The Native American Times was a small, but statewide, newspaper from Tahlequah, Oklahoma which began printing in December 2009. The paper ran original articles, and articles from other native news outlets, as well as providing a place in print and online for native businesses to advertise. A typical paper was eight to ten pages long and was formatted more like a newsletter than a traditional paper. The paper, while originally free, switched to a paid-subscription model in January 2014 as part of an effort to offset production and distribution costs in order to expand circulation to more of the state. The cost of the print edition was $.50 per paper. The paper, citing a lack of advertising revenue was discontinued in print form shortly thereafter in April 2014, but their website, nativetimes.com, still continues to run new articles, and offers many of their articles and features, as well as PDF versions of their previous print copies for free. The Native American Times was founded, and fully operated by Lisa Snell, a member of the Cherokee Nation, who now serves as the online editor for the paper. A typical news article posted on their website can receive anywhere between one thousand and eight thousand hits.
