Exploring Tribal Representation across American Indian-produced radio in US Reservation and Urban Contexts

Project description

The role of radio on protecting rights of indigenous peoples

Indigenous peoples make up 5 % of the world’s population but comprise 15 % of the world’s poor. In many parts of the world, they are largely marginalised, suffering from a history of discrimination and exclusion. Focussing on the American Indian community, the EU-funded TRR project will explore how community radio practices and structures can facilitate meaningful self-representation. The aim is to understand the role that indigenous radio stations can play as regards communication strategies. Examples of good practice will be shared with tribal communities. The results will be valuable for the EU, where indigenous communities are under-represented in mainstream media.
