Tribal Paper Returns to Print →

via Editor and Publisher:

When the Hopi tribal newspaper, the Hopi Tutuveni, closed its doors in 2009, the Native American community lost an important voice. But in 2010, the Hopi Tribal Council appropriated funding to re-establish the newspaper and earlier this year hired Mihio Manus as managing editor. 

The first issue of the eight-page broadsheet paper hit newsstands in April and will continue as a biweekly publication. Manus said Hopi Tutuveni will include tribal government happenings, features, and sports. It will also cover local, state, and national news pertaining to the tribal community. 

FJP: A nice bit of news, especially considering that Pew’s State of the News Media 2012 Report described the year for Native newspapers as “difficult,” while TV and radio saw growth. (Broadband connection is also low, and many news organization have moved straight to mobile.)
