     Small militias have formed in Alaska. Despite their
modest  size, the groups have caused concern among
observers. An Anchorage attorney and board member of the
National Rifle Association has called some of the militias
"extremely dangerous."

     Alaskan militias are connected to the national militia
movement via computers. The electronic bulletin board
services "AmeriKa" and "Back Woods," based in Anchorage.
provide users with conspiracy literature -- including
articles by Linda Thompson (see Indiana) and on topics
ranging from "NATO and U.S. Join Together For Total Civilian 
Disarmament" to "Why the British Had To Kill Abraham Lincoln." 
The bulletin board services also act as forums for users to 
lambast the purportedly encroaching powers of the federal government.
