Channel is ‘a space for Inuit to see themselves on television’
Tom McLeod, an Inuvialuk and Gwich’in storyteller from Aklavik, N.W.T., and Inuit TV co-CEO Lucy Qavavauq, are ready to bring more Inuktut and Inuit-centric television programming into people’s homes.
“Inuit TV network is really important because it’s a space for Inuit to see themselves on television. It’s a space to hear our languages … where Inuit can create whatever content we want,” said McLeod.
McLeod is a filmmaker who has worked as a radio personality, produced TV for the Inuvialuit Communications Society, edited the Inuktitut Magazine.
