      INDIAN TRIBES GAIN SPECIAL DOMAIN NAME SUFFIX
      An agreement announced by the Interior Department and the General Services
      Administration (GSA) provides federally recognized American Indian tribes
      with a special domain name suffix identifying them as government entities.
      A tribe's domain name will include a hyphen, the letters "nsn" (for native
      sovereign nation) and the .gov designation. For example, the Hopi tribes'
      domain name is currently 'www.hopi.nsn.us.' Their new domain name will be
      'www.hopi-nsn.gov.' The Interior Department said the special tribal
      designation is a step toward providing information about American Indian
      programs and agencies over the Internet. [SOURCE: Governmenet Computer
