Indian Country Today

The new year has already brought plenty of news across Indian Country. We learned more about the McGirt decision, lost co-founder of the American Indian Movement Clyde Bellecourt and explained how important redistricting is to Native voices.

Also, ICT launched a new yearlong project on Indigenous economics. "What is the state of Indigenous nations’ economies? How can we measure? Is there a way to represent that in a graphic?" Those are just a few questions ICT hopes to answer.
