Two student reporting teams from Carleton Journalism’s Reporting in Indigenous Communities course will have their work published in The Globe and Mail as part of the newspaper’s Indigenous Enterprises series.

The first article was published yesterday, and highlights an initiative being undertaken by the Pikwàkanagàn First Nation to buy back off-reserve land as an economic development vehicle. The second article, which centres on the Akwesasne Nation, will be published June 13th.

Taught by Professor Duncan McCue, the fourth year course launched in the Winter 2024 term and uses a flipped classroom model. Students travel to local Indigenous communities before coming back to class with a story that ties to a central theme. The Winter 2024 cohort focused on stories of Indigenous economy. McCue joined Carleton’s School of Journalism and Communication in early 2023 after teaching at Toronto Metropolitan University and the UBC Graduate School of Journalism.

More information about the Reporting in Indigenous Communities course, as well as all the stories developed by its students, can be found on the course website.
