Native Public Media Press Release
Native Public Media Creates and Implements First Branded Digital Journalism Curriculum for Native Americans, Flagstaff, Arizona – January 23, 2012
Native Public Media, an organization dedicated to serving Native radio broadcasters and media makers, announced it will launch its Digital Journalism and Storytelling Intensive on May 28, 2012.
Matthew Rantanen, Chair of Native Public Media’s Board of Directors and Director of the Southern California Tribal Digital Village knows what it takes to bring broadband to rural and remote tribal communities in Southern California and the growing need for a digital workforce that respects culture and history.
“This summer intensive is meant to support our Native journalists and community storytellers who are interested in learning and applying new media technologies. While new media has expanded the possibilities of story collecting and sharing, and the democratization of personal voice, this effort validates the Native American perspective and voice,” concludes Rantanen.
