This program is the latest in a series marking the 30th anniversary of the Freedom Forum, which was founded on July 4, 1991.
Through several initiatives including the American Indian Journalism Institute, the Native American Journalism Career Conference and the Crazy Horse Journalism Workshop, the Freedom Forum has been on the forefront of increasing representation of Native American journalists.
