    Walking Into The Unknown This Emmy-nominated documentary traces the intimate journey of an American Indian physician and national health columnist as he navigates the health care system and gains a deeper understanding of himself and his health risks. Dr. Arne Vainio works on the Fond du Lac (Ojibwe) Reservation in northern Minnesota, where his Native patients face grim health statistics. His impending 50th birthday - coupled with his frustration with middle-aged Native men who avoid health screenings - prompts a revelation: he needs to heed his own advice. At high risk for diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer, Vainio chooses to confront the health issues that jeopardize his future by undergoing medical screenings, making diet changes and adopting a lifestyle necessary to prevent a fatal outcome. This poignant story reveals Dr. Vainio's vulnerability as he reverses roles and finds himself a patient. The program also includes several powerful testimonials from community members who have experienced the premature loss of Native men in their families, along with explanations of several diagnostic tests told from the patient's point of view. duration 56:44   STEREO TVG

    Waterbuster Filmmaker J. Carlos Peinado revisits his ancestral homeland in North Dakota to investigate the impact of the massive Garrison Dam project. Constructed in the 1950s by the Army Corps of Engineers, the dam destroyed a self-sufficient American Indian community, submerging 156, 000 acres of fertile farmland and ranchland, and ultimately displaced Peinado's family and others at the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation.
    Peinado traces the footsteps of his maternal grandmother back to the reservation, where he learns more about the building of the Garrison Dam and the effects of the federal government's relocation policies upon sovereign Indian nations. Through interviews with elders, he begins to understand the proud and resilient nature of the Mandan-Hidatsa-Arikara Nation, their contributions to American culture and history, and their deep attachment to the harsh and storied landscape of the Northwestern prairie an attachment for which they paid a heavy price.

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
