Indigenous people have been telling stories forever. The contemporary history of Indigenous use of media begins in the early 1980′s when CAAMA established a radio station and later a TV network; Francis Jupurrurla Kelly and Eric Michaels began the media program at Yuendemu; Gerry Bostok made Lousy Little Sixpence and the ABC commissioned Black Out.
The BRACS roll out in the laste 1980’s finally enabled widespread access to media across remote Indigenous Australia. CAAMA established it’s coporporate productions business, CAAMA Productions, delivering documentaries that sold overseas and screened at film festivals internationally. Today, Indigenous production companies such as Blackfella Films, Deadly TV and many others national and local content providers, deliver programming to established networks including NITV, the new national Indigenous broadcaster.
