'The National Indigenous Times first hit the streets on February 27, 2002. It was borne of a dream by Owen Carriage, the original founder of the Koori Mail, and a group of other Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. The paper is staffed and owned by black and white Australians. It does not, and has never, received Government grants or funding to survive. When we first launched the paper, we made two promises to our readers: That we would do our best to help build a bridge between black and white Australia and that we wouldn't shy away from reporting the tough issues.'

Note: The last issue of the National Indigenous Times published before its parent company Destiny Publications went into voluntary administration. The National Indigenous Times hopes to relaunch in March 2016. (ABC News 21 January 2016)
