FNX Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide Native American and World Indigenous peoples content that entertains, inspires, and informs.
To build a stronger society through greater engagement, awareness and understanding of Indigenous peoples.
FNX | First Nations Experience is the first and only nationally distributed TV channel exclusively devoted to Native American and World Indigenous content. FNX originates from the studios of KVCR-PBS in San Bernardino, CA.
Created as a shared vision between Founding Partners, the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and KVCR-PBS, FNX launched on September 25, 2011. FNX broadcasts in the second largest media market in the U.S, to an estimated audience of over 18 million viewers, over KVCR Channel 24.2.
Through Native-produced and/or themed documentaries, dramatic series, nature, cooking, gardening, children’s and arts programming, FNX strives to accurately illustrate the lives and cultures of Native American and Indigenous people around the world. FNX is a voice, and broadcast outlet for Native American and World Indigenous communities.
