American Indian Journalism Institute

The American Indian Journalism Institute began since 2001, in partnership with the University of South Dakota and in cooperation with the Native American Journalist Association (NAJA). AIJI has been a premier journalism training, scholarship and internship program for aspiring journalists from diverse backgrounds. At Institute sessions, students learnedbasic journalism practices, participated in educational field trips, reported, wrote and produced multimedia projects. The goal of AIJI has been to recruit, train, mentor and retain diverse journalists for media careers. NAJA and the Newseum Institute are working toward a new program beginning in 2014 that will provide training, mentoring and practical experience for those entering the digital, multi-media world of journalism.
