As we enter our 10th anniversary year, it is an honour and a privilege as IC’s editor and publisher to announce IC Magazine’s new board of directors:
Tracy Barnett is a regular contributor at Huffington Post, founder of the Esperanza Project, and a former assistant professor at the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Journalism.
Secretary and Treasurer
Jay Taber is a contributing editor of Fourth World Journal, an associate scholar of the Center for World Indigenous Studies, and communications director at Public Good Project.
As the founder of IC, I am very proud to have a group of such distinguished professionals step forward to assist with the plans I presented during our highly successful fundraising campaign this past winter.
To recap, those plans include:
Once we secure sufficient revenue through grants and donations, we also intend to set up shop in Winnipeg, where we can house interns involved in copy-editing, fact-checking and special projects–such as media production workshops. But first, IC needs to give its new board time to discuss IC’s strategic plan, which will help guide the publication into the future. Their experience, and that of the advisors now being recruited, will ensure that IC will remain a quality magazine, unique in its value and service to the Indigenous Peoples Movement.

Indigenous Peoples are putting their bodies on the line and it's our responsibility to make sure you know why. That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage. By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
