Elders Say Program

The Elders Say Program is a history and culture program that was created in 2017 in order to increase Cree language programming. The Elders Say program consists of current issues mixed with historic materials and stories from our elders. Working with our elders to retrieve legends that were handed down will ensure that these legends and stories are passed on to the new generation. The program runs once a week for an hour and is designed in collaboration with community elders and the Wemindji radio team. Subjects and themes vary depending on the knowledge of the elder involved in the program.

Awash Children's Program

We have also reached out to the community and have regularly invited children from the daycare to do live shows on the radio. Initially we have worked with them to playlists, but so far, they seem to enjoy singing live on the radio. This new collaboration allows them to have fun, while also familiarizing themselves with the radio and telecommunications environment. This program is much appreciated not only by the children but also by our community members. Together with the Elders Say Program, Wemindji Radio has build intergenerational programming, while also strengthening community participation in increasing Cree language programing.
