This article describes the varied paths that Native American youngsters take in becoming journalists, including two targeted initiatives. According to the author, Native American students can get their journalism lessons and experiences from other sources such as the initiatives described in this article. These initiatives include a summer training institute and the online network (reznet) that provide much-needed opportunities. With its wide reach, reznet is allowing Native college students to become tribal youth's missing role models.
