Tribe To Notify Members Of Press Notices And Press Worthy Events

Feather News

In response to a Feather News request that seeks equal media access, the tribe's chief-of-staff, Chuck Bunnell, said all tribal members will be allowed access to press releases and notices on its web site as they are issued.

Also, tribal members will be given information on the web site as to "when and where we will be holding press worthy events before they happen and/or the same news that is released to the media after an event."

The Feather News will continue to monitor and ask for access that is no less restrictive than that offered to the local non-Indian media.
