News from Native California is a quarterly magazine devoted to the vibrant cultures, arts, languages, histories, social justice movements, and stories of California’s diverse Indian peoples. We strive to preserve the cherished knowledge of an older generation, provide opportunities for a younger generation making a place for Indian ways in the modern world, and illuminate the beauty of Native cultures to all of California.

This archive is an attempt to gather as much valuable information as possible from the ever-scrolling timelines of facebook (and elsewhere) that has been pouring out from North Dakota's Standing Rock Water Protector camps. There is great wisdom being shared by people taking a stand for a sustainable future for the generations to come.
Although this movement is about stopping the Dakota Access Pipeline and access to clean water for millions of people, to quote the following article, "This moment is, first and foremost, about Native liberation, self determination and Native survival." Subjects are organized so that links from facebook, and elsewhere, can be easily found. We hope you find it useful. May I recommend the interviews page as a place to start? Listen to the words of the people and see for yourself.
LRI is a media movement grounded in our pre-contact ways of life. We are independent media with direction. We are an adaptation of our story-tellers. We are content creators of many origins with a vision of returning Indigenous peoples of all “races” to a state of respect for generations unborn. We are a confluence of the waters of many peoples flowing quiet and mighty. We are taking our place, telling the world.
