Founded in late 1980s in Akwesasne, the original People’s Voice Newspaper began out of a desire to relay information and provide alternative views from news that exclusively or partially promoted the agendas of band councils, tribal councils or any other settler colonial institutions. For a number of years, the People’s Voice laid dormant… till now.
In the present day, there is still a necessity for free and independent media in our communities. As of 2023, we revitalized the People’s Voice to promote transparency and bring awareness to present day social, political and environmental issues across Rotinonshonni Territory. We are dedicated to providing reliable, truthful and fact-based information to allow individuals to come to their own understanding and empower critical decision making.
