Native News Online's coverage has had a significant impact on changing the narrative about Indian Country, including attention from other media. This page highlights some of our impact, awards, media collaborations, and international, national, and state media mentions and pickups over the past year.
Blue Stem Prairie highlighted our reporter Darren Thompson's story about Minnesota state rep Heather Keeler's proposed legislation to recognize Indigenous Peoples Day as a state holiday.

The American Press Institute cited an op-ed in its newsletter about the Oklahoma Media Center's ongoing journalism project to cover the McGirt v. Oklahoma Supreme Court case and its impact on tribal sovereignty.
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), the attacks on tribal sovereignty at the Supreme Court 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. Please consider a recurring monthly donation of $5 or $10 to help fund us throughout the year. Whatever you can do, it helps fund our Indigenous-led newsroom and our ability to cover Native news.
