Can we improve coverage of Indigenous issues through collaboration?

Session hashtag: #CAJ16discourseWhen the Royal Commission Report on Aboriginal Peoples came out in 1996, every major media outlet covered the news event — but reporting quickly fizzled, before getting to the longtail of how Canada addressed the challenges raised, or not.Today, on the heels of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, we have an opportunity to deeply report on the difficult, systemic issues affecting Indigenous peoples in Canada.Discourse Media will share findings from its six-month research into how we cover Indigenous people and perspectives and announce a new collaborative project, including funding and partnership opportunities for interested media outlets and journalists.
