ABOUT THE PULITZER CENTER

In 2006, the Pulitzer Center opened its doors with a donated desk, modest seed funding, and high ambitions: to fill in the gaps in under-funded global reporting and inspire a new generation of journalists to cover the big global issues that affect us all. Since then, the Pulitzer Center has built a fantastic staff and expanded its funding and mission to support more than 170 reporting projects a year on pressing global issues, sparking high-impact stories in more than 600 news outlets annually. The Pulitzer Center is behind some of the best reporting of the last decade: on conflict and peace-building, environment and climate change, migration and human trafficking, emerging science and health issues, criminal justice, and much more. The organization’s projects have won the Pulitzer Prize, George Polk Awards, Peabodys, Emmys, National Magazine Awards and more. 

The Pulitzer Center has built a network of more than 1,300 professional journalists and college students and has forged strong partnerships with leading national and international media: The New York Times Magazine, Le Monde, PBS NewsHour, and The New Yorker, as well as local, regional, and specialty media outlets in all continents. The Pulitzer Center staff is global: a majority of the team is based in the Washington, D.C., area, with other staff members based in five countries outside the U.S.

The Pulitzer Center’s unique education and outreach program brings the organization’s projects and journalists into hundreds of school and university classrooms as well as a wide range of public forums. The Pulitzer Center works closely with a network of 35-plus universities, community colleges and HBCUs (historically black colleges and universities), bringing journalists onto campus in person and online and providing mentored reporting fellowships for students attending universities that are part of the Pulitzer Center Campus Consortium. The Pulitzer Center is also currently engaged in a major expansion of the organization’s educational work in the United States, as lead education partner for The New York Times on The 1619 Project; the Pulitzer Center is developing a similarly ambitious education program globally under the auspices of its Rainforest Journalism Fund and Rainforest Investigations Network.

Indigenous Affairs Editor

High Country News seeks an editor to oversee the work of our award-winning Indigenous Affairs Desk. This individual will lead a team of passionate journalists to produce stories that are important to Indigenous communities and tribal nations across the Western United States.  

HCN’s Indigenous Affairs coverage often focuses on the intersection of Indigenous people and nations with HCN’s other coverage areas, which include land, water, wildlife, conservation and climate change. But we also examine issues unique to Indigenous communities such as tribal sovereignty, the federal government’s unique relationship with, and responsibility to, Native people, post-colonialism and the legacy of genocide.

Duties will include:

  • Identifies key themes, stories and ideas that capture and define the present realities of Indigenous communities in the Western United States
  • Leads the Indigenous Affairs Desk to produce a range of stories, from deep-diving features and investigations, to news, analysis, perspectives, essays and humor
  • Ensures that the Indigenous Affairs Desk’s journalism is smart, curious, fair and eclectic, and in line with the organization’s mission of “inspiring people to act on behalf of the West’s diverse natural and human communities”
  • Engages in and initiates occasional collaborations with the desk editors responsible for the northern and southern parts of our coverage area
  • Hires, guides and mentors an assistant editor, interns, fellows and freelancers, with a focus on fostering Indigenous journalists

  • Manages an annual freelance budget, working with the Business Office to ensure that writers are paid promptly for their work
  • Represents HCN at conferences, speaking engagements and events

 

Skills and experience:

This position requires a sophisticated understanding of Indigeneity, as well as HCN’s other coverage areas, including the West’s land, water, wildlife, conservation and climate change. 

The ideal candidate will have the ability to write, assign and edit high volumes of editorial content for both our print magazine and digital platforms, as well as the ability to manage staff and contractors and to maintain a budget.

They will have a strong desire to work in a nonprofit media environment and support HCN’s mission. 

 

Compensation and general terms:

This is a full-time, exempt position with medical, dental and vision healthcare benefits; paid vacation leave starting at 12 days a year plus 9 paid HCN holiday days each year; paid sick and family leave benefits; and a salary in the range of $55,000 to $62,500 annual equivalent, dependent on skills and experience.

To apply, please send a résumé and cover letter to [email protected] with “Indigenous Affairs Editor” in the subject line. Please include information about your unique background, experience and insight into Indigenous people and nations.

Closing date for applications is May 26th, 2021.

 

Background:

High Country News is the nation's leading independent source of thoughtful, in-depth reporting on the Western United States. Established in 1970, HCN produces an award-winning monthly magazine and a popular website, along with email newsletters, special reports, books and events. From Alaska and the Northern Rockies to the Desert Southwest, from the Great Plains to the West Coast, HCN is a beloved and essential resource for those who care about this region.

High Country News is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to inform and inspire people to act on behalf of the West's diverse natural and human communities. Its journalism is supported largely by its devoted readership through subscriptions and contributions, with additional revenue from grants and advertising. It has received countless honors and accolades, including three coveted George Polk Awards.

The most recent of those awards went to the leader of our Indigenous Affairs Desk, which was founded in 2017. The desk was among the first in the nation to be led, and largely staffed, by Indigenous journalists and housed in a non-tribal publication. It quickly gained recognition for its smart, incisive reporting on issues such as Indigenous land rights, the legacy of genocide, and the racism faced by Indigenous people.

Notable projects of the Indigenous Affairs Desk include a feature story about a forgotten trove of Indigenous art, a collaboration with the New York Times about the governor of Oklahoma, who claimed tribal ancestry while fighting tribes over a gaming compact, and a work of “speculative journalism” that imagined a future in which the last climate criminals are brought to justice. A two-year investigation into how the expropriation of Indigenous land became the foundation of the land-grant university system won not only a 2020 George Polk Award, but also a national prize from Investigative Reporters and Editors.
