Ether Ashe has joined the editorial staff at El Defensor Chieftain as a reporter.

 

Ashe, who came on board Friday, Nov. 10, has worked as a full-time and freelance journalist in North Carolina, Arkansas and Arizona.

“We’re excited to have Ether on board,” said El Defensor Chieftain Editor Gerald Garner Jr. “He brings a strong nose for news and passion to the position — something that will benefit El Defensor Chieftain’s readers.”

Over the course of the past several years, Ashe has traveled extensively in Europe where he engaged in political activism in Ireland and lived for 18 months in Romania, where he taught English.

A lover of the desert Southwest, Ashe said he’s “weary from my geographical escapades and ready to set down roots and cover news for El Defensor Chieftain.”
