Did you know, that Native American populations are among the least connected in the world?
When your community is so remote that you don't have paved roads; when you don't have access to plain old telephone
service in your home; when you don't have access to broadband in your community; and when only 1 in 3 families in
your community have access to telephone services, terrestrial radio becomes a lifeline.
Native Public Media’s core function is ongoing and proactive service Native Communities. We work to facilitate a
world in which all Native Americans have access to information through media. Native Public Media helps build a
strong and healthy information ecology for Native Americans by training community members for radio and new media
platforms— including digital communications that are informative, transformational, entertaining, and educational.
We invite you to look at the work we do in Indian Country on our website and then, this holiday season, we ask that
you support Native Public Media in its mission to promote healthy, engaged, independent Native communities through
media access, ownership and control.
