Anishinaabe journalist shares personal essay on national programming
“I was a little shocked, I was a little in awe, I was really surprised with myself that I made it to a national program,” Banning says. “Some of the comments I heard [from people] that I really liked were about the sound, how radio just sort of brought this to life and they felt they were in the sugar bush with me.”

Indigenous artists shift online to survive COVID-19, but are hampered by digital divide
COVID-19 cut off Injalak’s 150 painters, screen printers, basket weavers and sculptors from selling to tourists in the Western Arnhem Land community, their Darwin shop, and at national and international art fairs and shows.
