American Indian contemporary news media. The website

The website was developed by the Agency for Human
Rights and Community Relations (HR/CR), the umbrella agency to
the American Indian, African-American, Asian Pacific-American,
Aging, Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual & Transgender, Latino, People with
Disabilities and the Women’s Commissions. HR/CR is also

Commission Chair, Lawrence Left Hand Bull, states
"I believe this website is absolutely critical in
bringing our people into the digital age and will assist us in
connecting with the younger generation who is much more
digitally savvy and will link to our broader community. The
website is a tool to bridge the divide that has historically
separated us, and will make us one people, one vision, that is
the City and County of Denver.”
