About the Author:

This guide about American Indians is the Native American Journalists Association's update of a guide it first published in 1998. That original helped inspire this series of 100-question guides. The series follows a four-dimensional ethic of respect, accuracy, authority and accessibility.
This guide was updated by:

  • Mary Hudetz (Crow), president of the Native American Journalists Association and editor of Native Peoples Magazine
  • Tristan Ahtone (Kiowa of Oklahoma), NAJA treasurer and journalism ethics and initiatives committee chair and New Mexico public health reporter at KUNM
  • Dalton Walker (Ojibwe), NAJA board member and web editor/social media manager at gazette.com
  • Joe Grimm, editor for the MSU School of Journalism's series of guides to cultural competence.

The original guide was created and developed by Reginald Stuart, corporate recruiter. It was researched and written by Linda Fullerton, St. Paul Pioneer Press. Questions and answers were prepared with the assistance of Elizabeth Homer (Osage of Oklahoma), director of the Office of American Indian Trust; Eric B. Wilson (Nez Perce of Idaho), program analyst, Officee of American Indian Trust; Thomas-Sweeney (Citizen Potawatomi of Oklahoma), public affairs chief, Bureau of Indian Affairs; Iris Friday (Tlingit of Alaska), publications editor and development director. Assistance came from the National Congress of American Indians, National Indian Gaming Association, American Indian Higher Education Consortium; Labriola National American Indian Data Center and the American Indian Movement. The Wichita Eagle printed it.
