Our panelists will offer advice on moving beyond superficial coverage of Native American tribes and breaking enterprise and investigative stories on or off the beat. We'll discuss projects tackling thorny issues such as enrollment and blood quantum, federal housing policy and corruption within tribal governments. We'll tell you how to use FOIA to gather records on sovereign nations and how to use tribal law and procedure to gather previously undisclosed tribal government records. We'll also discuss tips on developing sources, building trust and staying ahead of your competition covering these issues.
