About Who NFIC/ICTV Is

Who We Are
Indian Country Communications, Inc. is an independent, Native-owned, reservation based business that produces IndianCountryTV.com and published News From Indian Country. We are located on the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe Reservation in Northern Wisconsin and have eight stock holders and are one of the few tribally oriented publications that is not owned, or politically controlled by a tribal government.

News From Indian Country and IndianCountryTVare currently our main efforts to assist in providing the public with news and information from Indigenous Nations.

ICC, Inc. is governed by a five member board of directors who over see the CEO that publishes News From Indian Country.

In addition, ICC owns an office building in which is housed several local business entities, including the Trading Post Sugar and Harvest Shack.

For over two decades ICC, Inc. has published News From Indian Country, an Independent National Newspaper, the oldest national Native newspaper in the United States in compact form.

As of 2015 News From Indian Country continues publishes 14 issues a year with both its print and electronic-edition, supplying national news, pow-wow dates and information on all of Indian Country available to the world. NFIC contains national, cultural and regional sections PLUS special interest articles, features, entertainment, and a comprehensive pow-wow directory of events throughout North America.  Our electron edition is found at: digital.newsfromindiancountry.com

We are still developing our IndianCountryTV.com (TV) section with regular offerings such as the Native News Update produced each week, RezStyle and we do occasional LIVE broadcasting of special programs and pow wows.  If you know of anyone that would like to invest in, or help underwrite our digital programming feel free to contact us.

NFIC may not be as slick and fancy as some of the well funded government websites, newspapers or magazines but we pride ourselves in our endeavor and could not do it without our contributors and supporters who believe in the same. Thank You for being with us.
