Reclaiming Native Truth: A Project to Dispel America's Myths and Misconceptions

Groundbreaking Research Reveals America's Attitudes, Public Perceptions and Dominant Narratives about Native People and Native Issues, and Provides Opportunities for "Reclaiming Native Truth" (Press release)

First Nations Development Institute - June 27, 2018

First Nations Development Institute (First Nations) and Echo Hawk Consulting (EHC) today released groundbreaking research about attitudes toward and perceptions of Native Americans as part of a jointly-managed effort called Reclaiming Native Truth: A Project to Dispel America's Myths and Misconceptions. The project also released two messaging guides based on the research findings and a narrative-change strategy framework that will be used to begin to change the false and misleading narratives about Native peoples. More issue-specific narrative messages written around key issues - mascots, the Indian Child Welfare Act, tribal sovereignty and pop culture depictions of Native Americans - find similar validation.
