Native Americans make up about 2 percent of the U.S. population, and belong to more than 500 federally recognized tribes, often making for a hard-to-reach yet diverse population to cover.

In most cases, tribes also have close relationships with federal agencies, which are obligated to provide or fund a range of services on reservations as the result of treaties or other agreements. And this means there are almost always documents and data for reporters to obtain for stories --if you know what you’re looking for and can work past the challenges.
