'From the early days of remote community radio, in the late 1970s, Australia's remote Indigenous communities, personnel from government bodies and the audiovisual media industries, have come together to embrace satellite technology. While this new technology facilitates much-needed communications into the most remote regions of Australia, it also presents an ongoing challenge to Indigenous communities in their efforts to retain and promote their cultural traditions, languages and methods of storytelling.
The Remote Indigenous Media Association (RIMA) Oral History Project is a project within the National Film and Sound Archive's (NFSA) Oral History Program. In collaboration with work of NFSA's Indigenous Collections Branch, the focus of the project is to record the stories and historical voices of the people and pioneers associated with the history of Indigenous media in the remote regions of Australia.'
