Native News Honors Project

Native News LogoThe Native News Hon­ors Project is reported, photo­graphed, edited and designed by stu­dents of the Uni­ver­sity of Mon­tana School of Jour­nal­ism. Each year, teams of print and photojournalism students travel to Montana's seven Indian reservations to investigate and document in-depth stories on a single topic of importance to the state's Native population. These stories appear in a publication that is distributed throughout the state and the nation.

For "Across the Divide," the 25th issue of the University of Montana’s Native News Honors Project, eight teams of reporters went out to uncover the state of politics within Montana’s 12 Native American tribes spanning across seven reservations and for one landless tribe. For more, please visit the Native News webpage.
