“This is an exciting time.”
States Loris Taylor, President and CEO of Native Public Media.
“We had an overwhelming response from our Native radio stations to enroll their staff. This speaks to the incredible need and desire of our terrestrial radio personnel to branch out their service to Native American audiences using new media platforms.”
The digital curriculum is the first of its kind to be written by Natives for Natives and was formally adopted by the Institute of American Indian Arts, an accredited tribal college. Over a two week period, students will learn to use digital platforms to tell stories from tribal communities earning 3 hours of college credit. Rhonda LeValdo, Native American Journalists Association President, is one of the instructors.
