Bryan Pollard, photo and graphics coordinator, is also a Cherokee citizen and is originally from Oklahoma but grew up in New Orleans and has a bachelor of arts degree from Louisiana State University. Before returning home to the Cherokee Nation, he was managing editor of Street Roots, a monthly publication advocating for the homeless people of Portland, Ore. From an initial press run of 2,000 in 1998, the publication increased to a press run of 16,000 before he joined the Cherokee Phoenix staff. He has received awards for his work as an advocate for homeless people and Street Roots, as well as being a free-lance photographer for the past 10 years.
Work We <3 | FDP
Instead of spending all our time calling out journalism that doesn't work, we want to find work we like. We'd like to encourage our readers to submit links to content that is moving or challenging and that goes beyond the standard narrative either at the level of form or content. In other words, we want to see journalism that works.
We're particularly interested in work at the nexus of the following categories:
- Please include a comment explaining why the content you're sharing works.
- Comments can be as short or long as desired.
