This couldn't come at a better time! You might remember a lot of people were mad at Netflix when they came to the defense of the new Adam Sandler movie in which several of the Native actors walked off the set. There was a call for folks to join the #WalkoffNetflix campaign and cancel their subscriptions to NetFlix in protest of the film. I even saw some people jokingly talk about how they should create a NativeFlix instead. Well guys you're in luck because they really is a NativeFlix!


Subscribers around the World can now watch Indigenous entertainment that was previously unavailable from national television and cable networks or existing VOD platforms. “For too long, quality Indigenous entertainment has been available only in a fragmented way. We’ve created a new, convenient, and affordable way to watch quality Indigenous entertainment in one place,” said Tim Harjo, CEO of AMG.

The company’s mission centers on achieving a greater understanding about what it means to be Indigenous and to share what Indigenous people have to offer. The company operates its content distribution similar to a cooperative. It shares 60% of the subscription revenues with the content owners.

Harjo adds that “there are more than 100 million Indigenous peoples Worldwide with about 7.8 million living in the U.S. and Canada alone. Close to 85% of Native people in the U.S. live in urban and nonrural areas outside tribal lands. These families have greater access to highspeed Internet and also
use mobile devices in much the same way other populations do.”


NativeFlix provides seamless streaming of Internet video to computers and mobile devices through a broadband connection or wireless provider network via a monthly subscription fee of $5.99. Additionally, customers will also be able to rent new release movies starting at $3.99 each. The company is currently developing apps for OS, Android, and streaming devices like Roku, Apple TV, DVD players, and Smart TVs.

When you sign up for NativeFlix you'll have access to great television shows like Bionic Bannock Boys, On Native Ground and Creative Native; hit movies like Crooked Arrows, Rhymes for Young Ghouls and Dome of Heaven with Wes Studi. And documentaries that you would rarely see on mainstream channels, like Dugout – the story of 19 young people on an island in the Yukon River who must carve a sea-going canoe true to an ancient design that will carry them off the island.

So what do you think? Are there any movies or television shows that you would like to see on NativeFlix?

I purchased Nativeflix and it took money off of my card but I go to activate it and it says website not found!

I watched a movie long ago about a young Indian girl who watched under her bed as her parents were killed by white men. She grew up to revenge her parents deaths and got all of them as an adult. Would anyone know the name of this movie?

I think this is a great ideal. If I can get it on my tablet,etc., I will definitely get this. I have native American heritage in my family, and I will be proud to help with all I can. Thanks. Pixie
