Aliyah Chavez is a multimedia journalist passionate about the intersection of Indigenous communities and news. Much of her inspiration stems from growing up on the Kewa Pueblo tribal reservation in New Mexico– a place where Native people are largely underrepresented in all forms of media. She graduated from Stanford with a B.A. in Communication and the Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity in 2018. Previously, Aliyah has completed internships with the U.S. Department of Interior, NBC’s TODAY show, and the West Valley View in Phoenix. She is also a member of the Native American Journalists Association. In her free time, she enjoys all things fitness, playing with her young siblings and cheering for the Stanford Cardinal as a member of the cheerleading team.
