KFAI Mission Statement: KFAI is a volunteer-based community radio station that exists to broadcast information, arts and entertainment programming for an audience of diverse racial, social and economic backgrounds. By providing a voice for people ignored or misrepresented by mainstream media, KFAI increases understanding between peoples and communities, while fostering the values of democracy and social justice.

Land Acknowledgement

We wish to acknowledge the sacred land upon which KFAI and the community we serve reside. This is the traditional and present homeland of the Dakota People, unjustly ceded in the treaties of 1837 and 1851. The Dakota have stewarded this land since ancient times. We also recognize the Ojibwe and other indigenous nations who have cared for and inhabited this place. KFAI is committed to giving voice to Native peoples in its programming.
