NAJA Submission for 2023 National Native Media Awards: General Excellence

The Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians submits the following 2022 editions of Wik’uuyàm Heeta’, our Tribal newsletter that has been published every month for nearly 40 years, for consideration in the 2023 National Native Media Awards in the category of General Excellence.

Every month, this publication strives to inform the Cow Creek Tribal citizens of what’s happening within their government, how their Tribal leadership is interacting with the community, critical resources available for the Tribal membership, and how they can become more engaged with their Tribal culture. It is mailed to every Tribal household (less than 2,000), and posted on our website for all Tribal members to read and reference at any time.
