Freedom of the press, though protected in the United States Constitution, is not guaranteed in most Native American tribes; as sovereign nations, tribes determine their own laws and constitutions. Of the 574 federally-recognized tribes, only five have passed laws protecting free press. One of those five is the Muscogee Nation. When the Muscogee Nation suddenly begins censoring their free press, a rogue reporter fights to expose her government’s corruption in a historic battle that will have ramifications for all of Indian country.
