Indian and Cowboy is Hiring


We are building a dream here at Indian & Cowboy, and we invite you to be a part of it. We are currently looking for emerging and established writers and creatives, passionate about Indigenous podcasts, music, arts, culture, opinion, and thought, to join our roster of freelance writers.

Our website officially relaunches on March 1st, 2019. We have started our soft launch (sharing new website design, slowly introducing new content, etc.) but aim to hit the ground running at the beginning of March 2019.

What We’re Looking For:

  • you’re Indigenous, or you’re non-Indigenous (this is Indian AND Cowboy, ya?);

  • you understand why we flipped “Cowboy and Indian,” you get the metaphor above, and you’re down with the idea that it’s time to center Indigenous voices and build a community around that effort;

  • you’ve never worked for Ezra Levant;

  • you’re on either side of the Canada/US border, those arbitrary lines don’t stop the goddamn internet so why would we give a shit about where you sleep at night;

  • you’re someone that can spin a tale, tell a yarn, and appreciates the power of Indigenous storytelling;

  • a motivated self-starter that despite their appetite for sleeping in, can meet deadlines;

  • you’ll have opinions and ideas that people can’t necessarily find anywhere else online;

  • you know how to use google docs, seriously;

  • your social media game is decent, but you don’t log more hours online than you do sleeping in a day;

  • you’re a writer, or you want to be a writer, or you pretend to be a writer, or you pretend to want to be a writer, or you want to write, but there is nowhere to write, but given the chance you’d be super eager to write and you’d work hard at being the best writer you can be even though you aren’t a writer, or, even though you want to be a writer, or you’re just pretending to be a writer, or, finally, you’re just pretending to want to be a writer.

  • you’re “emerging” or “established” but either way you see what we’re trying to do and you’d be excited to join us.

Are you an Indigenous or non-Indigenous creative eager to share your voice with the world? Are you an emerging voice that wants to bring your work to new audiences? Do you have an idea that you want to share with the world?

We’d like to hear from you before February 1st, 2019.
