|Once again for
2015, the Native
Rhythms Festival Organizing Committee has
Maker Media (formerly known as Native
American Public Telecommunications, or NAPT)
as the non-profit organization to receive our direct and
indirect financial support.
Vision Maker Media
is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that
shares Native stories with the world through support of the
creation, promotion, and distribution of Native media. Founded
in 1977 as NAPT, through various media - public television, public
radio, and the Internet - Vision Maker Media brings awareness of Indian and
Alaska Native issues. Vision Maker Media receives major funding from the
Corporation for Public Broadcasting and from donations.
Vision Maker Media provides 24/7
downloadable podcasts with Native filmmakers, musicians, and
Tribal leaders. Vision Maker Media is the premier source for quality
educational and home videos. All aspects of the Vision Maker
encourage the involvement of young people to learn more about
careers in the media - to the next generation of storytellers.
Vision Maker Media is located at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Vision Maker Media offers student employment, internships, and fellowships.
Reaching the general public and the global market is the
ultimate goal for the dissemination of Native-produced media.
