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.

Megwetch for your time and support.

Do you appreciate a Native perspective on the news? 

For the past decade-plus, we’ve covered the important Indigenous stories that are often overlooked by other media. From the protests at Standing Rock and the toppling of colonizer statues during the racial equity protests, to the ongoing epidemic of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW) and the past-due reckoning related to assimilation, cultural genocide and Indian Boarding Schools, we have been there to provide a Native perspective and elevate Native voices.

Our news is free for everyone to read, but it is not free to produce. That’s why we’re asking you to make a donation this month to help support our efforts. Any contribution — big or small — helps us remain a force for change in Indian Country and continue telling the stories that are so often ignored, erased or overlooked.  Most often, our donors make a one-time gift of $20 or more, while many choose to make a recurring monthly donation of $5 or $10.  Whatever you can do, it helps fund our Indigenous-led newsroom and our ability to cover Native news. 

Donate to Native News Online today and support independent Indigenous journalism. Thank you.
