Aboriginal media that is created, controlled and operated by Aboriginal people can greatly benefit lanaguage retention and cultural preservation and can play an important role in bridging social and economic divides. As I’ve been working through this course, I have continually come across resources and news events published by the Canada’s First Nation Radio Network (CFNR). It is owned and operated by Northern Native Broadcasting and is a member of the Western Association of Aboriginal Broadcasters. While I haven’t listened to the radio station (not yet available where I live), I have accessed many articles on the the website and appreciate that they continue to cover Aboriginal initiatives throughout not only the province but also the country. Many of the articles also contain audio interviews and links to related resources.
