Brenda Norrell, "Barriere Lake Algonquins: Taking back the airwaves," Censored News, November 23, 2008.

For many years Barriere Lake has experienced the loss of their land, language and culture. In 1961 they were squeezed onto a 59-acre reserve, in the 1970s they were forced to attend Residential School and since 1993 they have been fighting to have agreements with Quebec and Canada that promise the co-management of their traditional territory honoured.

It's time Barriere Lake took something back…

Barriere Lake Algonquins, with support from the Barriere Lake Solidarity Collective,
are in the process of starting up a 15 watt FM radio station: Mitchikinabiko'inik Nodaktcigen (Radio Barriere Lake) on the Rapid Lake Reserve. The community is working to raise $3,000 needed to get this project off the ground. The primary aim of the project is to serve the Barriere Lake community, with the intention of strengthening language, autonomy, culture and traditions.
