The Last Real Indians is a site by Indigenous communities, for Indigenous communities. In fact, its stories, profiles and updates are written by four Indigenous writers committed to delivering news, opinion and insight on topics important to native communities.
The writers are American, but many of the topics are applicable to Canadian Indigenous struggles and triumphs, and often even in a global context.
The site isn't just news - it's also about notable people and interesting campaigns. There's coverage of Indigenous artists, musicians, activists, community leaders, evolution of Indigenous culture and historically important days and events.
Here are some recent topics covered on the site:
-celebrity and photography Native appropriation
-Alberta tar sands pipeline expansion
-Indigenous connections to and origins of basketball

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
