About us.

IndigiNews is dedicated to covering the news in a way that allows for your stories to be heard, understood and respected. We aim to produce valuable, relevant, and trustworthy content by listening to the communities we serve through our work.

Our reporters are currently covering the Okanagan Valley and Vancouver Island.

IndigiNews was created through a partnership between Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN) and The Discourse. The goal of this partnership is two-fold: first, to provide journalism that serves and is driven by what local communities say they want. Second, to experiment with new business models for digital local news that contribute to the long-term sustainability of independent Indigenous news in Canada.
