History is being made at FNX! This exciting and innovative development in public television is also the most important media opportunity for Native and Indigenous people ever! FNX is the vehicle we have been waiting for to be able to tell the stories, share perspectives and celebrate the rich and diverse traditions of our Native and World Indigenous cultures.

Through FNX, we are directly impacting the public dialogue and perception of Native and Indigenous people like never before.
