FORT YUMA INDIAN RESERVATION, Calif. – Founders of Kwatsan Media Inc. and the Ah-Mut Pipa Foundation are partnering to bring the Quechan Tribal community a first ever low-frequency FM radio station. The Federal Communication Commission awarded the non-profit group with a construction permit for the future site. President
President of the AMPF Foundation, Preston J. Arrow-weed is lending a space on his 10 acres of his land. The area has been kept in his family for more than one-hundred years. It will now play host to the future KUAV 105.1 FM.
“I think it was what I was meant to do…I thought of helping people for the people and that’s what this land is for,” said Arrow-weed. KUAV will be a platform for tribal members to host shows and conversations related to topics important to the Quechan people within a six mile radius.
