New Mexico in Depth
Location: * Southwest, New Mexico
Beat: Urban Native Americans in Albuquerque
Position: New Mexico has one of the largest per capita populations of Native Americans in the country. Many live in the state’s urban areas, especially Albuquerque, which is in the state’s largest county. But you’d never know this from local news coverage. The reporter on this beat covers the urban Indian population in New Mexico’s largest metropolitan area. New Mexico in Depth envisions working with an RFA corps member in Albuquerque, preferably a young Native American reporter from New Mexico or a Native reporter from out of state.
