IRC – CBC Prepares For Indigenous-Language Digital Archive Project
AUGUST 25, 2017
More than 64,000 hours of CBC North TV and Radio content broadcast in Indigenous languages, including Inuvialuktun, will be transferred from old reels, cassettes and CDs into digital formats.
Over the next five years, CBC will begin digitizing, cataloging, and sharing their Indigenous-language content into an online library, which will then be shared to as many communities as possible with a focus on those that are directly linked.
The goal of this project is to preserve and protect a unique record of the languages and cultures of many Northern communities for generations to come.
If you have ideas or input on how CBC can best make this content available, or questions about the project, please contact:
