NORMAN, Okla. -- The Native American Journalists Association was deeply saddened this evening to learn of the loss of USA Today founder Al Neuharth, who was instrumental in the founding of our organization and a strong partner in NAJA's mission of supporting Native Americans journalists.
Mr. Neuharth held a NAJA lifetime membership. In addition, he was a founder of the Freedom Forum, which introduced hundreds of Native American students to journalism through the Crazy Horse Journalism Workshop and American Indian Journalism Institute, or AIJI.
NAJA is grateful to Mr. Neuharth for the contributions he made to Indian Country through journalism and his overall support for our organization. The NAJA board, staff and members send their most sincere condolences to his friends and family.
