Indigenous Access Media is a member-owned and -operated cooperative formally founded in 2020 who are also members of First Nation Communities. 

I AM adheres to free speech principles and federal communication guidelines, allowing for a genuinely open forum for a broad array of self-expressive forms. 

I AM content will be exclusively available on the I AM website on-demand to anyone with internet access and will not be shared or sold from the I AM website. I AM will provide a public, online commons for Indigenous artists and other creative messaging to stream relevant topics, including video art, explorations of creative processes, issues related to local social problems, practical skill-sharing, community problem-solving and other public conversations. 

By using an internal membership process, I AM acts as a sustainable community media hub while also helping community members share their creative video content produced according to federal communications and copyright law. 


A Radical Media Group

Indigenous Access Media is a public commons for Indigenous People worldwide , by providing a media host where Individuals and groups can share content made by and for Indigenous People.I AM is an independent  online platform. We promote Indigenous built infrastructure where Indigenous philosophy and visibility of Indigenous peoples is central to content. This platform is available without  biased  content censoring, predatory surveillance including, data harvesting and suggested content. I AM is committed to creating a platform that promotes equality amongst content providers. I AM operates in the public-interest without organizational profit motives beyond sustaining the website and its content. I AM relies on arts grants and public donations to keep the site running and increase bandwidth as the site grows and content increases. I AM promotes an Anti capitalist motive and will not sell advertising or use  other forms of monetization such as  requiring general subscription fees or pay for play content . Content contributed will never be sold to a 3rd party for the benefit of the individual or platform providers.Ownership and accountability for videos belong to content producers, not I AM.

Our goal is to preserve the sacredness of communication and recognise it as a gift and responsibility to our ancestors, elders, the disabled infants and Mother Earth. I AM strives to encourage the preservation of first Languages, knowledge and tradition in a new media landscape as well as promote creative expressions and non traditional content.

I AM adheres to Constitutional free speech principles and legal communication guidelines, allowing for a genuinely open forum for a broad array of expressive forms.

I AM is advertising-free with zero interruptions of videos 
I AM encourages its users/producers to promote their own channel.

I AM does not include comments on videos, as we believe they muck up healthy civil discourse. But if viewers feel moved to respond to something one of our users uploads, you’re invited to produce and submit your own video!
