NATV only months away

NATV:  There’s Something Happening Here...and It’s MajorNative American Television (NATV) is literally right around the corner; just months away from beaming into the living rooms of Americans from all corners of the map and what this means—what this means—is light years beyond another channel on our dish network.

What this means is that for the first time mainstream America will be introduced to images of Native Americans-Aboriginals-Indians that weren’t fabricated in the TNT penthouse offices or in grainy black-and-white westerns or plastered on motel signs along Route 66. In other words, beyond leather-and-feathers, casinos, Pine Ridge, and Chief Wahoo.

And more. An educational program, based out of metro D.C., which will take emerging media talent from Indian Country (for those of you who don’t know, that’s everywhere) and provide hands on training, and more importantly, opportunities for young Natives to put their skills to the test.
Comment:  I'm pretty sure NATV is only figuratively around the corner, not literally around the corner. ;-)

Writerfella here --
writerfella is waiting for this internet-to-TV channel to arrive and he just may have found the very appropriate medium for his talents and inventory/retinue of properties that never have been produced. We shall see...
