Native Nation Building TV
NNI produced the "Native Nation Building" television and radio series to provide critical information to the leaders of Native nations, students in tribal colleges and other educational institutions, and other interested individuals about what’s working and what’s not as Native nations engage in the difficult and daunting challenge of nation building. Native Nation Building, which is available for purchase in audio (CD) or video (DVD) format, is a series of thematic interviews (each 30 minutes long) that presents the growing number of nation-building success stories and examines the roots of that success. Jointly produced by NNI and KUAT MultiMedia at the University of Arizona, the program was distributed to elected officials and staff of Native nations, students at tribal colleges and universities, and interested professionals working in and with Native communities throughout the U.S. and Canada. It also was broadcast in markets with significant numbers of Native viewers. Each episode can stand alone, but taken together, the series provides a comprehensive overview of the ways Native nations are working to make sustainable, self-determined community and economic development a reality.
