AIA is produced by Burntswamp Studio. It began broadcasting on March 1st, 1973, to give Indigenous peoples and their respective First Nations a voice about the ongoing struggles against Settler Colonialism and US imperialism by European occupiers often referred to as the United States, Canada, Mexico, and other nations within the Americas.
