APTN is bringing the heat this fall season from September to January, with new and returning shows that celebrate the rustic kitchens of global Indigenous chefs - they say you’re going to get hungry watching, so bust out the napkins and get ready to eat!
The network’s growing Indigenous-focused streaming service online, "https://aptnlumi.ca" APTN lumi, will have lots of new binge-worthy content.
“APTN’s fall schedule will help viewers immerse themselves in Indigenous cultures from across the globe to right here in Canada,” said Monika Ille, CEO of APTN. “Whether you want to learn about delicious cooking, watch some hair-raising stories, or tune into a drama series, we have you covered. Our content shares impactful, heartwarming and educational stories from distinct or unique Indigenous perspectives.”
Every Tuesday night, tune in for a celebration of food.

On Country Kitchen, Derek Nannup and Chef Mark tour around the beautiful South-West of Western Australia, seeking out some of the best local produce in the world, and meeting many characters along the way. Join them on their adventures, and see another part of the world while you’re at it.
Easy Eats provides a unique culinary experience hosted by presenter Hera Te Kurapa, as she creates a rustic, but delicious fine-dining menu.
Adam Garnet Jones, Director of TV Content and Special Events, says providing unique and inspiring shows while celebrating the diversity of Indigenous culture across the world is central to the mission of APTN.
“An integral part of Indigenous cultures around the world is sharing our stories and traditions, which goes hand in hand with sharing food,” says Adam Garnet Jones. “Whether it’s harvesting, cooking or eating, food is at the centre of Indigenous lives. It connects us to the lands and waters, our cultures, families and ancestors. It’s a source of pleasure, healing and celebration.”
