Digital Drum – Aboriginal Cultural Expression

With the support of the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network designed a sophisticated Website last year to allow people to showcase their traditional storytelling, community traditions, music and other cultural activities.

Supported through the efforts of Executive Producer Wayne Clark, Producer Philip Djwa and a host of other talented people, the Digital Drum Website provides an interface for people to upload videos and post other multimedia content and hyperlinks.

For example, see Qallunajatut Urban part 2 to listen to watch Inuit traditional skills with an Inuit explanation and English transcript. Playing Eastern Tide: Mildred Milliea part 1, part 2 and part 3 tell the story of Mi’kmaq Native Dr. Milliea who has dedicated her life to preserving Mi’kmaq (mic). Explore these and other cultural adventures at Digital Drum.
