Native Journalism Benefits Us All
Writer’s block, oy, what a flu that is to have. Last year, I believe I did not write, and if I did it was of no consequence. However, there were a great many thinkers that did write and contributed to the ICTMN Op/Ed pages. Why? Because we have impact where it counts. Our readership crosses many lines, and many barriers.
Every one of our writers are either civilians or players in NDN politics and social issues. The Natives and the non-Natives that you read in the Opinion section are either civilians or players in NDN politics and social issues. But non-Native isn’t the right term; I consider the non-Natives who I work with daily as Indigenous Identified. Meaning these people share the same ideals and hopes as Native people do. I have no problems with turning to our Indigenous Identified allies for a point of view, or answers.
