White Journalists in Native America

Thu. 11/10 11a: The recent ABC television show 20/20 featured a show called “Children of the Plains” shed light on the plight of Indian children on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota. It turned out to be the highest rated show for the network in months. 

It begs the question about the role of white journalists in Native America.

Can we befriend our neighboring journalists to help us with getting our message out? Why aren’t more white journalists doing stories on Native America?

Invited guests include journalist Catherine Robbins, author of “All Indians Do Not Live in Teepees (or Casinos).”
