AIM TRADEMARKS

SPECIAL NOTICE

The names and graphics displayed on our Website, AIMOVEMENT.ORG, our letterhead, publications and merchandise are the exclusive U.S. Patent & Trademark protected, spiritual, cultural, and intellectual property rights of the American Indian Movement. The American Indian Movement Grand Governing Council National Board of Directors are the registered owners and safe-keepers of said Marks.

These Marks as well others displayed on our Website are intended to be utilized only by American Indian Movement affiliated Chapters, AIM members, and AIM support groups and related organizations found to be in good standing with the American Indian Movement Grand Governing Council, AIMGGC.

The continued use of our Trademarked protected names and graphics by unscrupulous individuals and groups without the expressed consent of the American Indian Movement Grand Governing Council is strictly prohibited by law, and they will be the subjects of legal action under U.S. Patent and Trademark Laws and Statutes.

We are forced to take this action due to the fact that several individuals and groups, wannabes, frauds, phonies, rip-off artists, etc. for some time have expropriated and are utilizing our Trademarked protected intellectual and cultural property rights. With deceit and treachery, they have attacked the leadership of the American Indian Movement. Additionally, they have carried on a campaign to ferment disruption and confusion among our friends and supporters nationally and worldwide. Moreover, some are soliciting financial support by using the American Indian Movement and/or the Leonard Peltier Defense Committee to line their own pockets. Monies solicited in the name of Leonard Peltier should be sent directly to the Peltier Defense Committee.

These individuals and groups are at this time being served with legal notice to cease and desist this activity, and their names and groups will be exposed, and published on our Website.

We are requesting that all AIM chapters, AIM support groups, related organizations currently, or those who will be utilizing our trademarked protected names and graphics in the future to write or email us letting us know who you are, your leadership structure, spokespersons, tribal enrollment, or show proof of lineal descent from an Indian nation (tribe), and other pertinent information. Those found to be sincere, honest and in good standing with the American Indian Movement Grand Governing Council, AIMGGC will have your affiliated AIM chapters, AIM support groups, and related organizations and/or your Websites published and linked to our website, aimovement.org.

Membership in the American Indian Movement is open to all people of goodwill nationally and internationally upon request.
