Native American Journalists Association

The Native American Journalists Association, based in Norman, Oklahoma on the campus of the University of Oklahoma, is dedicated to supporting Native Americans in journalism, and focuses on improving communications among Native peoples, and between Native Americans and the general public. The association was founded as the Native American Press Association in 1983 with initial funding provided by the Gannett Foundation. Adrian C. Louis, Jose Barreiro, and Tim Giago, among others, were founding members.

The work of the 501(c) organization encompasses a wide range of issues and activities affecting the development of Native media and communications. The organization has advocated for better representations of Native Americans in the media. For example, they spoke out against the United States government’s use of Geronimo‘s name as a code for Osama bin Laden. They host workshops and conferences to teach and share the journalistic skills necessary to cover issues in and about Indian Country. They are a member group of UNITY: Journalists of Color, Inc., an organization founded in 1994. Each year, the organization recognizes Native American journalists and associate members with journalism awards for excellence in coverage on a variety of topic areas.
