Below the Hamelin Line: CKRZ and Aboriginal Cultural Survival

Charles Fairchild (State University of New York at Buffalo)

Abstract: CKRZ, a community radio station serving the Six Nations and New Credit Nations in Southwestern Ontario, is examined here as one of a number of strategies of cultural survival for those it serves. By providing local control over and access to communicative resources and important information, CKRZ is an important community institution. In a detailed examination of the evolution and development of CKRZ, through the collection and analysis of a variety of qualitative and ethnographic data and evidence, I argue that CKRZ has fulfilled its social functions and roles in a very divided and factionalized community by remaining open to the participation of all residents regardless of their chosen affiliations and by not identifying too completely with any specific interests or segments of the community.
