Indigenous Journalists Association brings storytellers together for Global Investigative Journalism Conference in Sweden

IJA/GIJC Indigenous journalism fellowship focused on global collaborations and networking

The Indigenous Journalists Association (IJA) and the Global Investigative Journalism Network (GIJN) are bringing Indigenous journalists together for a four day fellowship Sept. 19-22 at the Global Investigative Journalism Conference (GIJC) in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Indigenous journalists from around the world share similar successes and struggles in their newsrooms. Indigenous communities across mother earth share common ground and news from our nations is often unreported. IJA is creating space for fellowship participants to discuss the stories that need to be told.

IJA is hosting a pre-conference day workshop to network and collaborate on international Indigenous investigations, facilitated by IJA Associate Director Francine Compton and IJA Membership Manager Sterling Cosper.

IJA is proud to announce the 2023 cohort and their media outlets:

Tristan Ahtone (Grist), Ting-Hui Hung Chien (CTS), Pauly Denetclaw (ICT), Jan Gunnar Furuly (Aftenposten), Brittany Guyot (APTN), Ku`u Kauanoe (Honolulu Civil Beat), Moana Maniapoto (Whakaata Māori), Ketzali Awalb’iitz Pérez (Ruda Magazine), 

Bryan Pollard (AP), Linnea Rasmus (YLE), Dev Kumar Sunuwar (Indigenous Television), Maria Saijets (SVT), Christine Trudeau (Independent), Vanessa Teteye (Agenda Propia).

Delegates from the IJA/GIJN fellowship will speak about their work on two separate programs at the conference: 

  • Investigating Indigenous Stories: A Roundtable, Sept. 20 3:30 p.m. CEST
  • Indigenous Investigations, Sept. 21, 1:30 p.m. CEST
