Created by Windspeaker Ammsa on December 3, 2013

These funds will assist in Windspeaker's continuing efforts to produce and distribute Indigenous news and information to Indigenous people and communities throughout Canada - particularly those in more isolated regions.

Windspeaker is a part of the Aboriginal Multi-Media Society (AMMSA) - a non-profit society. AMMSA has published and distributed Windspeaker non-stop since 1983.

For the past 20 years Windspeaker regularly received assistance with its postal costs (like many publications produced in Canada) via a postal subsidy through Canadian Heritage. This postal subsidy had helped offset Windspeaker's substantial mailing/distribution costs, but since 2009 that subsidy has been virtually eliminated dropping from $109,000 per year to just $2,480 in 2013!

Funds raised through this campaign will help publish and distribute Windspeaker to communities that have limited access to Indigenous news and information; limited resources for subscriptions and limited internet access.

Thank you.
