Media Covering Obama in Alaska Missed Tribal Story

"President Barack Obama's visit to Alaska was inspiring,"Mark Trahant wrote Thursday for his Trahant Reports. "I eagerly watched everything I could see online: The official restoration of the name Denali, his powerful words on the climate, his visits to Resurrection Bay, and his interaction with Alaska’s Native communities. I especially loved the Yup’ik dancing (and the president showing his moves).

"But there is one story that's missing from the national accounts of the president's visit: the role of tribes in determining Alaska's future. The president himself referred to this debate in several ways.

"The first mention was in his statement to tribal leaders when he said: 'My administration also is taking new action to make sure that Alaska Natives have direct input into the management of Chinook salmon stocks, something that has been of great concern here.' Then a few sentences later he promised to follow up on 'everything from voting rights to land trusts.'

"Those last two words are the story that needs to be told. . . ."

Oakland Residents Trained as Correspondents for 4th Year

"When we in the media tell the story of East Oakland, we often weave a narrative of crime, violence and despair,"Martin G. Reynolds reported Friday for the Bay Area News Group. "And while significant challenges exist within this community, often untold or underreported are the stories of vibrancy, resilience, activism, diversity and pride.

"In late July, the newest Oakland Voices cohort began and, over the next nine months, these 12 East Oakland residents will be trained as community correspondents and write stories they feel need to be told.

"All the stories will appear on the www.oaklandvoices.us website and some will appear in this newspaper.

"The goal of the program is to empower residents to be the storytellers of their neighborhoods and to build a relationship between the community and this newspaper.

"Former Oakland Tribune columnist Brenda Payton enters her second year as our Oakland Voices coordinator, providing guidance and the benefit of her more than three decades of journalism experience.

"Oakland Voices began in 2010 and now enters its fourth cohort. The program is run in partnership with the Robert C. Maynard Institute for Journalism Education, an Oakland-based national nonprofit dedicated to diversifying America's newsrooms, and is funded in large part by The California Endowment, a nonpartisan health care foundation. Voices has been replicated in Jackson, Mississippi, and has another cohort underway in Sacramento. . . ."
