Nuxalk Radio

91.15FM – Broadcasting out of Q’umk’uts’, BC and online

Nuxalk Radio is a non-commercial community radio station broadcasting on 91.1 FM from the Nuxalk village of Q’umk’uts’ (Bella Coola) and worldwide online. Launched si7mt (summer solstice) June 21, 2014 with the slogan: Lhulhamktulhs ala ts’ktaliwalh alh ti s-kulhulmcilh t’ayc n wa sulutilh ats (Broadcasting the laws of the lands and waters).

Nuxalk Radio aims to be a part of building a grassroots Indigenous radio network with the focus on maintaining our languages, healing and empowering our Nations. It aims 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.

Bella Coola is approximately 430 km northwest of Vancouver, BC at the mouth of the Bella Coola River. The majority of the people in the Bella Coola valley are either Nuxalk or of Norwegian descent. The Nuxalk have lived in the Bella Coola region for thousands of years, while the Norwegians established the settlement of Hagensborg 16km east of Bella Coola in the 1890s.

Tŝilhqot’in Radio

104.5FM – Broadcasting out of Williams Lake, BC and online

Tŝilhqot’in Radio is an Indigenous broadcasting group supporting revitalization and restoration of Tŝilhqot’in language and culture while building on the need to discuss relevant indigenous issues on a shareable platform to thousands across the country. As the Tŝilhqot’in Nation won Aboriginal Title in the Supreme Court of Canada—a first in Canadian history—we broadcast important discussions relevant to First Nations, Inuit and Métis across Canada.

Some of our Governing Principles

  • Promote the language, culture and customs of the Tŝilhqot’in Nation
  • Provide broadcasting that reflects and represents the interests, cultures, languages, music and lifestyles of the Tŝilhqot’in people
  • Provide a platform for regional dialogue among members of the Tŝilhqot’in Nation
  • Offer a platform for governments and other service providers to communicate information that includes education, health and especially emergency response after the worst wildfires in British Columbia’s history.
  • Promote training opportunities for Tŝilhqot’in members to be engaged in broadcasting, production and technical services related to radio and television broadcasting.
  • Our programming and goals intend to not only inform, educate and entertain our community members living on reserve but to do the same for off reserve members as well. We use our programming to bring our communities and community members closer together through news updates about Tŝilhqot’in Nation business, language projects and community events. We are consistently aiming to bring Tŝilhqot’in culture to the forefront of all events in our communities, with many events broadcasted live on the internet for those not able to make it.
