Internet & Energy Solutions to Enable Thriving Communities

Young Inuit filmmakers enrich culture and community by sharing creativity online

Arviat Film Society members Evano Jr Aggark and Shelton Nipisar describe how they use video to retain their culture and language, inspire youth, gather knowledge from Elders and communicate with people in their community and beyond. Through the QINIQ network, they use Facebook, blogs, and Youtube to share their perspectives on life in Arviat, Nunavut. Faster access to the Internet would increase their ability to communicate effectively and help inspire others around them. Video sponsored by SSi Canada (https://www.ssicanada.com) operators of the QINIQ (https://www.qiniq.com) broadband network in Nunavut. Thanks to Arviat filmmakers Evano Jr Aggark, Sylvia Aggark, Eric Anoee, Seepa Aulatjut, Gord Billard, Ramon Kaviok, Shelton Nipusar of the Arviat Film Society (https://www.facebook.com/ArviatFilmSociety/) for your help in making this video.
