The Nation has continued its winning streak by picking up two more awards from the Native American Journalists Association June 9 in Denver, Colorado.
Steve Bonspiel won first place in the Best Editorial category for “The Spirit of the Mohawks,” which looked at the Mohawk fight with both levels of government for more land for future generations.
He also picked up second place for “The Classroom in Crisis” in the Best Feature Story category. That article examined the school system in Eeyou Istchee and the lack of preparation for students in Mistissini.
The Nation has picked up eight awards overall this year, to go along with two national nominations for the prestigious Canadian Association of Journalists awards.
