Reporting on Native communities can present many challenges, not the least of which is finding and using reliable data on issues those communities face. In this panel you'll hear from two reporters working to close this information gap. You'll hear how High Country News is handling data leaks and confidential news tips from tribal government employees, as well as analyzing historical data for investigative reporting in Indian Country. You'll also learn about a project gathering information on missing and murdered Indigenous women. This panel was planned in collaboration with the Native American Journalists Association.
