Today Hattie Kauffman, former NBC news correspondent viewed the film we (Apache Skateboards/ Douglas Miles) did for the Ute Tribe about Suicide Prevention in Indian Country. Then she tweeted her support. This got us hyped because she’s a well respected journalist and figure in media. She’s also Native. We’re honored, Kauffman, the first and only American Indian to report for a national network, hails from the Nez Perce Reservation in Lapwai, Idaho. She spent the first three years of her life on the reservation, then Kauffman and her mother relocated to Seattle, Washington. She still considers Nez Perce her home, where she often returned to “visit grandparents and uncles and aunts” .
She began her career reporting and anchoring for KING 5 News in Seattle, earning four Emmy awards. ABC’s Good Morning America whisked Hattie to New York in 1987, where she served as a Special Correspondent and frequent sub anchor.
In 1990, Hattie moved to CBS News as a correspondent and substitute anchor on CBS This Morning. In her two decades with the network, Hattie also reported for 48 Hours, Street Stories, Sunday Morning, CBS Radio, CBS Special Reports, the Early Show, and CBS Evening News.
