Weekly News

It is an honor to have the opportunity to assist in bringing news and issues of the tribal nations to DailyKos and NAN.

When I say assist, that is exactly what I mean. This isn’t my weekly news diary, it is ours.

With that said, I would like to ask for suggestions as to categories of topics, issues, any suggestions or questions.

Below the fold I kicked off with a few questions that came to mind.


Do we want news categories?

Do we want individuals to focus on news pieces on specific topics/issues?

Any suggestions on specific formats?

Again, this is our weekly news, so please give feedback here.

Posting links to news resources here would be helpful too, as a shared resource we can all take some time to look through them. What one of us might overlook could be recognized by another as a significant piece that should be included.

What I don’t know about in all aspects of life is a lot, on any given day.

And I don’t know what I don’t know, so I’m asking for clarity, guidance, and wisdom where mine is lacking.

Again, I am grateful to be a part of this community and look forward to what we as a community put together each week.  


  1. I think you’ll find so many stories that you’ll have to cull them down. You might want to categorize them into news from Indian Country USA, news from First Nations of Canada and news from Indigenous Nations from Central and South America. But that leaves out Mexico!

    On some of the stories people will want to take action, things like the anti-mining and environmental distruction stories so where possible we need to give them some help by suggesting what they can do.

    Or perhaps I’m making things too complicated and you’ll decide to just post the important links and let folks read.

  2. to tell you I did.

    I’ll try not to do that again.

    We’ve been posting news items there and there is a vote going on about what to call this news series.

    I’ll send out an email for people to vote.

  3. I think we should include indigenous news from outside of North America–Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean.

    There are also distinctions between what’s happening on the reservations and what’s happening to Indians in the cities.

    There’s also the distinction between the US tribes with federal recognition and those without.
