The Native American Journalists Association's Guide offers a context checklist to consider when reporting on Indigenous communities: government, economy, geography, treaties, people and culture.
"Historically Navajos have lived off the land. But decades of assimilation, forced relocation and dependence on federal food distribution programs changed that. Navajo farmer Tyrone Thompson is on a mission to help people return to their roots. He's even taken to social media to teach traditional farming techniques."
"National parks, often romanticized as "America's Best Idea," are also one of its whitest."
"The National Black Environmental Justice Network (NBEJN), which aims to fight environmental inequality and racism, is relaunching amid the disproportionate impact that the coronavirus has had on African Americans."
The Society of Environmental Journalists stands with journalists of color who are shedding light on systemic racism, inequities, and discrimination inside and outside of the newsroom. We condemn violence against people who are peacefully protesting police killings of Black people, and violence against journalists reporting on them. We condemn the silencing of Black voices in any newsroom, as well as voices from other underrepresented communities.
