Tribal Natural Resources Reporter

Gabriel Pietrorazio is a correspondent who reports on tribal natural resources for KJZZ. He began covering Haudenosaunee communities throughout New York and Canada while attending Hobart College in the Finger Lakes. 

After earning bachelor’s degrees in media and society and political science in 2020, Pietrorazio graduated the following year with a master’s degree from Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland, College Park.  

Since then, he has prioritized uplifting Indigenous voices by bringing greater visibility and attention to their stories as a multimedia journalist. He frequently contributes to Civil Eats, a national newsroom focused on food systems, and the Syracuse-based Central Current, among other digital nonprofit platforms.

His in-depth Indigenous affairs reporting, primarily centered around agricultural issues, has received numerous local and national recognitions, including awards from the North American Agricultural Journalists, Native American Journalists Association and Syracuse Press Club.
