My passion is pursuing what I love and giving American Indians a voice nationally through professional Sports Media.

NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN SPORTS MEDIA WEBSITE

FOR MORE THAN 10 YEARS: Mr. Vasquez has coached and mentored San Pasqual inter-tribal sports teams in reservation-based athletic programs. He is currently partnered with NFL Flag San Diego to recruit young athletes from their Indian reservations and urban housing to compete in organized sports activities, competitive leagues and tournaments.

SOCAL TRIBAL SPORTS NETWORK: Keith has officially covered the Sports Media beat in Indian Country since 2015 and uses social media extensively to promote his journalism articles, sports photography, videography and informative FM radio sports-news broadcasts from the reservation's radio station. His office is located on the San Pasqual Indian Reservation in north County of San Diego.

GIRLS CALIEKeith recently joined the California Indian Education website team as Sports Editor to work alongside its publisher, Ernie Salgado (a Soboba tribal elder), as a tribal member photographer, journalist and sporting events promoter.

NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN SPORTS YOUTH

TRIBAL ATHLETICS YOUTH PROGRAMS: Pictured are are the seven talented Native American Youth Ambassadors recruited by the NFL to participate in the program and bring the great game of football back to their Indian reservations.

MISSION: As a working professional Native American sports photojournalist, Keith Vasquez provides American Indians a tribal voice in amateur, school, collegiate, and professional Sports Media, while also providing Indian youth access to organized sports leagues and athletic programs both on and off their SOCAL Indian reservations.

FUTURE GOAL: To obtain official press credentials to cover and report first-person on professional NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL and MMA sporting events to give an indigenous perspective to the news.
