Adding more native stories to TV and movies

New indigenous stories are hitting tv screens - like the latest season of Fox's Reservation Dogs and Dark Winds on AMC.

That sort of native storytelling is rare on TV and in the movies. The 2021 Hollywood Diversity Report says less than one percent of top film roles were native in 2020.

But some organizations are investing in indigenous representation in the media. Plus, we visit a canyon in central Utah and take a look at what life might have been like a thousand years ago.

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
