About Us

Tribal elders named the Sault Tribe’s newspaper, now in its 36th year, Win Awenen Nisitotung, which means “One Who Understands.” Its role is to inform and educate tribal members and the public about Sault Tribe and important local, state and national issues that could affect the tribe or its members. But more than that, it brings tribal members news about their families and community.

The newspaper is published once each month and is mailed directly to our elders and each tribal household requesting it. Paid subscriptions for the print edition are available to non-members and the digital edition is available here at no charge.


Submissions are welcome at any time, but will be printed at the discretion of the editor. Tribal members and family members will not be charged for birth announcements, obituaries, or any other family announcements and photos are encouraged. Please email photos of at least 200 dpi or send prints. Miigwech. Letters to the editor should be relevant to the tribal community and are limited to 500 words.
