Digital Reporting Panel at Northwestern University


The NAJA board of directors joined the Northwestern University community on April 4 for an open forum panel discussion titled “Digital Reporting in Indigenous Communities.”

The panel helped journalists working in Indigenous communities to push past (stereo)typical coverage and toward stories that enlighten both Native and non-Native audiences.

The discussion focused on the use of data, ethics and three-dimensional coverage to move newsrooms from viewing Native people as subjects of reporting, to understanding them as a complex, engaged audience.

The panel was moderated by the Center for Native American and Indigenous Research Director Dr. Patty Loew, and will feature NAJA President Tristan Ahtone, NAJA Vice President Dr. Victoria LaPoe, and NAJA board member Graham Brewer.
