APTN is terrific

I know that Deb already posted a link to the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network site but is definitely worth having a closer look at, as it really demonstrates just how sophisticated a media infrastructure exists in First Nations communities across Canada. I was absolutely shocked at the list of television programs I found here. I really had no idea that this many shows had been or are being produced directly by and for First Nations communities. The variety is also something of a shock. There are news programs, dramas, documentaries and quite a few good kids’ series. There are also full episodes of certain shows available, which is great. Even some of the big networks don’t offer this. I also found that their mission statement is quite concise and accurately reflects what they are doing on the site.
