ICT, the independent, Indigenous-serving news enterprise housed at Arizona State University, is serving up a history-making moment with another history maker — U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris.

On July 7, Harris, the nation’s first female vice president, visited the Gila River Indian Community in Arizona, marking the first visit from a sitting president or vice president for the Indigenous nation. And ICT News was there.  

In collaboration with Arizona PBS, ICT broadcasted its historic interview with the vice president on the “ICT Newscast with Aliyah Chavez” on July 10. The interview delves into various topics, including the Biden administration's commitment to Indian Country, the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIW) epidemic, and the significance of tribal sovereignty.

ICT's exclusive interview with Harris can be watched on ICT's website and social media channels. The episode is available for viewing here.

Formerly known as Indian Country Today, ICT is a daily digital news platform that covers news, entertainment and opinions relevant to Indigenous communities. ICT opened its newsroom at Arizona State University's Downtown Phoenix campus in 2019 and maintains bureaus in Washington, D.C., and Alaska. As a non-profit, member-supported outlet, ICT has been instrumental in expanding coverage of Native American communities through public TV stations. It has provided weekday news through Arizona PBS since 2020.

ICT and Arizona PBS are both enterprise affiliates of ASU Media Enterprise, a collection of broadcast, digital, podcast and project formats that focus on science, technology, innovation, the arts and social change.
