Radio Promotes Diversity

Radio is a powerful medium for celebrating humanity in all its diversity. For Indigenous Peoples in many countries, radio is the most accessible platform to have their say in the languages that they speak and understand. Radio therefore is a fundamental means of communication for Indigenous Peoples to maintain their languages and to exercise and defend their rights. Moreover, radio is a means of ensuring the right to information in all sectors of society. For Indigenous Peoples, however unless we have access and ownership of the radio station, and means of production of information in our languages, radio is pointless. Furthermore, it is imperative to support Indigenous Peoples to fully realize their rights in establishing their own media in their own languages and help them access all forms of media without discrimination, as stated in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), 2007.
