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.

Together, we can educate, enlighten, and empower.November is celebrated as “Native American Heritage Month.” At Native News Online, we amplify Native voices and share our relatives’ unique perspectives every day of the year. We believe every month should celebrate Native American heritage.
If you appreciate our commitment to Native voices and our mission to tell stories that connect us to our roots and inspire understanding and respect, we hope you will consider making a donation this month to support our work. For those who commit to a recurring donation of $12 per month or more, or make a one-time donation of $150 or greater, we're excited to offer you a copy of our upcoming Indian Boarding School publication and access to our quarterly Founder’s Circle meetings and newsletter.
