Not up to standard


I appreciate Associate Editor Tristan Ahtone’s account of the Indigenous storytelling tradition, and I’m glad to hear of the success of these motivated and talented girls, but journalism this is not. HCN has such a wonderful history of hard-hitting investigative journalism, stories that involve research, face-to-face interviews, extensive travel and persistence when confronted with less than cooperative people, bureaucratic obstacles, and passionate partisanship from multiple perspectives. I come to expect that standard from you. The Nizhóní Girls story doesn’t meet your standards by any measure.
