Here's where I was last week (which explains the light posting schedule):
Global Gaming Expo--November 13-16, 2006
Indian gaming makes up a big fraction of the gaming industry--maybe a third--so it's relevant to this blog.
I attended with my pal Victor Rocha (Pechanga), the owner and operator of PECHANGA.net. He moderated a panel called "Media Matters" that featured Mark Trahant (Shoshone-Bannock, Seattle Post-Intelligencer editor) and Frances Snyder (Chumash, tribal spokeswoman). Mark's the journalist who asked Bush the infamous sovereignty question.
For Frances's take on tribal-media relations, you can read her articles edited by Rob for PECHANGA.net. (They're articles 3-5 under that heading.) Also worth reading on the subject is Mary Ann Weston's Journalists and Indians: The Clash of Cultures.
