member being unsubscribed without notice.

3. While you are encouraged to post a URL for a web page, either your own or one where you have found useful or noteworthy information, DO NOT forward an entire web page to the list. Pictures are also discouraged, many email programs cannot handle pictures or web pages, and can in fact cause these people a great deal of inconvience. Sometimes an article of interest might be found posted on a web page - use your own judgement here, but due to copyright laws, you should post the URL for the site, and a small extract from the article. Sometimes, you may want to post the entire article, but be aware you may violate copyright laws in doing so. You are responsible for what you post. Forwarding posts that others make should be restricted to news items only, and please give credit to the original poster. Do NOT forward personal posts from the list that are not of a news category.
