The Australian Government supports Indigenous broadcasters throughout Australia.
Indigenous broadcasting helps give Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people a strong voice and increases their social and economic participation in society. It strengthens Indigenous cultural expression and conservation.
Radio in remote communities is a way of life. Local radio stations are trusted by communities and are their main source of information for health, education and community services.
Indigenous radio is important for promoting music by Indigenous artists. Local culture is also strengthened by broadcasting in regional Indigenous languages.
