Something New in the Air: The Story of First Peoples Television Broadcasting in Canada

Couverture
McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP, 2005 - 300 pages
"Something New in the Air charts the development of indigenous television from the 1970s to the present. Lorna Roth focuses on the regional, national, and global implications of Television Northern Canada and the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN), the only dedicated aboriginal television service in the world. She shows that First Peoples, by making their programming an integral part of the Canadian broadcasting infrastructure, have succeeded in creating a provocative model for media resistance. Something New in the Air recounts the struggle of First Peoples to attain the legislated recognition of their collective communications and cultural rights that partly explains why they are now acknowledged as having the most advanced aboriginal broadcasting network in the world"--Back cover.
