Dualism and Identity beliefs.
She also objects to the media's
use of the phrase "white
supremacist" in connection
with her husband. Speaking
on the phone from Cohoctah,
where she said her husband
was unavailable for interview,
she emphasized, "We are
separatists. All we want is a
small area of land, which has
already got a 98 percent
white population," a reference
to the Aryan Nationalists'
campaign for the establish-
ment of an "Aryan
Homeland" in the Pacific
Northwest.
Among the recipients of
"From the Mountain" are
some of the 1,800 prisoners in
state and federal institutions
with whom Miles corresponds
as part of his "prison
ministry". Since Miles spent
six years in the federal
penitentiary in Marion, Ill.
for his role in the bombing of
school buses in Pontiac in
1973, he has devoted much at-
tention to making contact
with prisoners and recruiting
them to the movement. He
publishes a special newslet-
ter, sent directly to the
prisoners, entitled "Beyond
the Bars . . . The Stars!" He
also arranges for them to
receive racist literature and
offers to help prisoners with
personal "family problems."
Miles offers prisoners "a
new start" and makes it clear
to them that he regards them
as victims of ZOG — the cor-
rupt and hated federal
government with which the
separatists consider
themselves at war. Prison is
described as "but one hazard
of any war!' He has also writ-
ten that "the Mountain Kirk
will not abandon any who are
fighting for our Race or who,
having strayed, are interested
in fighting for the Race in the
future!'
Other organizations have
also made recruiting efforts
in the prisons, particularly by
supplying prisoners with free
subscriptions to their publica-
tions. The SS Action Group,
for example, said in a 1984
edition of its newsletter, "We
of the SS are 'at war' with the
Jew-controlled system. Our
White brothers and sisters
who are prisoners in this war
and are currently in-
carcerated in our nation's
prisons will receive the
"Michigan Briefing" at no
charge, courtesy of our prison
program. However, all dona-
tions are appreciated as we
are a non-profit organization!'
Miles' "ministry" however,
is regarded as the most active
and the most thorough. Work-
ing from a computerized list,
he has set up a network of
prison "pen-pals" enabling

tracted by the anti-
establishment, confronta-
tional nature of the SS Action
activity, the leader of the
skinhead group admits "We
started doing it just for fun.
But then we got to really
know Ted (a long-term
member of the SS group).
Now we really believe in what
we're doing."
By far the most significant
presence of white power in
the state, according to
monitors of the movement, is
that of Robert Miles and his
organizational headquarters
outside Howell. Reported by
those who have met him to be
more intelligent, charming
and persuasive than other
racist leaders ("I expected to
meet a monster. Instead, he
reminded me of my grand-
father," says Dan Shriner),
Miles has demonstrated an
ability to bring the various
groups together and to forge
effective coalitions from
disputing factions. As
Midwestern head of the
Aryan Nations and pastor of
the Mountain Church of
Jesus Christ the Saviour,
Miles has used his Cohoctah
farm as a gathering point for
activists far beyond the local
area, and has traveled exten-
sively to meet with other
leaders.
Although he has formally
resigned from membership of
the Klan, he has admitted a
continuing affinity with the
organization. As a leader of
the Aryan Nations, he is
closely allied with members
of the Identity Church,
although his own church,
sometimes referred to as the
Mountain Kirk, is not an
Identity church, but follows
what Miles calls "Dualism!'
Its adherents believe that the
two absolute powers of good
and evil are locked in combat
for supremacy. White Aryans
are identified with good and
are therefore engaged in a
mortal struggle with the
Satanic, anti-white forces of
evil.
"Dualism," says Miles' wife
Dorothy, "has existed since
the world began, from time
immemorial!' Certainly its
practice seems to involve a
large element of mysticism
and myth. The cross-burning
gatherings, at which Miles
hosts the nation's leading
white-power advocates, usual-
ly two or three times a year,
are sometimes timed to coin-
cide with ancient, pagan
festivals. Miles' religious
writings, published in his bi-
monthly newsletter "From
the Mountain," are written in
a vein reminiscent of fantasy
science fiction.
Dorothy Miles insists on the
differentiation between
