Who we are at Turtle Island News
We are an independent, aboriginally owned online news website and print edition from the Grand River Territory of the Six Nations in Ontario who are passionate about first nation issues and providing you with reporting based on the facts and analysis from the people that live these issues. Turtle Island News is part of the Turtle Island News Publications and Multi-Media company that is 100% First Nations owned by veteran award winning aboriginal journalist Lynda Powless and her sons.
Lynda has been part of the mainstream reporting scene winning numerous national newspaper awards and has brought that expertise to covering issues that affect her people, the indigenous people of Turtle Island to Aboriginal Business Magazine and the national award winning Turtle Island News, the flagship publication of her now 20 year old publication company. A company she built from the basement of her home at Six Nations of the Grand River to today’s award winning business. She has won national business awards and was named one of the Top 100 Business women in Canada. You can join our story by helping us give voice to aboriginal issues.
It isn’t business as usual anymore. Supreme Court decisions have changed the way both business, industry and government will develop whether its housing developments, oil refineries or pipelines, First Nations now, by law must have a say in projects being built on lands they have an interest in. With those changes Canada needs to hear the aboriginal perspective that is not being told by national media that is losing its way as government continues to muzzle or control information on First Nations issues while giving unprecedented influence to business and industry in development of First Nations lands. With a federal election coming and a country puzzled over a new way of doing business has to include First nations it’s time for the indigenous voice to be heard. It’s time for the facts on indigenous issues, analysis and business. Join us in helping to bring the indigenous voice to the national conversation A conversation that supports a Canada that includes indigenous people voices.
