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.

Please support NARF

Indian Country is under attack. Native tribes and people are fighting hard for justice. There is need for legal assistance across Indian Country, and NARF is doing as much as we can. With your help, we have fought for 48 years and we continue to fight.

It is hard to understand the extent of the attacks on Indian Country. We are sending a short series of emails this month with a few examples of attacks that are happening across Indian Country and how we are standing firm for justice.

Today, we look at recent effort to undo laws put in place to protect Native American children and families. All children deserve to be raised by loving families and communities. In the 1970s, Congress realized that state agencies and courts were disproportionately removing American Indian and Alaska Native children from their families. Often these devastating removals were due to an inability or unwillingness to understand Native cultures, where family is defined broadly and raising children is a shared responsibility. To stop these destructive practices, Congress passed the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA).

After forty years, ICWA has proven to be largely successful and many states have passed their own ICWAs. This success, however, is now being challenged by large, well-financed opponents who are actively and aggressively seeking to undermine ICWA’s protections for Native children. We are seeing lawsuits across the United States that challenge ICWA’s protections. NARF is working with partners to defend the rights of Native children and families.

Indian Country is under attack. We need you. Please join the ranks of Modern Day Warriors. Please donate today to help Native people protect their rights.
