“Indigenous Voices highlights HuffPost’s commitment to report with empathy and put people at the heart of every story. For centuries, the stories and experiences of Indigenous Americans have been marginalized or suppressed altogether. I’m proud and excited that Indigenous Voices will provide a space for Indigenous people to write openly and freely about their experiences to HuffPost’s massive global audience,” said Danielle Belton, HuffPost Editor-in-Chief.
"Widespread cultural erasure has prevented many of us from examining Indigenous stories and understanding the complexities that tribal communities experience today. Indigenous Voices will be a space for nuanced conversations about what it means to survive and thrive in this cultural, geographical, and inherently political identity," said Raj Punjabi, Director of HuffPost Voices.
