'Night For Natives' event helps journalists tell community's stories

Posted: Updated:

DULUTH-- Native American journalists got a helping hand from the Duluth community Saturday night.

The "Night for the Natives" event at the Red Herring benefits the Native American Journalist Association, which is a non-profit organization representing more than 500 journalists. 

Several performers sang and played music. 

Michael Charette is a Native American flute player with the Red Lake Band of Lake Superior Chippewa. He says events like these make a big difference when it comes to sharing his community's stories.

"There's a lot of voices out there that need to be heard, and there's a lot of truths out there that are hard to deal with when it comes to Indigenous people and issues," Charette said.  

Performances are scheduled at the Red Herring until 12:30 a.m. Sunday.
