Alaska Native and Native American programming on 360 NORTH
Beginning with the fall schedule, 360 NORTH will dedicate a large programming block each week to Alaska Native and Native American programming. This regularly-scheduled lineup will include the best documentaries, public affairs, cultural and event productions from independent producers and public television.
Exciting recent acquisitions include NORTHWEST INDIAN NEWS and NATIVE REPORT. Northwest Indian News is an award-winning series that was started in 2003by the Tulalip Tribes in Washington. Native Report has just begun their third season and is a production of public station WDSE in Duluth. Both programs have recently produced stories in Alaska and their energy and perspective on Native issues will be a welcome and interesting contribution to the 360 NORTH program schedule.
