SAN BERNARDINO - The country's first Native American television network went on the air this week, fulfilling a dream the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and San Bernardino-based KVCR television have been working toward for years.

First Nation Experience TV - which shows documentaries, news and other programs focusing on Native American culture around the clock - turned out to be the dream of so many others that it needed to be almost instantly expanded, said KVCR President and CEO Larry Ciecalone.
