    Abstract:
    This article offers a critical review of Brazil’s Indigenous language broadcasting landscape, from traditional analogue transmission to podcasts and online radio. The study introduces Brazil’s Indigenous linguistic diversity and locates the current vitality of Indigenous languages within Brazil’s constitutional provisions and broadcasting legislation that both support and impede programming in languages other than Portuguese. Following an assessment of media penetration and uptake, and a contrastive review of four Brazilian radio stations that have either substantial Indigenous content or a dedicated focus on Indigenous issues, the article concludes with an assessment of the outlook and challenges for programming in this sector.
