Mark Dreadfulwater has worked for the Cherokee Phoenix, the country’s oldest Native American newspaper, for seven years. He serves the newspaper as the Multimedia Editor. He is responsible for ensuring quality digital production in the form of written and video stories as well as photography to be uploaded to www.cherokeephoenix.org. He also is a talented graphic designer and is responsible for the layout of the monthly publication. An added plus, he is also a skilled videographer, photographer and reporter. His versatility is a great benefit to the Cherokee Phoenix because the paper’s staff is small, and he is often called upon to fill in as a reporter or take photos at important events. Mark has served the Native American Journalist Association as a mentor since 2008. He enjoys sharing his multi-media knowledge with students and others and is always willing to help prepare the next generation of Native American journalists.

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.
