I am a long-time writer on human rights and culture, with a focus on indigenous issues. The George Polk Center for Investigative Reporting, the Fund for Investigative Journalism and other organizations have supported my work. Recognition includes the Richard LaCourse Award for Investigative Reporting from the Native American Journalists Association, of which I am an associate (non-Native) member, Leonard C. Goodman awards, and Pulitzer nominations. I am a contributing writer for publications covering news, politics and the arts. During two decades in magazines, I was an editor at several national consumer magazines.
