MPR Presents: Indigenous & Media Community Roundtable

Tuesday, June 28
Show | 11:45am

In partnership with We Are Still Here Minnesota, and MIGIZI, MPR will host three community conversations involving media professionals and Indigenous community members. Led by Indigenous community leaders and moderated by David Cournoyer, a tribal member and former Twin Cities TV reporter, these virtual Zoom events will challenge problematic racial narratives that surround Native communities, seeking more authentic, complete and accurate portrayals of Native communities and issues. Each session will explore the role that media can play in community solutions for changing problematic racial narratives through exchange, listening and self-reflection.

Who should attend? Media professionals and community members interested in more accurate and complete narratives about Indigenous communities and issues
