Meet the Digital Indigenous Democracy.
Funded by the Canada Media Fund Expiramental Stream, Nanavut Independent Television, Municipality of Igloolik, Elders and Youth (CLEY) and others, this online Community Radio is “The first step in DID’s pilot project, Angiqatigingniq Deciding Together, to adapt today’s media communication tools to the traditional Inuit skill of listening respectfully to different points of view…”.
