ABSTRACT
In this article, the author describes the cultural clash which he saw as reporters tried to report the story about a school shooting on the Red Lake Indian Reservation in north central Minnesota in March 2005 without their customary access due to tribal sovereignty. The author notes that Red Lakers stand proudly on their sovereignty. They live on land where generations of their ancestors walked, land that was never ceded to the U.S. government. According to the author, American Indians place high value on respect and trust and inherently distrust people when they show up asking questions and demanding answers.
