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.

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 $25 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.
