CUJ History

The CUJ was started in the late 1970s. It was published sporadically through the mid-1980s, then abandoned for several years before it was restarted on a random basis. The paper began publishing monthly again in August of 1994. Its first full-time editor was hired in 1996.

Circulation:

The Confederated Umatilla Journal, a monthly publication that averages 40-48 tabloid-sized pages, is produced by the CTUIR's CommunicationsOffice. On the first Thursday of each month, 6,000 to 7,000 copies are printed and distributed by various methods. All CTUIR tribal members receive the paper by mail, with another 800 subscribers that include government agencies, legislators and residents of the Pendleton community. In addition, the paper is available free at a variety of locations in Pendleton, including the Chamber of Commerce, city and college library, Umatilla County Court House and several retail outlets.

Subscriptions:

The CUJ is mailed, free of charge, to all CTUIR Tribal member households.
Mail subscriptions are available to anyone who is not enrolled as a member of the CTUIR for $15 a year or $28 for two years.
