Tim Giago: Trailblazing Native American Journalist

From an AP story by Gretchen Ehlke headlined “Tim Giago, trailblazing Native American journalist, dies at 88”:

Tim Giago, the founder of the first independently owned Native American newspaper in the United States, has died.

Giago, who died in Rapid City, South Dakota, created an enduring legacy during his more than four decades of work in South Dakota journalism.

Giago, who was a member of the Oglala Lakota tribe, founded The Lakota Times with his first wife, Doris, in 1981, and quickly showed that he wasn’t afraid to challenge those in power and advocate for American Indians, she said.
