Native American Netroots

Neeta Lind is the founder of Native American Netroots, an online forum for the discussion of political, social and economic issues affecting the indigenous peoples of the United States, including their lack of political representation, economic deprivation, health care issues, and the on-going struggle for preservation of identity and cultural history. Neeta has led the Native American Caucus at Netroots Nation every year since 2006. Her blogging in 2010 caught the attention of Keith Olbermann, who focused two segments of "Countdown" on the winter ice storm disaster in South Dakota that devastated the Lakota Reservations. Hundreds of thousands of dollars were raised to help these tribes as a result. Neeta, who blogs as navajo at Daily Kos, is also the community organizer of SFKossacks, the readers of Daily Kos in the San Francisco Bay Area, and co-editor of the Daily Kos weekly series "First Nations News & Views."
