The most accessed articles at Censored News for the past year expose unauthorized wiretaps on Mohawks; protesters locked down to protect San Francisco Peaks; US Marines patrolling the Arizona border stalking migrants, and a hate crime against Reno Sparks Indian Johnny Bonta and his family in Fernley, Nevada.

Citing the law that prohibits genocide and discrimination, Kuiu Kwaan Lead Judge Rudy James and Indian country judges issued the judgment in support of Northern Paiute Wesley Dick, Kwassuh.
