Native American network comes to Albuquerque airwaves

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. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
