Monday, May 3, is World Press Freedom Day, which celebrates the importance of news and information as a public good — while leaving no one behind.
A Brief Note from the Publisher
Native News Online upholds this tenet by providing accurate, timely and free news to Indian Country, while also informing non-Natives about those things important to Indigenous peoples in the United States and Canada.
This has proven especially true during the Covid-19 pandemic that hit Indian Country harshly. Since the beginning of the pandemic, Native News Online has published hundreds of Covid-related stories to ensure our tribal communities have access to accurate information about the deadly disease.
All for the public good.
