A brick building off State Highway 59 that used to serve as the Callaway School is now home to the White Earth Nation's sole independent radio station.

Niijii Radio, on KKWE 89.9FM, ran its first show on Nov. 11, 2011, at 11:11 a.m. The time was intentional, a good luck charm. For the first three days, the station ran on a 24-hour loop of songs and station IDs, just to test out the new airwaves. Then people started going on the air.
