Native Americans public relations professionals—spread across some 570 tribes across the US—have had to overcome communications challenges few of us have had to face. Many serve as social activists campaigning against environmental infringements and advocating for better healthcare on the reservation. Others serve to rectify long-standing misperceptions about Native Americans, working to eliminate demeaning portrayals in our popular culture in movies, sports, commercials, and textbooks. And many serve to represent tribal interests before big business and government, while preserving their unique tribal identities and passing the culture along to the next generations.
During our Native American Month celebration on November 11, meet the public relations leaders of tribes from across the country, as they share inspiring stories about the role of communications in promoting economic opportunity and preserving well-being throughout all of the tribes.
