Aliyah Chavez

Aliyah Chavez is an award-winning journalist. She is the anchor and managing editor of the ICT Newscast. 

In 2021, Chavez was selected to represent ICT at a White House press briefing. She asked a question remotely, marking an uncommon opportunity for reporters outside of the beltway to be included — and unprecedented for a Native reporter to ask a question about Indian Country.

The Women's Media Center selected Chavez as a recipient of its first-ever Exceptional Journalism Awards, recognizing outstanding journalism by diverse women storytellers. She was honored at a live-streamed award ceremony in December 2021.

Chavez has been at ICT since 2019. She was previously a reporter and producer for ICT's digital arm before transitioning into broadcasting. She is a two-time graduate of Stanford University and a citizen of Kewa Pueblo.
