Covering Indian Country Blog
It's a legal state. It's a state of mind. And it's the cultural landscape that is home to more than 4 million Native Americans whose lives have been often overlooked, misrepresented or sloppily reported by the media.
The mission of the "Covering Indian Country" traveling seminar, which inspired this blog, is to improve that coverage. Our goal is to introduce journalists who are unfamiliar with that community to a world where stereotypes and myths sometimes prevail, while welcoming back other journalists to a world where untold stories are waiting to be explored.
