Today on Your Call: What is the state of Native American Media?
On today's Your Call we’ll speak with Native journalists about the role Native Americans are playing in today’s media landscape. Why do we so rarely see stories about natives by natives? According to Loris Taylor, president of Native Public Media, “Native Americans face a huge digital divide.”* But radio is one medium that remains vibrant for native communities. What is the power of media for keeping culture alive? Join us at 10 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Where have you seen good reporting by or about Native Americans?
