PAW Media and Communications
PAW Media and Communications is a not-for-profit Aboriginal organisation based at Yuendumu in the Northern Territory. Established in 1983 as Warlpiri Media Association it took on the trading name PAW Media and Communications in 2006 to reflect its services to other language groups (Pintupi, Anmatyerr, Warlpiri) in the Tanami region.
PAW Media has a strong history of video production, with perhaps its most well-known production being Bush Mechanics also coproduced with Rebel Films. PAW Media established the first of the Aboriginal community TV stations in Australia in 1985.
PAW Media aims to produce films and video that are guided by local cultural protocols, and that support language and culture maintenance. It has a strong role in advocating for indigenous cultural and intellectual property rights.
In addition to film and video production, PAW Media manages a radio network over 14 communities as well as a semi-professional radio studio at Yuendumu.
