Support Indigenous Journalists in Michigan!

Join me in supporting Indigenous journalism in Michigan! 

The Mishigamiing Journalism Project provides support for Indigenous people to report, consult, and train in the Traverse City Record-Eagle newsroom. 

The MJP was borne out of the recognition that media coverage has previously failed to cover Indigenous people and communities in Michigan in a robust, nuanced, or properly contextualized way. 

The Mishigamiing Journalism Project has four goals:

1. Put Indigenous reporters in newsrooms in Michigan. Train them, pay them, and create jobs for them.

2. Make newsrooms in Michigan safe and inclusive for Indigenous journalists.

3. Make coverage of Indigenous issues and tribal affairs in Michigan more thorough, just, and meaningful.

4. Empower Indigenous people to report in their own communities and beyond.

Your donation will go toward paying Indigenous journalists to report, consult, and receive training in participating Michigan newsrooms. Their journalism work will be published in the Traverse City Record-Eagle and Indigenizing the News. 

The fellowships are offered on a rolling basis and are subject to funding availability. They are currently administered by the Lake Superior Community Development Corporation/Keweenaw Bay Ojibwa Housing and Community Development Corporation, an Indigenous-owned 501c3.

Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause!
