Mailing lists provide a very valuable means of keeping up with current events and in touch with people with similar interests. After you subscribe to a list you will receive email on relevant issues from other subscribers and can circulate your own thoughts, comments, and responses to all of the other members with a single post.
There are several very useful mailing lists dealing with indigenous issues. In order to keep discussion relevant to the group some lists impose constraints on membership. Others are open to all. Some also "moderate" discussion, to ensure that all posts are relevant to the interests of the group. Some lists generate a very high volume of mail. Others are only intermittently active.
I have found the following lists very useful:
Lists originally run by Bruce Reyburn of Songlines Services
Bruce's lists have invariably been lively and informative and sometimes controversial.
