NAJA Lifetime Achievement Honoree Tim Giago and Milestone Honoree Bill Dulaney


The Native American Journalists Association (NAJA) will honor two individuals along with the winners of the Native Media awards on Saturday July 16, 2011.

The first honoree is Tim Giago, Oglala Lakota, who retired earlier this year as Editor/Publisher of the Native Sun News.  Giago launched three leading Native newspapers, produced a weekly television show, published five books and was the recipient of many journalism awards.

In 1983 he co-founded the Native American Press Association (NAPA), which later became known as the Native American Journalists Association.  In 1984 when NAPA/NAJA first met, Giago was elected the first President.

NAJA will honor Mr. Giago with the Lifetime Achievement Award for all he has done not only for Native American Journalism, but also, journalism as a whole.

The second honoree, the recipient of the Milestone Award is Dr. Bill Dulaney.  Dulaney help raise funds for the first initial meeting of the Native American Press Association later known as the Native American Journalists Association.  Without the help of Dr. Dulaney NAJA would not exist.
