Native Pulse goes multimedia

'The Native Pulse' goes multimediaOver a decade ago, Seventh Generation Fund President and CEO Chris Peters started the radio show “Native Pulse” at 90.1 KHSU on the Humboldt State University campus in Arcata.

Now, the radio show has been transferred to a studio in the SGF Media Department and transformed into a multimedia outlet featuring news and current events concerning Seventh Generation Fund's work with projects and affiliates.

It now includes a variety of media forms including publications, short video messages and radio spots. The fund's media department has been actively producing video and radio spots, and leading media trainings in many indigenous communities.

The most recent video, produced under contract, was with the Cheyenne River Youth Project of the Cheyenne River Tribe in Montana. “The SGF Media Department has produced a good amount of positive media on some tough issues in Indian country, challenging issues like domestic violence and diabetes prevention. Next month, we are starting a meth awareness media campaign video production with the Cheyenne River Lakota Tribe,” said Media Director Christopher (Mo) Hollis after traveling to the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation for a week of filming and dialogue.
