This fonds consists of about 200,000 photographic negatives (mostly black and white with some colour) produced by the Native Press and its successors between 1971 and 1993 and contact sheets produced from the negatives.
The fonds also includes six C-60 audiocassette recordings containing samples of the Native Communications Society's (NCS) aboriginal language programming and one poster. In 1992-1993 and 1993-1994, NCS successfully applied to Community Programs for financial assistance to develop native language radio programming. Dene language lessons and elder's telling stories and legends over CKNM radio were part of the radio programming. The poster was produced by NCS circa 1981 and features text and images that describe the history, objectives and functions of the communications society.
