NM pueblo cartoonist in Pine Ridge

Pine Ridge is the second-largest reservation in the United States and the most poverty-stricken. Its death rate exceeds that of the rest of the country by 300 percent. The Rapid City Journal apologized for a headline it ran with a story about the trouble, which the paper said “signified that there was a justification for the harassment of Native American students at the … hockey game.” In February, one man was charged with disorderly conduct for his role in the attack. Ricardo Caté, a writer from Santo Domingo Pueblo whose Without Reservations cartoon series runs daily in The New Mexican, is among the group heading to Pine Ridge on Saturday. “I just happened to run across the story on Facebook. I was appalled and thought, ‘I have to draw something about this’ … to try to draw attention to this matter,” Caté said. [Santa Fe New Mexican]

Journalists for Diversity has opened up registration for the coalition’s first regional media summit May 2.
Empower Your Lakota Story” will bring journalists from around the country for a conference centered on media literacy, multimedia training, entrepreneurial journalism and a special town hall. The event at American Horse School in Allen, South Dakota, is free and will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Kevin Abourezk, an enrolled member of the Rosebud Sioux and a higher education reporter with the Lincoln Journal Star, is the event’s keynote speaker.
Without Reservations makes readers wince, laugh and cringe sometimes over just one cartoon.
