Turtle Island News - North America's #1 Native Weekly Newspaper
The National Indigenous Times Newspaper
The National Indigenous Times first hit the streets on February 27, 2002. The paper is staffed and owned by Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians and we are proud of the dedicated team of predominantly Indigenous Australian writers and columnists who contribute to the publication. One of our primary goals is to bridge the knowledge gap for mainstream Australians of the aspirations of Indigenous Australians. We want to keep informing all Australians of the social and political issues affecting Indigenous Australians and to promote to them the many positive achievements in business, academia, sport and community life generally of Indigenous Australians.
Indigenous Peoples / IPS Inter Press Service
Despite what you may have heard, the news is not all bad for the world's roughly 350 million indigenous peoples. As the United Nations Decade for Indigenous Peoples winds down in 2004 its accomplishments include the creation of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, and a special rapporteur on the human rights of these peoples. Unfortunately, those institutional changes have yet to touch the lives of most of the planet's "tribal", "aboriginal", "native" or "first" peoples, and so their advocates are pushing U.N. states to declare a second indigenous decade.
IPS will continue to follow that process, as well as to report "from the ground" on local developments - in politics, health,
education, culture, human rights and every aspect of the lives of indigenous peoples.

Reporting in Indigenous Communities

He pitched the idea — an online educational guide to assist journalists who report in Indigenous communities — to the John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships at Stanford University, who offered a supportive environment for a year to make it happen. RIIC launched in Fall 2011.
