Listen to KTDB ( 89.7 FM ) Radio
for the Pine Hill, N.M. /
Tł'ochiní Diné area.

 

In 1972, KTDB ( 89.7 FM ) , the First Indian-owned and Indian-controlled radio station in the United States, began broadcasting in the Navajo language from a trailer at Mountain View near El Morro. The call letters, KTDB, stands for Tł'ochiní Diné bi radio ( translated as ”Ramah Navajo People’s Radio” ). Yá'át'ééh !!!

 

When driving to PMR from El Morro, one can make a turn East by the old 1943 BIA one room schoolhouse. On 2/25/1970, the School Board members took on Washington, D.C. to seek funds for a new school. No one stood up for the Tł'ochiní Diné. They had a national impact. The Tł'ochiní Diné's determination led to a major Federal Indian policy passed by the United State Congress known as the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act of 1975 or Public Law 93-638. Yá'át'ééh !!!
