Women Helping Women – Indian Country Today


Cherrah Giles, Muscogee and Cherokee, is the president of the National Resource Center for Native Women. She is in her second term and joins the ICT newscast to talk about her role with women.

ICT journalist and producer Kalle Benallie, Diné, recently profiled the Mad River Brewing Company. The native-owned brewery has signed an agreement to sell its drinks at MLB San Francisco Giants games. We learn more.

This week marks the first anniversary of ICT. A year ago, the National Congress of American Indians transferred ownership of ICT to IndiJ Public Media. Mark Trahant, Shoshone Bannock, explains everything to us.
