As Indian Country Today editor Mark Trahant recently sent out to you, our amazing readers and supporters in Indian Country: "Can you believe it? Indian Country Today has been back for a year now. We think we have done a lot of good work over the past twelve months."
As part of our official first year back, which was June 1st, we have received a special message from former NASA astronaut Dr. John Herrington, Chickasaw, and Ariel Tweto, Inupiaq, from the Discovery Channel's Flying Wild Alaska.
Indian Country Today is excited to have been around in its newest incarnation to celebrate its first anniversary! If you would like, please share your own message with us using the hashtag #ICTOneYear!
We need support from readers, tribes, and foundations, to build up our news operation. We now have a track record, a year of producing thoughtful, in-depth journalism about Indian Country. And now we are expanding to bring you, even more, news and open up a career path for the next generation of Native American journalists. Our “business” model is public media. We provide a free news service to readers and to tribal media (because they can use any of our stories in their publications for free). To make that work we need support from you, the readers.
