FIRST PERSON PRODUCTIONS

We constantly are keeping up to date with the current trends and practices with media work and have been doing so since the beginning of MIGIZI, 1977! We voice the underrepresented and give them a trustworthy platform to do so. We are pioneers in the digital realm and use it to better our communities!

First Person Productions (FPP) carries the history of MIGIZI forward with the same passion seen from our founders. Today, FPP equips young Native Americans with 21st century media skills. We've definitely come a long ways from doing radio work! FPP differentiates itself from other media programs because of the social enterprise aspect of the program which allows youth to develop not only expertise in videography and photography, but also management, digital marketing, and interpersonal skills.
