    Artists' Views of Native Americans
    The Indian was a favorite subject of many European and American born artists during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. There was a wide range of viewpoints ex- pressed in this art, with an idealized image of the Indian as a "noble savage" being a frequent choice. Other artists saw their role as one of documenting an accurate picture of Indians and their society in a time when it was already disappearing.

    Native American Art
    Native American art is the oldest form of art in this country -- covering some 25,000 years. Yet it has been the last to be recognized as more than historical artifact. Now, thanks to the work of art historians, archeologists, and ethnohistorians, there is a greater recognition of the continuity of Native North American art.

    Tribal Law Intellectual Property Home Page
    ICANN VI-B(3)(b)(7) Constituency Application -- The question of indigenous rights and the use of cultural heritage on the Internet is long overdue for consideration. The formation and implementation of the ICANN and its supporting organizations and advisory groups represents an excellent opportunity for bringing the concerns of indigenous peoples to light and for ensuring that policy and implementation efforts adequately address indigenous rights. This proposal for the Indigenous Intellectual Property Constituency (IIPC) will provide a vehicle for this goal, consistent with the fundamental goal of providing a constituency vehicle for all trademark, intellectual property and anti-counterfeiting interests in the Internet Communities.
