Peninsula College international student earns journalism award

Saki Kambi, managing editor Peninsula College’s student run newspaper, The Buccaneer, received an Honorable Mention award in the 2020 PNAJE Contest News category with 43 submissions including four-year college newspapers.

Kambi’s international news story about the Olympic Peninsula Makah Tribe’s whaling treaty rights, “Makah Tribe Treaty Rights and Whaling, Decision Imminent,” can be read in

The Makah Tribe is one of the six coastal tribes that Peninsula College joined with in building the House of Learning Longhouse in 2007, which was the first longhouse built on a community college campus in the nation.

The story appears in the first online only edition of The Buccaneer, Vol. 62 No. 6, March 7, 2020.

Kambi, a Peninsula College honors student, is leading The Buccaneer from her bedroom in Japan. The international student is also a PC student leader as an Associate Student Council member in her second year.

She will attend Temple University in Japan this fall, majoring in international journalism.
