NAJA 2023 National Native Media Conference

Event Date: 
August 10, 2023 to August 12, 2023

The Native American Journalists Association will host the 2023 National Native Media Conference Aug. 10-12 downtown at the Delta Hotel and RBC Convention Center Winnipeg.

This year marks 40 years that Indigenous journalists have worked to support and sustain NAJA. Originally formed as the Native American Press Association in 1983, the name changed in 1990, to be more inclusive of broadcast journalists. The organization has grown from just a handful of reporters to a membership of nearly 1,000, which includes Indigenous journalists, funders, educators and partners across the United States and Canada.

Winnipeg is home to Compton and a place that became a cornerstone of Indigenous journalism.

NAJA will facilitate conference program sessions about best practices in Indigenous media, training and workshops to support and enhance the knowledge and skills of journalists covering Indigenous communities.

NAJA is also celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2023 by giving away 40 memberships to new members. NAJA will offer a total of 40 free memberships to students, professionals and associate members across the U.S., and Canada.
