More about NorthWest Indian News

News network highlights Indian issues

TV program poised for growthNews by, for and about Indian people.

That’s the idea behind Tulalip-based North West Indian News, a television broadcast network that has been helping American Indians tell their stories from their own perspectives since its launch in 2003.

The network, one of few in the country, has blossomed from a small operation shown in the Seattle and Bellingham areas into an expanded production online and on more than a dozen channels, spanning Hawaii to New Zealand.

The program employs 15 reporters from various tribes, including three local Lummi Nation members.

This year marks the first year the network will employ all native reporters and crew, giving native journalists and technicians an opportunity to break into the field.
Comment:  I guess NWIN is separate from the Tulalip television channel, although I'm not sure how.

I gather NWIN is partnering with NATV and providing content to the Red Nation Television Channel.
