About Vision Maker Media

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 (Native American Public Telecommunications), 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 is the premier source for quality Native American educational and home videos. All aspects of the Vision Maker Media program 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.
