An Open Letter from Winona LaDuke
Boozhoo (Hello),My name is Winona LaDuke. I am the Executive Director
of the White Earth Land Recovery Project the Parent Organization of
Niijii Broadcasting and Niijii Radio. Niijii in Ojibwe means friend.
Over the past decade, the White Earth Land Recovery Project (WELRP)
has approached the idea of creating an independent media platform for
the White Earth Reservation and surrounding region to allow for
community-based programming that provides valuable information and
education to its friends and listeners. By creating avenues for
healthy and civil discourse, Niijii Radio will build community
dialogue, knowledge, and understanding. Coverage will include issues
such as local and national news, community events, community sports,
language, and history. Content will be driven by listeners; from their
own voice and through their own reflection. Please donate to this very
important initiative by becoming a friend and member of Niijii
Radio.Miigwetch (Thank You),
Winona LaDuke, WELRP Executive DirectorSupport Niijii RadioWe have an
amazing opportunity here at White Earth. In 2008, White Earth Land
Recovery Project was notified by the Federal Communications Commission
that Niijii Broadcasting had been awarded two construction licenses
for community based radio stations. In October 2010, Niijii Radio was
awarded a PTFP grant of $466,389. Niijii Radio still needs to match
this grant by raising $155,464 through private and in-kind donations.
Donations will cover the additional equipment to start broadcasting
and operational support.

Niijii Radio is committed to providing Independent News for an
Independent Nation that promotes social, environmental, and economic
justice.Niijii Radio will represent a voice for those who are under-
represented in media production and content, and to illuminate and
analyze local and global issues that impact ecosystems, communities,
and individuals. Niijii Radio aims to create culturally appropriate
news and media content for the
community that will create, excite, and make change happen for a
sustainable and equitable society.Niijii Radio will create a Radio
Station for the People and by the People that EchoesGoals
Niijii Radio and Broadcasting Services hopes to create and maintain a
local outlet for news and media with the production capability for web-
based news and information featuring local events, history, and
language from the White Earth Reservation to enhance and broaden the
connection to community creating vital discourse and
discussions.Everyone behind this project has the primary goal of
promoting healthy vibrant tribal and rural communities. We cannot do
this alone; building healthy communities takes friends and
neighbors.Niijii Radio wants to report on the health and beauty of our
community and how we are making our future- minobimaatiziiwin Niijii
