KYKOTSMOVI, Ariz. - After several years without operations of the Hopi Tutuveni, the Hopi Tribe is pleased to announce the hiring of a managing editor. After nearly a year of recruitment, a candidate has accepted the position.
In 2010 the Hopi Tribal Council appropriated funding to re-establish the newspaper.
"My executive staff has worked diligently with the department of Human Resources and our Public Relations firm (HMA) to advertise and recruit for a new editor. Although this was a long process, we are excited to have an experienced editor and look forward to working closely with the new staff. This has been the wishes of the Hopi and Tewa people and I am thankful to the Tribal Council that they listened to the people and funded the Hopi Tutuveni," said Chairman Shingoitewa.
Chairman's Chief of Staff, Curtis Honanie remarked, "This is another step forward in serving the Hopi and Tewa people. We are very happy that our team was able to successfully accomplish another project under the leadership of Chairman Shingoitewa. The foundation of this success was put in place over a year ago with a coordinated recruiting effort by our team."
A formal public re-opening celebration is being planned by the Office of the Chairman for the latter part of February.
