IsumaTV: an independent interactive network of Inuit and Indigenous multimedia


IsumaTV is an independent interactive network of Inuit and Indigenous
multimedia. IsumaTV uses the power and immediacy of the Web to bring
people together to tell stories and support change.

Our tools enable Indigenous people to express reality in their own voices:
views of the past, anxieties about the present and hopes for a more decent
and honorable future. Our sincere goal is to assist people to listen to
one another, to recognize and respect diverse ways of experiencing our
world, and honor those differences as a human strength.

IsumaTV uses new networking technology to build a new era of communication
and exchange among Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and communities
around the globe.

IsumaTV was launched in January 2008 by Igloolik Isuma Productions,
independent producers of The Fast Runner Trilogy of award-winning
Inuit-language films: Atanarjuat The Fast Runner, The Journals of Knud
Rasmussen, and Before Tomorrow; in association with Nunavut Independent TV
Network (NITV), imagineNATIVE Film+Media Arts Festival, Vtape, Native
Communications Society of the NWT and other non-profit agencies.
