Q- Should there be more transparency in financial, health reporting, politics from Indigenous communities? Was publishing chief salaries an ok thing to do?
Robert: We're a small tribe and one of those chiefs that made lots of money was from our tribe. I was interviewed for a matter unrelated to that (Inspired), asked what they were going to do about chief. I don't know if it's any of your business, but we're going to do things in our way on our time to make our chief accountable.
Asking questions is important, chiefs' salary reporting done the wrong way by the feds.
Samantha: Absolutely report on those things; think about why those questions are being asked.
Erin: I think it's part of the story. Beat of reconciliation a reporter's dream gig.
