Reporting on Tribal Issues

Albuquerque, NM – Selected journalists from across the US gathered in Albuquerque recently to learn how they can improve crime reporting in Native American communities.

The seminar was one of the first intensive efforts to help journalists get closer to sources and include the native perspective in their stories.

KUNM's Colleen Keane attended the seminar and found that while journalists face a multitude of challenges while covering crime in Native American communities, many are eager to learn how to overcome them.
