MICHIGAMUA
Continued from page 1A
University in 2000, is also examining the pos-
sibility of becoming a University-sanctioned
group again by going through the Student Orga-
nization And Recognition process.
"Among the many options that our group is
considering is if, how, and when we will once
again officially register as a student organiza-
tion," the group said in a written statement.
Dean of Students Susan Eklund and Susan
Wilson, director of the Office of Student Activi-
ties and Leadership, which is responsible for the
recognition of student groups, recently met with
group members to discuss the path to official
recognition by the University.
Any group that wishes to be recognized must
submit a constitution to Wilson's office, register
with MSA and agree to follow the University's
nondiscrimination policies.
"Anything that smacked of racism or exclu-
sion would be a problem," Wilson said.

While the Office of Student Activities and
Leadership has not refused recognition to any
student group since the SOAR process began
at the beginning of this semester, some groups
have chosen not to seek recognition after learn-
ing of the requirements, Wilson said.
"It was my impression during that conversa-
tion that while they may have thought that recog-
nition was in the future, I always thought it was
in the distant future," Eklund said.
Wilson and Eklund also advised group mem-
bers on the way administrators and students per-
ceive the group.
Wilson said the group could use the recogni-
tion process to allay the concerns of some mem-
bers of the University community.
"If there's a group that has to be accountable
in its practices and its membership in order to
be recognized, that would enhance its credibility
with some people," she said.
Marino was unsure about whether the Universi-
ty should recognize the group if it seeks approval.
"I think that we need to carefully consider
their history and recognize that just because

they've changed their name doesn't mean they
are an average student organization, doesn't wipe
away the (104) years of racism," she said.
Law Prof. Gavin Clarkson, a member of the
Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, said he is glad
the group has stopped using Native American
imagery, but remained skeptical of its ability to
reform itself.
"If they eliminate their use of Native imagery,
misuse of artifacts - pretty much stop play-
ing Indian - that will be a welcome change,"
he said. "The proof will be in how they conduct
themselves and what their organization actually
stands for and does going forward."
Attorney Christopher Bell, who has filed
a lawsuit alleging that the University did not
enforce a 1989 agreement between the group
and the University mandating that the group
not use Native American imagery, welcomed
the changes.
"I believe that (the name) would be one of the
major stumbling blocks people have with the
group,' he said. "For many Native people, the
biggest problem was the name."

Bell said he will press forward with the law-
suit. He said the University is likely to be served
with it next week.
The group says its mission is to serve the Uni-
versity "above all else."
"This single goal, to better Michigan, is the
basis for all our actions," the group said in a
written statement. "By bringing together diverse
student leaders from distant corners of campus,
our organization continues to pursue goals that
enhance Michigan without the need for public
recognition."
The society has a past rife with controversy.
On campus, the name Michigamua is synony-
mous with racism to many. For years, it appro-
priated Native American artifacts, names and
rituals.
Its list of members reads like a who's
who of the University's past. Playwright
Arthur Miller, President Gerald Ford and
Michigan football coach Bo Schembechler
are among its many influential members.
Five University presidents - James Angell,
Henry Hutchins, Alexander Ruthven, Harlan

Hatcher, Robben Fleming - have been in
the group.
The saga climaxed in 2000 when the Stu-
dent of Color Coalition occupied the society's
meeting space in the tower of the Michigan
Union for 37 days. The group put on display
Native American artifacts they'd found in the
tower and took students on tours. Members of
Michigamua at the time said the artifacts were
stored in an attic and did not violate the 1989
agreement.
The society, which only began admitting
women to the class of 2000, has recently begun
tapping a more diverse membership, evident in
its members' genders, sexual orientations, politi-
cal viewpoints and races.
Three members of this year's class were
ousted from progressive campus groups ear-
lier this school year after their membership
in Michigamua was exposed.
A short documentary about the controver-
sy surrounding the society premieres tomor-
row as part of the M-agination Films annual
festival at 7 p.m. at the Michigan Theater.

For Wednesday, April 12, 2006
ARIES
(March 21 to April 19)
Because tomorrow is the Full Moon,
you might experience increased tension
when dealing with partners and close
friends. Don't worry about this. It will be
gone by tomorrow.
TAURUS
(April 20 to May 20)
You'll need extra patience to deal with
co-workers today (and perhaps events
related to your job). This is just Full
Moon tension. It's gone in 36 hours.
GEMINI
(May 21 to June 20)
Children, romance, creative projects
and show business are sources of stress
right now. Do as little as possible. This
tension passes in a day or two.
CANCER
(June 21 to July 22)
Tomorrow's Full Moon is at odds with
your sign. This could create tension
between you and authority figures, like
parents, bosses and VIPs. Be polite.
Watch which way the wind blows.
LEO
(July 23 to Aug. 22)
Avoid arguments about political and
religious subjects. Let others believe
what they want to believe - just take
care of your own beliefs. (That's really
all you can ever do, anyway.)
VIRGO
(Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)

SCORPIO
(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
Do not try to please everyone at work
now. Just please yourself. Unspoken
doubts could make you second-guess
yourself today. Don't do this.
SAGITTARIUS
(Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
You may find yourself at odds with
friends and groups today. Don't pushi
things! Opposition arises easily in a Full!
Moon period, which lasts at least 24
hours. (Wait a few days.)
CAPRICORN
(Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
Parents, bosses and authority figures
are dicey and difficult today. (Or so it)
seems.) Tomorrow's Full Moon exagger-
ates this. Don't be pushy. Wait until
Friday to make your move.
AQUARIUS
(Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
Travel plans could meet with opposi-
tion today; ditto for work related to pub-1
lishing and the media. Don't throw in the
towel. Wait a day to see what develops.
PISCES
(Feb. 19 to March 20)
Today and tomorrow are not good;
days to divide something or decide how
to spend an allotted amount of money.
People are at odds with each other. Andy
tempers easily flare! Wait till Friday.
YOU BORN TODAY You have a
charming way with words. You can be
powerfully persuasive. You keep abreast
