Learned a lot from Tim

To the Editor,

Sending a message of gratitude after reading Tim’s in Indianz. Congratulations on your well-earned retirement and I’m sending many good thoughts to you and your relatives.

We met briefly at a NAJA conference a few years ago. My name is Aliyah Chavez and I’m a reporter at Indian Country Today.

Nyy’tra (thank you) for all you’ve done in this field. I am the young Native journalist you frequently cite in your stories — and there is no amount of gratitude I can express to folks like yourself and the other Native female journalists who have paved this path for individuals like me. It must have been quite a challenge and I thank you for the work you’ve done.

After I graduated from journalism school at Stanford, I felt incredibly grateful to have organizations Tim founded like NAJA and Indian Country Today to support me through my path. I often look to trailblazers like Tim for guidance and frequently love reading his work as well as the work from the Native Sun News Today team.

Please let me know if there’s ever anything I can do for you.
