Wenona Gardner says
Milwaukeenns has completely ignored the Native American community of Milwaukee. The Winter Pow Wow hosted by Indian Summer this past weekend March 9 and 10, 2019 was never covered by Milwaukeenns. There was no mention of the No More Stolen Sisters: Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women with Speaker Lea Denny Founder of Healing Intergenerstional Roots HIR Healing Center at Marquette University this past March 1, 2019. Native American news stories and many more have been excluded by Milwaukeenns including during the Native American Heritage Month!
Milwaukee was originally a Native American village and means in Ojibwe Good Earth. The Milwaukee Indian Community is the largest Indian Community east of the Mississippi River and in the state of Wisconsin. As an enrolled member of the Stockbridge-Munsee band of Mohican Tribe of Wisconsin and a Native American Journalist member of the Native American Journalist Association I am upset at the lack of coverage by Milwaukeens about Native Americans in our community. There was no mention by the new Editor for plans to include Native Americans in their publication in the future.
Please include the Milwaukee Native American community in future stories at Milwaukeenns.

Wenona, I have reached out to you about having a greater dialogue outside of this platform, and I hope you will take me up on my request.
