Lifestyle shows return to APTN

Miywayawin and La Pigure target healthy livers and young keeners respectively.

Two lifestyle shows are returning to the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN) for their second seasons this month. Miywayawin, meaning well-being in Cree, looks at environmental and health issues like clean water, sexual health, diabetes and addiction for a target demographic of 25-to-54-year-olds. Starting Jan. 14, the Saskatchewan-based information show airs Wednesdays at 10 pm on APTN HD.

Broadcast in French, La Piqure features native youths 13 to 18 years old job-shadowing professionals in their ideal line of work, which ranges from farming to law. ‘Over a period of four days, they play a role in the lives of the person who share their passion,’ says Sylvia Kolopenuk, manager of communications at APTN. The show’s target demographic is teenagers.

La Piqure airs Mondays at 4 pm on APTN’s East feed and APTN HD. APTN reaches about 10 million homes across Canada.
