The Aboriginal Multi-Media Society of Alberta (AMMSA) launched 89.3 The Raven on Monday. The station features blues, hip hop, classical rock and pop music alongside language programming in Cree, Dene, Nakoda Sioux, Blackfoot and Michif. It will also broadcast news and indigenous culture programming.
