History of Indigenous Peoples

NativeNet is no longer associated with AISESnet

History:

AISESnet was created in 1989 by a former student at Brown University, Dana Numkena. Dana collected about 70 e-mail addresses from AISES members at the 1989 National AISES Conference, and started a distributed mailing list. In 1991, Dana graduated from Brown, and AISESnet was continued and enhanced by myself, Borries Demeler, back then a graduate student at Oregon State University. I transferred the lists to the University of Montana, where they found a home until the fall of 1998.

During this time, AISESnet grew and was split into several mailing lists, each of which had a different focus. In 1993 I took a position at the University of Texas Health Science Center, Department of Biochemistry in San Antonio, Texas. There, I developed a full server system for AISES based on the Linux operating system. Soon after, a gopher server was added to AISESnet to adequately serve the increasing number of messages, and later a web server. To the best of my knowledge, AISES was the first professional organization (aside of physics departments) to claim a home page on the WWW at the time. Also added to the list of AISESnet services was a career center, which included an on-line résumé and job database. Winds of Change, the premier magazine of AISES also found a home on the AISESnet web server. In the fall of 1998, the listservers at the University of Montana lost their maintainer and AISES national headquarters requested to take control of the AISESnet name. Therefore, the AISESnet name was discontinued and the mailing lists and database were added to the mailing lists and services operated by NativeNet.

Contributors:

During the life of AISESnet, many people helped to make this system a success. Most notable among them is Gary Trujillo, who developed the AISESnet Résumé Database System, software implemented using the Perl language that works in conjunction with the Linux-based Apache Webserver and the industrial strength MySQL database engine. Other people who contributed a lot of time and effort include Alan Mandell and Delbert Willie, who diligantly helped moderate the AISESnet mailing lists, and Virginia Reid who single-handedly ran the AISESnet Professional Mailing list for most of its life. A heartfelt THANK YOU goes out to those individuals for volunteering their effort and time to AISESnet.

Current Status:

To make sure that information formerly distributed by AISESnet stays available on the network for you to browse and search, all articles ever submitted to AISESnet will stay on-line in these keyword-searchable archives, that span all mailing lists from 1992-1998. I hope you find what you are looking for.

Today's System:

AISESnet has now been replaced and superceded by NativeNet. All mailing lists and database functions formerly associated with AISESnet are now operated under the auspices of Nativenet, which is now jointly administered by myself and its developer, Gary Trujillo. The former AISESnet mailing lists are now replaced by new NativeNet lists, moderated by Delbert Willie with support from Mel Yawakie.

This archive is sponsored by myself and the Dept. of Biochemistry at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Texas, which provides the hardware, software and network connectivity for the server system now in operation. The archive is housed in my office, powered by a dual Pentium Pro computer running Linux.

Thank you all for your past patronage of AISESnet!!

I hope to meet you again in the new NativeNet mailing lists.

Best Regards,

Dr. Borries Demeler
