Nov. 20, 2003 — In the Nov. 10 story “American Indian journalists fight for press freedoms,” we mistakenly reported that the Navajo Times, in gaining its independence from the Navajo Tribe Oct. 23, was the first American Indian publication ever to do so.

It is unknown which American Indian newspaper in the U.S. was the first to gain independence from its tribe.
