Please Read: We Are Moving

We are moving!!!

Dear readers,

As many of you may know, we have been busy working on migrating Indigenous Peoples Issues Today into our parent site Indigenous Peoples Issues and Resources. We are happy to inform you that this migration is almost complete. We believe that this move will not only benefit you in terms of staying on top of indigenous issues, but will also allow us to provide much more. Indigenous Peoples Issues and Resources is built on a much more stable, scalable platform that allows us to incorporate more information, maps, videos, and other features. Please have a look:

We will continue to bring you news, articles, book reviews, and our weekly Five Key Indigenous Peoples Issues. However, with the new site we will also be able to provide maps that locate each story for better reference, a much more powerful search function, as well as videos, conference announcements, and postings of jobs, funding, and grants.

Sadly, one feature that we cannot transfer is our email alerts. Because we respect your privacy, you must sign up again for email alerts via the new site. They will still be delivered to you every day in the exact same way that you have been used to. Please go to the site now and register to receive email alerts so that you do not miss a thing (registration is on the left hand column).

If you have suggestions for new features or areas of coverage, please feel free to let us know. We are always looking for ways to improve Indigenous Peoples Issues and Resources.

We will no longer be posting to this site beginning July 1, 2009.

Thank you and we hope that you migrate over to the new site with us.

Thank you for understanding and supporting Indigenous Peoples Issues Today. We understand that some viewers may be concerned that ads are sometimes served for companies that negatively depict indigenous peoples and their cultures. We understand this concern. However, there are many legitimate companies that utilize Google Adwords and other programs to attract visitors. Currently, we have no way of deciphering between the two - we leave it up to the viewer to decide whether the companies serving ads are honest or not.
