Oneida Nation puts end to print edition of Indian Country Today

Indian Country Today will strictly be an online operation starting this week.

The Oneida Nation of New York announced an end to the weekly print edition of the publication. The magazine had a circulation of about 15,000, the Associated Press reported.

“In the age we live in, technology is really advanced to a point that we’re trying to make sure we’re serving what our audience really needs,” Oneida Nation Representative Ray Halbritter told the AP.

Tim Giago, a member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe, founded The Lakota Times in 1981 and later changed its name to Indian Country Today. The Oneida Nation bought the paper in 1998 and renamed it to "Indian Country Today Media Network" in early 2011.
