Start of the Update

I thought I would post a few things, and ask you for your input on 
something else.

Also, a reminder: I average over 1,000 spam e-mails each day at the 
americanindian.net addresses. Because of this, I have added an e-mail 
filter. Occasionally, if your include a certain word in the subject 
line, or if your e-mail comes from a source which has sent me lots of 
spam, I may not get your e-mail. While it might take me a day or two, I 
always answer the real e-mail I get. If your mail comes back as 
"undeliverable," or if I do not respond, it is because of this. This is 
seldom a problem at the rocketmail address. So, if I do not respond to 
your e-mail, try the rocketmail address below.

Again, if you would like to get a copy of my book, it is available in 
many bookstores in the US. You can order a copy through my website for 
less than bookstores at:


I have planned on discussing movies about American Indians in an 
upcoming newsletter. If you have a favorite movie, let me know. Tell me 
why do you like it. The opposite also applies, tell me if you have a 
movie which you really dislike, and why.


Here are the postings:

training, but attendance is not limited to the federal sector. Anyone 
with an interest is welcome to register. The registration deadline is

Application Deadline: February 3, 2003

The Foundation sponsored and implemented its first Native American 
Congressional Summer Internship program in June 1996. For ten weeks, 
Native American college students work in congressional offices and the 
White House to gain a firsthand understanding of the federal government. 
They also take field trips and meet with congressional members, agency 
heads, and cabinet secretaries.

For application guidelines and form: 


Scholarship support for preservice American Indian teachers

The University of Oregon has recently received a Federal grant that will 
provide scholarship support for a number of American Indians who want to 
enroll in one of the following teacher education programs at the 
University of Oregon (each is a "fifth year" program that assumes a 
bachelor's degree):

1. Elementary Education
2. Middle School/Secondary School Education
3. Elementary School Special Education
4. Middle School/Secondary School Special Education

I have added an American Indian page to the OTEC Website. It is at:

If you know of students who might be interested in these 
scholarships(they pay tuition, fees, a stipend, and so on), have then 
contact Pat Rounds.
