Nuxalk Radio now accepting proposals for radio shows

  • May. 22, 2014 8:00 p.m.

Ever dream of your own radio show? That reality could be yours, as Nuxalk Radio is now accepting proposals for radio show series.

Officially launching on summer solstice, June 21, Nuxalk Radio 91.1 FM (Bella Coola, www.nuxalkradio.com) is a non-commercial, educational, community radio station, operated by community volunteers, administered by Nuxalk Acwsalcmalslayc Academy of Learning Society (NAALS) and managed by the Nuxalk Radio Committee.

The mission of Nuxalk Radio is to promote Nuxalk language use, increase the fluency of semi-fluent Nuxalk language speakers, inspire new Nuxalk language learners, raise the prestige of the Nuxalk language, and reaffirm the fact that the Nuxalk language is relevant today and not simply of the past.

That said, all shows do not have to be broadcast in Nuxalk. But, it is important that shows make a positive contribution to the community and utilize this new communications tool in the best way possible.

The following topics are being suggested: Nuxalk language-learning, Indigenous Rights/ Nuxalk Nationhood/Decolonization, Traditional economy/Land stewardship/Living from the land, Environmental awareness/Green living/Ecological stewardship, Traditional Foods/Local foods/Food Security, Physical, mental, spiritual and emotional wellness, Traditional medicine/Self-healing/Naturopathy, Comedy, Potlatch news, Nuxalk practices: Rites of passage, ceremony, ancestral customs etc., Nuxalk ancestry, Indigenous music, local original music, Nuxalk contemporary music, Norwegian local history and language, Nuxalk academics: local archaeology, Nuxalk history, ancestral science, etc., Bella Coola news, global/local indigenous news, Sports/recreation/exercise/ physical activity, Audio book club (with focus on above topics).

If you are interested in submitting a proposal, go to www.nuxalkradio.com and check out the guidelines and sample proposals. Radio training is proposed for the first week of June, but proposals are being accepted on an on-going basis. Send your pitch to program@nuxalkradio.com.
