Natives need a channel too…
One day, as my husband and I were enjoying watching television in our bedroom, I was looking for native programming, any. I wanted something that I could later share with our Granddaughter. Unable to find anything that we hadn’t already seen a lot of times I turned to my husband and said ‘Indians need a channel too.”
That was when the idea of Native Daily Network was born. As a proud member of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe of the Dakotas I have spent my life immersed in our culture and it’s always been a source of pride and inspiration for me to enjoy the talents of our peoples or oyate. I want to be able to keep a record of our ways and our culture for future generations and I want to share this with everyone because as we say in our culture, mitakuye oyasin – we are all related. – Benita Moore, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe
Mission and Goals
Native Daily Network is a multi-format media resource for Native Americans of all ages and backgrounds. We have a few simple objectives;
Our primary goal is to be a learning tool for all natives to share their culture so that new generations will grow up understanding the various ways native culture is practiced. Our mission is to showcase the native culture and in particular native talent, giving a platform to people who want to showcase what they can do in traditional, contemporary or totally original ways. You will be able to find us in many of the usual places by following the social media links on the top and bottom of every page (YouTube, Facebook etc.)
A streaming channel for ROKU players is coming soon.
