3.5.1.5 Access to Local Production

The Internet has enabled the provision of access to materials that have previously only existed in libraries or public institutions’ collections. Often, Indigenous peoples have been the subjects of such material but have had limited or no access to it. However, the materials in question are now increasingly found online, which allows the Indigenous media to find relevant material that can expand their programming. The digitization of Indigenous productions by academic institutions and governments is undoubtedly an essential element for the dissemination of local content.
