Native American voters may be the "difference makers" in this year’s election.  Join us for a Native-centered and non-partisan live streaming forum on Monday at 7 p.m. EDT to talk about the impact that American Indians and Alaska Natives will play in the upcoming election.  

And be sure to stay tuned to Native News Online for Native-centered lection coverage beginning October 15 and running through Election Day and beyond. We’ll cover the campaigns and their relationships with Indian Country, release results of our national survey of Native voters and bring you important news on voter suppression issues — among many other topics.  

In addition to ongoing coverage, we’ve also partnered with the Multicultural Media Correspondents Association and Verizon Media to deliver two live streaming events focused around what matters to Native Voters and Indian Country in the upcoming election.  Join us:

Support Independent Indigenous Journalism

Native News Online is an independent, Indigenous-led newsroom with a crucial mission:  We want to change the narrative about Indian Country. We do this by producing intelligent, fact-based journalism that tells the full story from all corners of Indian Country.  We pride ourselves on covering the tribes you may have never heard of before and by respecting and listening to the communities we serve through our reporting. As newsrooms across the country continue to shrink, coverage of Indian Country is more important than ever, and we are committed to filling this ever-present hole in journalism.

Because we believe everyone in Indian Country deserves equal access to news and commentary pertaining to them, their relatives and their communities, the story you’ve just finished was free — and we want to keep it that way, for all readers. But we hope it inspires you to make a gift to Native News Online so that we can continue publishing more stories that make a difference to Native people, whether they live on or off the reservation. Your donation will help us keep producing quality journalism and elevating Indigenous voices. Any contribution of any amount, big or small, gives us a better, stronger future and allows us to remain a force for change.
