Ojibwe Language Radio Station Launches

In spite of licensing difficulties, Anong Beam and her husband Mark Larochelle were able to launch GIMA Radio, an Ojibwe language-only non-profit radio station. They did so in honor of Ms. Beam’s father, Carl Beam (a well-known Native artist) who believed that radio could help the language survive.

The radio station is “the ideal way to help preserve the Ojibwe language, which is an oral tradition, and one of the most difficult languages to learn in the world.”

The station is availvle on the frequency 88.9 FM in M’Chigeeng First Nation, Ontario, Canada.
