Part of the Storytellers in motion series

Brenda Chambers is a Tlingit from the Yukon, the granddaughter of a hereditary chief. Her father and an aunt were outfitters, and Brenda was shaped by influences of family life. She studied at Grant MacEwan College in Edmonton and work with Northern Native Broadcasting, helping to create TV Northern Canada in 1992. In 1997, the CRTC invited TVNC to apply for a network license; and in 1999, the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network, APTN, was born. When APTN needed more programming relevant to people in the south, she moved to Kelowna. Today, Brenda Chambers channels her entrepreneurial skills in her company, Brenco Media, operating from Kelowna and running a production office in Vancouver.

Her celebratory approach to storytelling includes a series that profiles successful businesses in the Aboriginal community, Venturing Forth, and Tears and Triumphs, a series profiling Aboriginal athletes.
