Lot 8:

“Original People: Original Television”, by Jennifer David, is a fascinating behind -the-scenes account of a little known revolution in Canadian broadcasting - a journey that led from Nanook of the North in 1922 to the launch of the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network in 1999. A must-read for anyone interested in media, culture, contemporary Aboriginal life, grass-roots and national politics—or those simply seeking confirmation of the incredible power of a dream.

“This is a vital story, now told with brio by Jennifer David. No dry history, her book is more like a detective novel. It’s a gripping tale about a little known part of Canada’s broadcasting mosaic. It’s packed with unforeseeable zigzags, and especially with colourful, outside characters. Canadians—and not just Aboriginal ones—should read this. First, because it’s an important story. Second, because it’s truly entertaining.” ~Keith Spicer, former Chairman, Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission
