I’m so honored and excited to share the second of two episodes of Native Report (WDSE/WRPT) that my reporting partner Toni Reveles and I spent the last few months of 2020 working on.
In this episode, we interviewed Chairman Andrew Salas and Tribal Biologist Matthew Teutimez of the Kizh Nation: Gabrieleño Band of Mission Indians about their tribe’s fight for federal recognition.
We’re ecstatic to be a part of season 16 of Native Report! Please check out the whole episode and more Native Report episodes here! Share, like and follow Native Report (WDSE/WRPT) for more amazing stories!
This segment was shot and edited by Toni Reveles. It was produced and reported by me, also with some supplemental footage and b-roll contributions.
