ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – New Mexico PBS has announced it is bringing a California-based television network dedicated to Native Americans to the Albuquerque area.
The station said Wednesday that First Nations Experience now is live on KNME-TV, Channel 5.3, in the Albuquerque area and will feature programs focusing on Native American and indigenous people around the world.
The public TV network known as FNX is a partnership of the San Manuel band of Mission Indians and KVCR-PBS in San Bernardino, California.
It was launched by KVCR-TV in September 2011.
FNX can already be seen by 11 million people in several states, including California, Arizona, New Mexico, Alaska, Minnesota and Illinois.
The network is scheduled to air Disney-Pixar’s “Finding Nemo” in Navajo on Christmas.
