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.

As a valued Native News Online supporter and reader, please consider making a donation today to celebrate World Press Freedom Day.
