Reporting in Indigenous Communities

Duncan McCue, a reporter for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and adjunct professor at the University of British Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism, created Reporting in Indigenous Communities (RIIC), an online educational guide to assist journalists who report in Indigenous communities, via a yearlong John S. Knight Journalism Fellowship at Stanford University.

The guide comprises three areas of reporting where journalists face challenges when producing news stories about Indigenous peoples.

1)    AT THE DESK – how to research and pitch stories;
2)    IN THE FIELD – how to gather information for these stories; and
3)    ON THE AIR – how to present stories about Indigenous peoples.

At the website, you'll also find an abundance of resources, a reporter's checklist and more.
