Heading up the Indian Country Today editorial team is Mark Trahant (Shoshone-Bannock) as Indian Country Today Editor and Vincent Schilling (Akwesasne Mohawk) as Associate Editor. The digital publication will continue on 'publishing lightly' until this spring when there will be a build up of its operation, a shift to a new web platform, and an increased staff."
