Northwest Indian News

Northwest Indian Indian News (NWIN) is currently being broadcast into more than 50 million households throughout the United States and Canada.  Episodes can be viewed online and include topics of interest to Native Americans, such as culture, environmental protection, economic development, whaling, and water rights.

The January 2009 episode was hosted at the Squaxin Island Tribe‘s Home of Sacred Belongings Museum Library and Research Center (MLRC).  Please note the large wall murals in the Hall of the Seven Inlets which I designed along with tribal artist Jeremiah George and the Tribe’s Heritage and Culture Committee.

According to the NWIN website, “The very first NWIN program, produced in March of 2003, is still being used as curriculum in public schools and is being broadcast on various television networks, in rotation, along with more recent NWIN episodes. Plans are underway to share NWIN programs with European and Asian audiences in the near future.”
