The Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association (CAAMA) came to life in 1982 with the establishment of radio station 8KIN FM. Aboriginal-owned media was seen as being vital to the broad educational and community development aspirations of Aboriginal people in Central Australia. Radio was a way to give voice to Aboriginal hopes and dreams as well as being a tool to maintain and sustain the culture and languages of Central Australia. Originally offering music and programming in Arrernte, Pitjantjatjara, Luritja and Warlpiri, today CAAMA broadcasts in half a dozen more Indigenous languages, reaching communities across Australia.
