To our Native American readers:

Native News Online is launching an election survey to determine what issues are most important to our tribal citizens and Native communities as we head into the 2022 midterm elections. 

As one of America’s most-read Native news sources, Native News Online feels strongly that American Indians, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians should have an opportunity to give voice to the topics and issues that are important to them. 

The 2022 midterm elections are important to Native Americans because the control of Congress — both in the House and Senate —is at stake. Having elected members of Congress who are favorable toward continuing the progress in Indian Country is essential for funding, services and consideration of the issues that matter most to us. Likewise, having a governor who understands Native American issues is vital for a good working relationship between our sovereign tribal nations and the state. 

Our survey was developed to give you an opportunity to have your voice heard. That’s important to us at Native News Online

To be sure, Indian Country has a voice, and always has, but we want to help beat that drum a little harder and make sure we are heard. 

You can take the survey here or below in the embedded window.  

Thank you for sharing your voice.

Native News is free to read.

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.

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