The University of Kansas William Allen White Journalism School has launched a Native Storytelling Workshop for high school students, in partnership with the Native American Journalists Association (NAJA) and Haskell Indian Nations University. This workshop will take place June 12-16, 2022 at the University of Kansas campus in Lawrence.
Native high school students from across the country are encouraged to apply. If chosen, the students will get to visit the KU campus for four days. Students who attend will receive a room and all meals for the duration of the workshop. Scholarships will be available for those who may need assistance with travel costs to and from Lawrence, KS.
While there, students will have opportunities to experience the field of journalism by learning about the basics of online and digital news content creation, podcasting, and multimedia journalism.
KU Journalism professors Dr. Melissa Greene-Blye (Miami Tribe of Oklahoma), and Professor Rebekka Schlichting (Ioway Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska) will be leading the workshop. Joining them is Jared Nally (Miami Tribe of Oklahoma), an award-winning former Editor-in-Chief of Haskell’s The Indian Leader.
Interested students can apply here.

We hope you enjoyed the story you've just read. For the past dozen years, we’ve covered the most important news stories that are usually overlooked by other media. From the protests at Standing Rock and the rise of the American Indian Movement (AIM), to the ongoing epidemic of Murdered and Missing Indigenous People (MMIP) and the past-due reckoning related to assimilation, cultural genocide and Indian Boarding Schools.
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 to help support our efforts. Any contribution — big or small — helps. Most readers donate between $10 and $25 to help us cover the costs of salaries, travel and maintaining our digital platforms. If you’re in a position to do so, we ask you to consider making a recurring donation of $12 per month to join the Founder's Circle. All donations help us remain a force for change in Indian Country and tell the stories that are so often ignored, erased or overlooked.
