AMERICAN INDIAN LITERATURE DISCUSSION GROUP FOR MLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The new MLA structure provides for many new areas; however, there is no provision for American Indian Lit. We feel that the unique quality of American Indian Lit, as well as its primacy in America, merits a separate area for students, teachers, and scholars in this area.

We would like to present a petition to MLA for an American Indian Literatures Discussion Group. Please sign the petition and get as many signatures as you can from interested people.



MLA PETITIONS FOR SEMINARS FOR '76

We would like to coordinate MLA petitions in the area of American Indian Literature. if you would like to participate in a NYC seminar in '76, please sign the petition & indicate whether you want to serve as seminar leader, co-leader, recorder, or general participant. Also indicate the area and focus of the seminar(s) you wish.



ASAIL NEWSLETTER EDITOR NEEDED

A managing editor and news editor is needed for the newsletter. If you want to volunteer or suggest someone, please do so. We need more help. We did want to do much more, but our group seems to vanish between MIA meetings.
