      This is a very interesting development, both for its Web implications, and
      for indigenous rights worldwide! Please read on. Contact info is below.

      Root

      You are invited to comment on Position Paper E, which advocates the creation
      of a gTLD in the doman name system, at the level of .COM, .US and .CA to be
      delegated to and operated by the Indigenous Nations and Peoples of North
      America. The comments period opened 17 November, and closes January 10,
      2000.
      In brief, Position Paper E provides ICANN with the mechanism to provide to
      the National Congress of American Indians and the Assembly of First Nations
      as the sponsoring bodies, to in turn provide to the Native DNS operational
      community the opportunity to operate a top-level domain.
      This is a policy goal which has been pursued by the Native DNS community
      since 1992. This will allow improved support for economic, cultural and
      social use of the Internet for rural and urban Indigenous communities.
      To show support simply send email to comments-gtlds@...
      <mailto:comments-gtlds@...> with the subject line "I support Position
      Paper E". In the body of the mail you may add any comment you like-Indians
      have been trying to get a TLD since 1992, now is when we can get one, but a
      lot of support needs to be shown.
      Position Paper E may also be found at the URL below, along with the prior
      (not yet successful) work to expand the protection offered within the UN
      System (International Labor Organization, Convention on Biodiversity,
      Working Group on Indigenous Populations) to the Internet.
