Graham Lee Brewer, NBC News, Native American Journalists Association

On this episode of The Journalism Salute, Mark Simon and Emmy Liederman were joined by Graham Lee Brewer, a newly-hired enterprise reporter for NBC News Digital, a former reporter and editor for High Country News, and the secretary for the Native American Journalists Association (Graham is a Cherokee Nation citizen).


Graham talked about his new job and the reporting work he had done on Native American issues for publications including the New York Times and Audobon Magazine. He discussed the ways in which the NAJA supports Native American journalists and provides assistance to non-Native journalists.


Graham explained how important Deb Haaland’s appointment as Secretary of the Interior and Joe Biden’s promises to protect more public lands are and how Native American stories of struggle can often be reframed as stories of perseverance. He also provided career advice related to writing story pitches.
