Siksika Media

Siksika Media is a department of the Siksika Nation Tribal Administration that started over 25 years ago with just a monthly newsletter available to Siksika Nation members. Around that same time a small very low power (10 watts) radio station was also introduced to the Nation. Both forms of media have grown over the years and proudly showcase and promote the Siksika (Blackfoot) language and Siksika culture.

Aitsiniki is the Blackfoot word to describe someone telling a story.


Aitsiniki began as a newsletter for the Siksika Nation Tribal Administration and has evolved into a monthly magazine. Published by Siksika Media, a department of the Siksika Nation Tribal Administration, Aitsiniki Magazine serves as a platform to share news, stories, and events from Siksika Nation and highlights programs and services available to Nation members.

Aitsiniki Magazine is available in both print and online at Aitsiniki.com.  The publication highlights local community events, people, places, programs and services from the community, the Tribal Administration, Chief & Council, related bodies, and private businesses in and around Siksika Nation.

The publication distributes 500 copies through local organizations and businesses on the reserve and through our Calgary offices monthly.
