Levine disagreed with Hollerbach's accusation that execu-
tive members had a heavy influence on the vote.
"Speakers on all sides of the issue had a fair opportunity to
express their opinions," Levine said.
Al-Dabagh added that the success of the Flint resolution
could be attributed to the fact that it asks the University to
look at a set of five or six ethical questions pertaining to
arms and human rights violations. Unlike the resolution
that was voted down in Ann Arbor, the Flint resolution
did not propose that the University create a committee to
look at investments - another factor that AI-Dabagh said
contributed to the resolution's success.
"All it does is ask the Board of Regents to look at their
investments," he said.
Al-Dabagh said he will send a copy of the resolution that
passed in the Flint Student Government to the University's
Dearborn and Ann Arbor campuses in order to rally support
from students and student governments.
"I hope that this will be successful," A1-Dabagh said, add-
ing that "you shouldn't expect change overnight."
Despite the failed efforts to pass a divestment resolution in
Ann Arbor, Salhi said he has not given up.
"I'm not discouraged - when you consider the fact that
MSA was just one of the options to go through," Salhi said.
Salhi said that according to the official University
purchasing policy, a significant portion of the student
body must find the investments morally or ethically
"We have that ... Now it is up to the regents" Salhi said.

group whose name in itself is a play on a Native
American name - dressed up as Native Amer-
icans in red brick paint. The movies were taken
presumably from the 1950s and showed, among
other things, members of Michigamua tearing
each other's clothes off and covering each other
in red paint.
Three speakers, Mellissa Pope, Jujan Buford
and Stehney, talked after the movie screen-
ing. Pope and Buford were both involved in
the 2000 Tower takeover, when members of
the Student of Color Coalition - an organiza-
tion that aimed to remedy problems facing the
minority community - occupied the tower in
the Michigan Union where Michigamua had
In the process, they claimed they found
Native American artifacts that they said Mich-
igamua used in mock ritual practices.
The consensus among the speakers was that
they had already tried to deal unsuccessfully
with Michigamua through dialogue starting in
1972, and they were now pursuing means of
"(Dialogue) only benefits them.... We heard
about Vicky Barner (the first person to file a
lawsuit against Michigamua) who tried to
change them and it didn't work. At this point
we're not trying to change them - we're trying
to crush them," Stehney said.
A spokesman for the secret society who goes
by the name Nick said that Michigamua would
be willing to pursue an open dialogue with the
Native American Student Association.
"Michigamua is open to dialogue. There are
misconceptions about the group and we'd be
open to neutral representation so folks from
both sides (can) discuss the issue," Nick said.
He added that the group does not want to
perpetuate pain in any community. Nick said
that the name issue is something that they are
willing to discuss through dialogue.
Historically, Michigamua has tried to pursue
dialogue with the Students of Color Coalition,
dating back to the publicized tower occupation
in 2000, Nick said.
"Prior to the occupation, Michigamua
attempted to dialogue with the leader of the
SCC, but he or she refused," he said.
Nick added that both sides were at the table when
they were in negotiations after the Tower occupation,
but the isolated event was all that was discussed, and
the greater issues were not touched on.
Michigamua also claimed to know nothing
about the posters that were hung outside of the
chemistry building attacking Lambda Theta
Phi, an adamant supporter of NASA and co-
sponsor of the "Expose Michigamua event'. "
The posters criticized the Lambda Theta Phi
mascot the conquistador, because of its association
with massacring indigenous people.
