Native Media Resource Center & KGUA


Our History

The Native Media Resource Center (NMRC) was founded in 1997 by Muscogee Tribal member and award winning radio producer Peggy Berryhill. Peggy has been involved with public broadcasting for 38 years. Other founding members are Susan Ruschmeyer, and the late Chris Carty (Aleut). The non-profit organization was formed to create content about Native Americans and to promote racial harmony and cross-cultural understanding. Since its inception, NMRC has been one of the primary content providers of radio programs and documentaries about Native Americans, working in collaboration with such prestigious institutions like the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Koahnic Broadcasting Corporation, Northern California Cultural Communications, Inc. and Native American Public Telecommunications, Inc.
