Native American News Outlets

A sampling of websites that offer news and commentary on Native American issues

Indian Country Today Media Network
A national platform for Native voices and issues, Indian Country Today is a news service owned by the Oneida Nation of New York, with coverage of breaking news, politics, arts and entertainment, business, education, and health.
A product of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska and Noble Savage Media, a Native American-owned media firm, this website posts a mix of original news reporting and aggregated reports about subjects relevant throughout Indian Country.
National Native News
Funded in part by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, National Native News is a headline news radio program, providing listeners with timely coverage on local and international current events relevant to Native American and indigenous communities. Distributed by Native Voice One, the distribution division of Alaska-based Koahnic Broadcast Corportation, the radio show can be heard online and on radio stations across the U.S. and Canada.
Native America Calling
A production of Koahnic Broadcast Corporation, a Native-operated media center, this live call-in program is streamed online and broadcast on nearly 70 public, community, and tribal radio stations in North America, bringing callers in conversation with experts and guests about a wide range of issues of interest to Native communities.
Native Appropriations
Founded by Adrienne Keene, a member of the Cherokee tribe and an assistant professor of American Studies at Brown University, Native Appropriations is a blog highlighting the misrepresentations of, and racial insensitivities toward, Native peoples in mainstream culture.
Native Health News Alliance
An independent nonprofit news organization launched in partnership with the Native American Journalists Association, Native Health News Alliance produces multimedia news and feature stories focused on the health and wellness needs, issues, and concerns of Native communities and their governments. Media outlets that register with NHNA can republish the organization’s articles for free.
Native News Project
Reported, written, photographed, and edited by journalism students at the University of Montana, the Native News Project features long-form stories from Montana’s seven reservations, each intertwined by a single topic of importance to the state’s Native population. In 2015, the theme was “Intertwined: Stories of Detachment and Connection from Montana’s Reservations,” which explores relationships binding people to each other and to their tribes.
Native Sun News
A weekly newspaper based in Rapid City, South Dakota, the Native Sun News covers local news and events around the Northern Plains region, which includes the Pine Ridge Reservation. Its “Voices of the People” section also features editorials and opinion pieces on national issues that affect Indian Country.
Trahant Reports
Mark Trahant, University of North Dakota journalism professor and former editorial page editor for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, posts news about Federal Indian policy, health care reform, and elections. He also writes a number of opinion columns reprinted by outlets such as the Indian Country Today Media Network and High Country News.

As the single largest unregulated industry in the United States, adoption is viewed as a benevolent action that results in the formation of “forever families.”
The truth is that it is a very lucrative business with a known sales pitch. With profits last estimated at over $1.44 billion dollars a year, mothers who consider adoption for their babies need to be very aware that all of this promotion clouds the facts and only though independent research can they get an accurate account of what life might be like for both them and their child after signing the adoption paperwork.

Why tribes do not recommend the DNA swab

Rebecca Tallbear entitled: “DNA, Blood, and Racializing the Tribe”, bearing out what I only inferred:

Detailed discussion of the Bering Strait theory and other scientific theories about the population of the modern-day Americas is beyond the scope of this essay. However, it should be noted that Indian people have expressed suspicion that DNA analysis is a tool that scientists will use to support theories about the origins of tribal people that contradict tribal oral histories and origin stories. Perhaps more important,the alternative origin stories of scientists are seen as intending to weaken tribal land and other legal claims (and even diminish a history of colonialism?) that are supported in U.S. federal and tribal law. As genetic evidence has already been used to resolve land conflicts in Asian and Eastern European countries, this is not an unfounded fear.
