Ten newsrooms came together to explore how to best represent and reach Indigenous communities facing generation-defining economic challenges in this series, an early example of the signature projects from the Rural News Network.
Read stories in the collaboration below.
Seven INN members and three tribal outlets used audience engagement and a new model of editorial leadership to produce a series on the state of the economy in rural Indian Country, building relationships in tribal communities.
The collaboration participants are INN members Indian Country Today, InvestigateWest, Buffalo’s Fire, KOSU, New Mexico In Depth, Wisconsin Watch and Underscore. They are joined by the Rawhide Press, Mvskoke Media and Osage News. Seven participants are members of the Native American Journalists Association (NAJA), which provided guidance on the development of the collaboration.
This project was made possible through funding from the Walton Family Foundation.Back to top
