Thanks to a generous grant from the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, Native News Online has an immediate opening for a full-time staff reporter to help us expand our coverage of American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) healthcare, education, tribal economic development, Tribal sovereignty, and the environment. 

We’re looking for a highly motivated, curious Indigenous journalist to join our virtual newsroom and produce daily journalism as part of our award-winning team. Ideally, we'd like to find an journalist to lead our coverage on AI/AN education news or tribal economic development issues, while supplementing our beat coverage of AI/AN health and the environment. Given the breadth and importance of Tribal sovereignty, all reporters cover the issue for Native News Online.   

We're also looking for one or more journalists to supplement our coverage as independent contractors or freelance writers.  

Native News Online is an 11-year-old independent news website covering a range of important social, cultural and economic stories aimed at changing the narrative about Indian Country with fair and accurate reporting. 

Our newsroom applies old-school journalism techniques to the digital era. We value conducting research, asking strong questions, working with editors to hone story angles, and performing rigorous fact-checking before stories are published. 

American Indian or Alaska Native candidates with a journalism or communications degree or 1-2 years of experience in journalism or related fields are encouraged to apply. We will provide training and mentoring in journalism and offer competitive pay, benefits, and a flexible work environment.  

If you're interested in applying, please send an introductory email, your resume and any writing samples to [email protected]. 

Together, we can educate, enlighten, and empower.

November is celebrated as “Native American Heritage Month.” At Native News Online, we amplify Native voices and share our relatives’ unique perspectives every day of the year. We believe every month should celebrate Native American heritage. 
If you appreciate our commitment to Native voices and our mission to tell stories that connect us to our roots and inspire understanding and respect, we hope you will consider making a donation this month to support our work. For those who commit to a recurring donation of $12 per month or more, or make a one-time donation of $150 or greater, we're excited to offer you a copy of our upcoming Indian Boarding School publication and access to our quarterly Founder’s Circle meetings and newsletter.
