NorthWest Indian News


Empowerment in the mainstream media

Issues and events important to Indian people are now being seen and heard on NorthWest Indian News (NWIN). The NWIN television news stories are currently being broadcast into more than 50 million households throughout the

United States and Canada.

Relevance to a worldwide audience

NWIN programs are designed to be relevant to viewers of all age ranges and backgrounds for many years after they are first released. As a result, the very first NWIN program, produced in March of 2003, is still being used as curriculum in public schools and is being broadcast on various television networks, in rotation, along with more recent NWIN episodes. Plans are underway to share NWIN programs with European and Asian audiences in the near future.
