June 29, 2015 Host Corinne Frugoni Interviews Lindsie Bear, Editor Of “News From Native California.”

imagesWhat is less than common knowledge is that California is home to 178 Native American tribes. Most Californians do not even realize that they probably see a Native American on a daily basis.

Lindsie Bear is the Editor of News from Native California magazine, as well as Acquisitions Editor for California Indian books at Heyday, and Director of the Berkeley Roundhouse. Ms. Bear is part Oklahoma Cherokee, raised near the Bishop Paiute reservation in California. In that role she not only witnesses but participates in numerous innovative Native American applications of new media technologies to challenge dominant narratives and promote indigenous cultural revitalization. She received her B.A. in Philosophy and the History of Mathematics from St. John’s College in Santa Fe. She served seven years as Senior Editor and Marketing Manager at the University of California Press before coming to Heyday Books.

Written and produced by California Indians and those close to the community, News provides an intimate portrait of traditional and contemporary tribal culture.The journal initially started out as a calendar of events, then grew to become a prominent virtual gathering place and forum for promoting tribal rights for California natives and their friends. Now News has become a physical gathering place as well with the advent of the Berkeley Roundhouse, a series of readings and other social events taking place at Heyday’s Berkeley headquarters or nearby venues that focuses on Native culture and concerns.
