Aborigine preceded Americans Before Columbus as the National Indian Youth Council (NIYC)’s official publication. The newsletter was an effective method to share news and recruit new members to the organization. NIYC member Karen Rickard (Tuscarora) designed the seal seen here on the cover of Aborigine, and it is still used as the organization’s official seal.
