2019 is a banner year for APTN. The network is marking 20 years on the air and in doing so, it’s proving the naysayers who said it couldn’t be done, wrong says long time CEO Jean La Rose.
For those who say “Indigenous people can’t manage their own affairs, no matter what you throw at them it’s either wasted or misspent, I think not only is APTN but many other organizations now are proving those conceptions to be totally false” says La Rose.
According to La Rose, APTN has “clearly demonstrated that it could be done. That we do have a voice and not only do we have a voice but we can use it in ways that others don’t dare to use it.”
“Indigenous people are no second cousins to anybody” says La Rose who adds “we can do anything we set our hearts and minds too and APTN is a prime example of that and so are the many institutions across the country.”
