The conference was a hit. This was the first time I attended the National Native Media Conference and I was excited to see what Native people are doing across the country to bring news from Indian Country. The first day of the conference, Vision Maker Media-funded producers and staff had their own session to discuss the challenges to producers of content for public television. Some of the topics discussed were deliverables for public television, using social media to engage audiences, and VMM's commitment to serving the needs of Native Communities.


The theme of the conference was “Going Tra-Digital,” and boy did we ever. Go Tra-digital, I mean. Held in the heart of Silicone Valley, just down the road from Google’s worldwide headquarters, Apple Computers and Stanford University, you could feel millions and millions of bytes being tossed about all around you.
