The South Coast’s newest radio station isn’t one going after ratings, or to make a lot of money through commercials.
“Radio Indigena” is a brand new FM station in Oxnard licensed to a non-profit group which serves Mixteco, and other indigenous peoples from Mexico who often don’t speak English or Spanish.
Arcenio Lopez is Executive Director of the Mixteco Indigena Community Organizing Project. MICOP serves about 20,000 Mixtecos, and other indigenous people in Ventura County.
20,000 people in Oxnard who speak neither English nor Spanish. No big deal.
