Introducing the Indigenous Media Collaborative:
Carisela Amador (The Eastern Door)
JHR’s Solutions Journalism program is pleased to introduce the members of its new Indigenous Media Collaborative, a group of Indigenous journalists and media organizations that is producing a series of solutions journalism and human rights stories about land claims, Indigenous sovereignty, and #LandBack. This week, we speak to Marisela Amador of The Eastern Door about her interest in pursuing stories about #Landback.
Marisela Amador has worked as a TK at The Eastern Door for almost three years now. She became the lead reporter at the paper within a year of joining the publication, and has recently taken on the role of assistant editor. Amador was born in Nicaragua and immigrated to Quebec with her family as a child.
