Congrats to veteran Sun columnist Mark Bonokoski for an Honourary Mention Debwewin Citation for The Red Road, a 2008 15-part series about First Nations issues.
A Jenny Yuen story says the 2010 Debwewin Citations awards will be presented Nov. 9 during the Anishinabek Nation Special Fall Assembly in Garden River First Nation, near Sault Ste. Marie.
The story says the awards were created by the Union of Ontario Indians to recognize achievement and excellence in journalism about First Nations issues.
“Award or no award, it was probably the most rewarding project I’d worked on in years,” Bonokoski says in the story.
The entire series from December 2008 can be read online at torontosun.com
