Native Community Media Day
November 19, 2018
Today is Native Community Media Day. In November 2017 both the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors and the Hoopa Valley Tribal Council proclaimed the 3rd Monday of November as Native Community Media Day. A recognition of all the ways Native people use organized Media formats to share journalistic news, share awareness of community affair events and keep each other informed of family and community celebrations, notices and connections. No healthy society existed long without a means of communications. “Once our news traveled as fast as the rivers flowed, or faster if one could run faster than the river. We had ridge runners who ran the trails shared and gathered news from village to village along both rivers.” A paraphrase of a comment made by Melodie George Moore.
