                       RESOLUTION #84-F-04

    WHEREAS, the American Indian Tribes have been continuously 
attacked with adverse publicity and political action movements as 
a new kind of approach towards the acts of genocide reflected in 
the nineteenth century; and 

    WHEREAS, these movements, to totally discredit Indian 
Treaties, laws, and policies of such adverse groups have tended 
to degrade the integrity of the American Indian Tribes and the 
legal status guaranteed to the Tribes under solemn Treaties made 
with the United States government; and 

    WHEREAS, there is a strong need to effectively counteract the 
bad, derogatory publicity being imposed against the American 
Indian Tribes and their Treaties: and 

    THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Affiliated Tribes of 
Northwest Indians expresses its concern for the need to organize 
a political-action movement group, consisting of a committee or 
commission of Indians journalist, newspaper editors, publishers, 
or media experts, in general, to make national or regional 
response to such public aggression of anti-Indian/anti-Treaty 
media exposure to the American public; and 

    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Affiliated Tribes of 
Northwest Indians urges the 41st Annual Convention of the 
National Congress of American Indians to support this resolution 
and give serious consideration to organize such a group of 
experts, as a political action group, responding to adverse 
publicity movements. 


The foregoing resolution was duly endorsed at the Annual 
Conference of the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians, at 
Spokane, Washington, on September 8, 1984, with a quorum present 
and voting.
