Pollen Nation Magazine includes in-depth investigative journalism, commentary by leading Indigenous thinkers and writers, critiques and analysis of Eurocentric news coverage, explainer videos about complex topics, and podcasts featuring interviews with Indigenous leaders, activists, artists and academics. 

We are working towards building a quarterly printed publication! Right now we are publishing a digital newsletter with short-takes on the news every two weeks.

Our coverage focuses on the following areas:

  • Environmentalism and resistance movements

  • Natives in education

  • Sacred site protection and cultural preservation 

  • The Indigenous context to hot button issues

  • Federal Indian Law 

  • Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women - #MMIW

  • Native People in the Arts and Pop Culture

  • Important breakthroughs in Indigenous research


We ask pointed questions and intensely probe certain issues that pertain to our lived experiences as Indigenous people.

Not all investigations you may see presented in Pollen Nation Magazine seek to expose facts about a particular problem; some things we report are are data-driven reports presenting a deep analysis and interesting results.

We put a strong emphasis on factual accuracy, because the point of an in-depth investigation of an issue is to expose facts that spur change. We ascribe to the Society of Professional Journalists code of ethics.
