The Red Press Initiative seeks opinion from consumers of tribal media

This groundbreaking initiative has been generously funded by the Ford Foundation, and has been joined by other press freedom advocates including the Committee to Protect Journalists, Reporters Without Borders, the Democracy Fund, the Indigenous Media Freedom Alliance, and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press.

NAJA believes that the accurate and contextual reporting about Indigenous people and communities is necessary to overcome the biases and stereotypes commonly portrayed in popular media. Robust and diligent tribal media operations must be at the heart of the effort to curb these practices.

The Red Press Initiative will research and gather feedback on the vitality of press freedom in Indian Country. The reported findings will provide the basis for the development of trainings, materials, and an educational outreach campaign to enhance and expand press freedom across Indian Country.
