At a time when most Americans are calling attention to the poor quality of television and its destructive impact on society as a whole, this history of Indigenous activism informs other historical efforts to transform television into a productive form of entertainment. In opposing the television industry, Indigenous organizations often formed meaningful alliances with other ethnic groups in the United States to secure their goals. Therefore, this project investigates the function of race and colonialism in America through television, but more importantly, how Native peoples expressed their own visions for the future of television programming and utilized existing interethnic alliances to secure cultural sovereignty.See also the series websites Native Report (WDSE-TV, 2007), http://www. nativereport.org/season_l.asp (accessed 24 ... 2006, 2, http://www.awrt.org/ advocacy/Diversity/History_FCC-Diversity_Initiatives.pdf (accessed 30 September 2008).
